This is just as powerful in blue as the one from 4 January 2011. I see someone asked about blue when you posted the blast furnace image from January. So how do you decide if you will do an image that is almost the same again? I think the “B” from Bakers keyboard lounge is one that you've done with a change from 5x7 24 October 2011 to 7x5 8 August 2010. And “Water tank and Red Door” 26 January 2009 East side Water tank” 19 November 2008 are real close to being almost the same with just subtle differences.

Hi Fred, I just can't get anything by you can I. The photo used for the blast furnace was shot in the early 1980's and is closer in color to the first painting. I like Dylan's lyrics, she's an artist she take's the darkness from the nighttime and paint the daytime black. I guess it is how you feel or something you see that triggers a desire to do it another way. Artistic license. And sometimes I forget I have painted it before, I usually try to make sure I haven't painted one before. But sometimes I like the image so much I just need to do i again, hopefully a little different and better.
