Created in part of a three work series for an exhibit and Perry Carlson Gallery in Mt Vernon, WA, this work abstractly represents the smoke stacks of the distant oil refinery plant along the horizon.  The series is titled Relics and explores my region in three distinct aspects: Forest/resource, shoreline/material processing and bay/product export.  This work portrays the shoreline refinery stacks as future “relics” after this age of petroleum refinement, export and over consumption has run it’s course.
