Blast Furnace Number 1
Created by Meghan Wilbar
Blast Furnace Number 1 was created with oil paint on a handcrafted wood panel. It has d-rings on the back for installation. It is signed and dated on the back. The painting was created with thick texture applied with a palette knife as well as thin layers of glazing for overall luminosity. The painting was created in a series of work investigating the steel mill and mines operated by the Colorado Fuel and Iron Industry. The painting was included in various shows depicting the history of steel production in Colorado.
