Oil painting Variation on an Obelisk by Gary Eleinko

Variation on an Obelisk

Variation on an Obelisk    1997/2013  wood, oil, stain, varnish, copper.    apprx. 100" x 38"

This is an older piece I did in 1997 for a sculpture exhibition in Pontiac.  It has been displayed outdoors, and thus it had undergone lots of decay and rot.  For the last several months of 2013 I've been restoring, repairing, repainting, restaining, and revarnishing it.  I think it's actually a much better piece now then it was originally.  Over the years my thoughts and observations have led me to new insights and thus the work has evolved.
