I took the photo of the lock and chains in an alleyway in Fremont. Dumpster inspiration. This panel is another one that I had started a long time ago as well. It’s becoming clear to me that I had so many panels that have been waiting for me these past few months!

When I started reworking this I knew that I wanted to mimic the urban feel of the lock and chain and the rust spots that were part of the dumpster. So I did that with paints and medium, but it still did not have that edge that I wanted. So I attached a nail wrapped in wire as well as some dark metal grommet type things. Then I knew it was done.
