my first painting of 2009


This is what I have so far. I can't wait to work on it some more. I have a feeling it wants to be yellow. Here are a few detail shots:




I got the honeycomb cardboard for free when my bank was under renovation. I happened to be going to the ATM the day the new furniture arrived. The honeycomb was in the boxes to protect the new chairs. Since the deliverymen were going to throw it away, they let me take as much as I wanted. I have several more large pieces that I plan to use in future paintings.

I like to push the boundaries of what materials are acceptable for use in fine art while still creating work that is visually pleasing. My improvisational and intuitive style is all about adaptation, making beautiful things out of trash. It is not just about salvage. It is about redemption.
