Sticks
22" x 30"
Watercolor
$  1,800.00
 
There is an order to stacking sticks that is as old as our species. Simplicity and the deliberate primitive appearance of the forms present everyday chores as universal and ancient. There is something about treating seemingly mundane things with dignity and respect that makes them special in our lives. I've learned to look for old familiar colors in unexpected places. By studying the complexity of bark and how it protects the life of the tree, I created an order and rational space to transform an every day object into possibilities. The box composition fits the orderliness of stacked sticks very well, the essential structure needed since our time began and we began to build fires for our own survival. This painting was selected for the San Diego National Exhibition.
