One Man's Trash, Another Man's Treasure - FINALIST, March 2019Save Favorites
I painted this in Apalachacola, FL. What I was attracted to in this scene was how the clutter and garbage looked so interesting in its orchestration and patterns. What made me paint it was meeting the owner and hearing what he had to say. He told me that the city had been trying to get him to clean his property for some time. But he thought it looked great...it was his collection of stuff that he loved. He seemed to cherish everything scattered around. The first thing I thought was, one mans trash...another mans treasure. And I had to paint it. I even got him (the owner) to pose for me for a small session during the painting. When he posed, thats when the blinding light began to lower itself on the scene. I really enjoyed making this painting.
