The other day it was raining hard and since I found myself a bit bummed at having been pushed out of my fishing plans, I looked outside my window and decided to paint my weather beaten shed.
The bare wood of the door was once a neglected project but it has become a rustic addition to the aging shed. In this piece it served its purpose of vivid contrast to the fading blue and like a grand hero in some old novel, it still served a purpose despite the visible flaws.
There is no need really to try to explain art to the audience since art is truly an experience every individual interprets on their own, but I can tell you what I was thinking as I laid brush and pigment to paper. You will probably be seeing more artwork like this in the future and although you undoubtedly follow this blog for the fishy subjects, I appreciate your tolerance of my choice of subjects. I also appreciate your tolerance of the crappy cellphone pictures.
