Recent Painting “Daydreaming”


Acrylic and ink on 8″ x 10″ x .75″ canvas.

This one was a challenge for the camera.  The drapes are actually more tangerine, but I didn’t want to manipulate the image, so here it is.

Abandoned Art

On our recent journey to Paris, France we took the opportunity to have some Art Abandonment fun.  The first piece was left at the Holiday Inn near the Nashville Tennessee airport.



Several were left at various places in the Nashville airport.  This was abandoned near our gate at Chicago O’Hare while waiting to board our plane to Paris.



In Paris we enjoyed coffee at le Parisien on the Rue Notre Dame de Nazareth in the 3rd arrondissement, and

Le Parisien



left a little something behind.



Another was left on a back wall of the Musée des Arts et Métiers along Rue de Vertbois.



Here are several more photos of abandoned pieces:

The exciting part about abandoning art is to put in place and photograph it before being seen.  Hopefully all pieces have cheered someone’s day.
