Finding Your Way

2"x2" oil on canvas on metal can

This is a piece that was donated to the "Nourish and Sustain" auction at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery in Salem, Oregon. It will be showing February 1-27 with the proceeds benefiting the Marion Polk Food Share.

100 artist were directly mailed an empty can and told to create something . I choose to open it, flatten it and texture it with a hammer on concrete, creating the perfect 2 dimensional surface to mount a picture. What you see here is the small canvas I painted and attached to the front of the flatten can.
