Accidental Painting

In the few days I've had between shipping work to New York and getting on a plane to attend the opening reception at Stricoff Fine Art I've been trying to finish some pieces for Open Studios which is coming up soon.

I was developing a panel which has been hanging around my studio for a long time - adding more poster fragments and stencils - when something suddenly started to happen. I had been playing with the hooks I managed to retrieve from an old commercial laundry in my neighborhood which closed down recently and it became apparent that I needed to do a portrait of them. This painting came together yesterday.
It needs a bit more work but will hopefully be finished for my Open Studio on 16th & 17th April.

  1. somehow slightly anthropomorphic (just the slightest bit) but jaunty to me. Very nice. Yellow never sells though, what are you thinking?? (I kid!)
