Oil on museum quality, archival ampersand gessobord™ panel - 6” x 8”
OK, so I lied. Perhaps it doesn't have to be an animate subject to have fun with the light and paint. While I was in "chrome" mode I thought I would experiment with some loose paint and a piece of iconic porcelain. No Dadaist I, but I figured if it was good enough for Marcel Duchamp last century with his readymade "Fountain," why not have a go (no pun intended) and reprise it here. This particular plumbing fixture resides in the mens room of the Dogwood Gourmet in Baltimore. Elegant marble tile, rose tones and dramatic lighting raise the lowly pissoir to new heights, creating a theatrical aquatic display.
I'll be out of the studio for a couple of days. Look for new work on Saturday.
