Crumpled Chips Wrapper
30" x 40" Oil on Canvas. 2011
ABOUT THE PAINTING
A crumpled Doritos bag found along a nature trail. The folds, reflections, shades and tones that oddly mimick the autumn leaves and green grass on the trail it was found.
Although I studied frame restoration at the Louvre in Paris, France, I prefer to sell my original oil paintings unframed due to the history of frames and the framing process.
I feel that the frame finishes the painting and offers the patron an outlet to express their response to the painting and to contribute to the completion of the artwork.
It brings me joy to see the various ways in which my patrons have chosen to complete their pieces.
