  1. The colors and shapes in this series are just so appealing, so – can I say it? – pretty. There’s a lot going on, too – those scratched lines bring to mind both contrails and the Nazca lines. The rusted part is like a furry bird, once again I anthropomorphize in spite of myself. There is a lightness to the touch here, I see your delight clearly.

    • Yes, you can always say “pretty” on my blog. Even “beautiful.” I think it’s because I never went to art school that I don’t have the same aversion as properly educated artists do to those words or to what they describe. I probably forced you to think of a bird in this case—because I saw a bird. That’s why I left the emptyish space to the right, so she would have someplace to fly. This dumpster was replete with creatures airborne and marine. Contrails for sure for the sky residents, but I never would have thought of the Nazca lines. Love it.
