  1. This one is very beautiful; great blue and I like the word as well.

    • Thanks, Harrie. One friend says the word is “Uber,” a kind of taxi service in the U.S. But I think it may be the beginning of “Oberlin,” the town in Ohio. We’ll never know for sure.

      • To me it looks like an ‘o’, and then ‘ober’ sounds pretty German to me…

        • Well, “ober” translates to “upper” in English, and “über” (with the umlaut) translates to “about,” so either way, it could be German that someone forgot to use the umlaut on. I suppose it could be someone’s name, too . . .

    • Thank you, Peter. I guess it is a painting of sorts.

        I thought all of these dumpster shots were “paintings of sorts.”

        • You’re really right, Alan. They are all paint on a metal substrate. When there is rust or paper or plastic stickers, they might be considered mixed media.

  3. I think you’re right, it looks more like an interrupted “O” than a “U.” In any case, what a nice sheen, how very coooool the palette is, and how expressive the gestures.

    • It would be really weird if this were the beginning of “Oberlin.” It’s just something I like to think. On the other hand, the cloud shape with rain coming out of it is very Oberlin-like! These colors really are cool, aren’t they. Chilly even.
