accidental art

F-Line, Broadway-Lafayette, 2014
On the F-Line at Broadway Lafayette there is this wall where rusted water has leaked down and created this pretty amazing abstract piece.  There is texture where the paint is coming off the wall.  The background wall is brown but there is this reddish hue mixed in with yellows and white.  And it keep developing out, especially after it rains.  Yes, this wall is probably a toxic combination of mold and who-knows-what else but it is absolutely beautiful to me. Sometimes these hidden gems are enough in themselves.  Water created this piece and it continues to change and grow. I'm sure some inspector will see this one day and decide it's hazardous to our health and wipe it clean but until that happens more visual stim for me.  

In the meantime, I've picked up a couple of sketch books to paint again. I had set aside art for awhile when I was trying to figure out my writing "focus."  I'm learning that I could paint and sketch and write at will.  The only limitations are the ones that I impose upon myself. Time to break out my knives/brushes and paint for the sheer joy of it.  I've decided to go back to painting on paper because they are easier to store than canvas.  Let's see how long that stays true once I start working.  

All for now.
