“Madrone” 70″ x 90″ #8269

I drive by these water tanks all the time out here in West Marin. I finally took some pictures and it’s amazing how similar they are to some of the recent “Weave” paintings I have been making.

Nature has corroded and weathered these surfaces in much the same way as the layering of paint and washes that I use in my work. The formal grid lines of the construction of these barns and water tanks are beautiful contrasts to the out of control degradation that is occurring year after year from the natural elements.
