Metal and Wood Rusting Away

Inspired by… the metal and wood rusting away that became a new home for spring vines.

I liked the contrast between the hard metal and the faded paint on the wood. Plant shadows provide repetition of form from an organic material upon a man-made element. The patina of the metal is varied from the bleached out red on the right to the darker deep dents of metal on the left.

This painting was selected for the Greenville Technical College 2020 Blue Granite Review journal. The journal showcases visual art and literature including fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction of Greenville Tech students.
