Lost Art is an interactive street art project. I find objects in the street, paint street scenes onto them, and then leave them out to be found on the streets where they were painted. It's an exercise in recycling, in letting go, and in reaching out. I'm curious to know whether the paintings will be found, or if they will remain discarded the way their canvases were before I painted them. So if you find one of the pieces, please let me know in the comments!

Lost Art #8: Main Street, Stroudsburg PA (Update: Found!)
UPDATE: Lost Art #8 has been found!
Cherise Roberts Decker has found this painting and put in the window of her business, Gateway Abstract on N 7th street in Stroudsburg, PA! Thanks so much to Cherise for claiming it. It's the first one so far to be discovered and reported, so it will always have a special place in my heart. If you live in Stroudsburg, you can drop by Gateway Abstract and give my regards both to her and to the painting! Cherise was kind enough to send in this picture of the painting in its new home. Below is the original post.
Lost Art makes its third appearance in the United States today. This time, it's on Main Street in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, at the corner of North 7th Street. Having grown up in Stroudsburg, I'll be interested to hear if this one gets discovered by an old friend or neighbor :). This will be the last painting in the US for some time, as later today I'll be heading to the airport and back out of the country for a few months. So if you're in the Stroudsburg area, this might be your last chance for a little while! But never fear. I'll be returning again someday soon. And if you're looking forward to the series continuing back in Europe, you'll be hearing from me in the coming days!
This painting, acrylic on found cement board, 21 3/4" x 14", was left on Main Street in Stroudsburg, PA, on June 26, 2014 at 11:30 am.
