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!
My old friend Tara, who is living in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was following the blog and noticed when I left this one not far from her house during my trip to the States. So she went out to look for it and found it before it disappeared! I'm so happy that this piece found a loving home. And I'm also very grateful to Tara, who was nice enough to send in this photo of the piece in its new environment. It's nice to know that some of these objects' stories have happy endings!
Hello again, everyone!
I haven't had quite as much time for painting on my US trip as I had hoped. But I wanted to make sure I did at least one while I was over here! I've been getting some requests to come back to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania so that's where I decided to paint my latest. I found this cool old oak barrel lid and took it into the park with me, where I enjoyed a lovely summer afternoon. I know of at least one person who will recognize the neighborhood and try to get over there to find this one! Whoever finds it, I hope it brightens their day :). And I look forward to getting back to this neck of the woods again in the near future. But for now, I'm on my way back to France!
This painting, acrylic on found oak barrel lid, 16.25" x 16.25", was left in Rose Garden Park, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on July 11th, 2015 at 10am.
