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 has made another appearance in the USA :). Jason and I have been visiting our families in Pennsylvania, so I took the opportunity to find myself a hunk of trash and leave behind a little souvenir of our time here. I took this funny shaped piece of scrap wood I found and went to sit across from the Deer Head Inn, a historic jazz venue in the Delaware Water Gap, near where I grew up. We went there a few nights ago to hear some music and it seemed like a nice place to sit and paint for a while on a pretty summer day. It seems like it's not that often that I get to spend time back home anymore, and there are so many places here that are sentimental to me. I only had time to do the one painting on this trip, but hopefully I'll get to do more in the future. And I hope that this one finds itself a home with some nice person who happens upon it later today! As always, if you find it, or know somebody who does, please let me know in the comments. And if you're waiting for the next one in Europe, you won't have long to wait. I fly back over there tomorrow!
Happy summer to everyone, and keep looking for paintings in the streets!
This painting, acrylic on found wood chunk, 11.5" x 10.5", was left on Main Street, in Delaware Water Gap PA on July 7th, 2016, at 11:30 am.
