Archive: "Desk Bear" Paintings (1996)

Paintings: 1996
"Desk Bear #1" (Acrylic on plexi, collaged paper and cardboard box) Approx. 10 x 12 inches.
"Desk Bear #2" (Acrylic on household wall paneling) Approx. 24 x 24 inches.

When I painted these pieces, I recall that I enjoyed the disparity in the textures 
created by the rough collage under #1 and the comparatively smooth 
1960s / 1970s striped paneling under #2.  The paneling for #2 was pulled from 
a remodeling / construction site by my friend Jon (as were the grounds for other pieces of this period).
