Art Description

Collage: Paper, Photo and Graphite on Paper.

While working on the related collage, "Like a Chimney", I hit upon the idea of a sea of cigarette packages. The young boy's look of wonder sealed it for me. It reminds me of when my father would light up a cigarette in his police car when I was a kid. That very first smell from the car lighter was intoxicating.

Unframed on masonite, offset from wall 2" on wood runners.
