"In the Garden at the No-Tell Motel", 2015 - acrylic and collage on fiberboard, 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm).
A festive -- even perhaps somewhat frantic -- atmosphere prevails at the motel where four out of five visitors is named "John Smith", and nobody ever seems to have any luggage when they check in.
A rough and brushy base of gray, yellow and ochre is overlaid with an assortment of large cut paper pieces in gray-green, off-white, and yellow. On top of this is arranged fragments of photographs, bits of road maps of the American midwest, and fragments of colored paper, all woven together with a filigree of fine "doodles" in white, off-white and gray.
This picture is ready to hang; signed and dated both front and back, with the title on the back.
