Discarded

Antique snap shots spurred my Discarded series of works, which is the first gallery I’d like to present for review. These images are inspired by vintage snapshots that I’ve found in junk shops and antique stores. Over years of browsing. I’d often find myself sifting through bins of black and whites, and polaroids, looking carefully at each person and wondering who they were, and how they ended up for sale like that. I decided to start a series of paintings featuring these images. I’ve worked in multiple mediums for this series, and have had my best success with transparent watercolor and encaustic. I also have plans to do some new works, using oil/cold wax techniques.
