We had no idea where we were going. We had hopped on a city bus just to ride in the opposite direction than the day before.
The bus stopped and we walked to a local cafe for a latte. Then we wandered by this huge city park with an outside barrier wall. This image jumped out at me and stopped me in my tracks. The combination of withering vines, textured concrete, and graffiti combined is both beautiful and stunning.
This image is forever be embedded in my mind.
The work shown below, "A" is for Apple, reminds me of this photo. I was not thinking about this photo when I painted the piece, but I realized the connection much later. Somewhere deep in the recesses of my brain the visual memory was there, just hiding and waiting.
Isn't it fascinating how memory works?
