Taken Words Series

Words form the architecture

I constantly search for phrases, sayings and quotes; verbal tidbits that strike me as funny or fascinating or true.  These found or stolen words are painted over and over on a carefully prepared surface. The composition develops in the leftover shapes and intersections.

In the end, the words are nearly obscured but the story shimmers in the remaining spaces.
