First Dumpster Painting



Green Dumpster

2002
Collection of the City of Seattle

This is my first painting of a dumpster. It was included in a show I did in 2002, the theme of the show was the color green in our city. And Seattle was and still is very green. I never got back around to painting any more Dumpsters again until 2007. There are times when I think it's a good idea to choose a unifying theme to work with on a body of work; in this case it led me to the dumpster as a subject. But there are times when I feel like I fall short on subjects executed under a theme and instead would rather just paint whatever feels good to paint. That will be the "Feel Good Show."

A Fond Farewell to Dumpsters of Seattle

I have posted two of my favorite Seattle dumpsters today, the last day of dumpsters in Seattle... guess I'll be looking elsewhere for Dumpsters. Or maybe I'll be making paintings of plastic bags.
