Porta Potties, 8 x 10, oil on panel

The Three Rivers Arts Festival is a big deal here in Pittsburgh. It is usually a rainy couple of weeks but not this year. Yesterday I gave a workshop to a few artists, one of which needed to be close to the porta potty. I thought, OK why not make that the subject of my demo? It was an excellent example of complementary colors, simple shapes, light and color families. A smart ass passerby told me it was a crappy painting. I have to admit it brought a smile to both of us.

  1. Beauty can be found just about anywhere! You took on a crappy subject and made a wonderful conversation piece. Now, where's that Sears Catalog when you need one.
    When's your next workshop?
