An Old Plastic Container

It may not look like much, but this old plastic container from Double Rainbow Ice Cream has been through a lot.  This week marks the 16th Anniversary of my departure from a downtown life and officially dedicating my life to making art.  This container has been through it all, I started using it sometime in the mid-1990’s for a water container for my brushes when I am painting or gluing.  Countless brushes have come and gone, but this container has been through it all.  Every now and then I peel off a bit of the layered acrylic crud that builds up.  So much of my art is about recycling and this old container is part of the process.  For now, I’ll keep on using it…
