Storage Bin – Watercolor painting from an original photograph. The photograph was taken in Crawford, Texas, a long time before President Bush moved there. It has since been torn down. This picture speaks to me about my life. No matter how rusted and beaten we feel, there is always a Door out and a Ladder down. We just have to find the courage to leave the darkness and find the Ladder. This was created in a summer painting course in college – we would go to some location around town on Monday to take pictures, do a one hour photo development that night, pick one to paint the next day, and spend the rest of the week painting it.
