Constructions 37 and 38

Construction #37: Found wood construction 30 x 8"
Construction #38: Found wood construction 29 x 11"

These works are available for sale.

I had some fun just playing with arrangements of found pieces to arrive at a composition that works. All the pieces have their finish as found--I didn't paint anything on these two. I used all natural wood for the first and mixed the colors and textures of different woods, moldings, and weathered paint for the second.

When I picked pieces to submit to Cambridge Art Association's ongoing Summer Art Fair, I was disappointed to discover these two were excluded by the maximum size limit of 24".
