Title: Ring Toss
20 x 20"
Weight: 10.0 lbs.
I'd been storing a crate full of Perrier bottles for three years before I finally got around to photographing them for this painting. Then it took me another year and a half to finally get to this painting which I'd originally wanted to do as one of my very first pieces.
I have a real affinity for patterns and repetition, and enjoyed portraying the sea of bottle tops while exploring the variances from one bottle to another. Originally titled “green bottles”, a friend of mine pointed out that it reminded him of the ‘ring toss’ game at the carnival, and it was thusly renamed.
Congratulations Roderick for winning “Best of Show” at the 40th, 4th Ave. Street Fair in Tucson, Arizona! I’m also thrilled that you have been selected as the poster artist for their 2010 spring show.
