The Blue Bench Series
Ok, this is what happens after you retire. You start projects that otherwise you would have passed over as superfluous.
I found and old bench in my basement that was given to me some time ago. In a moment of boredom, I decided to sand it down and give it new life. After sanding it down, I gave the bench it’s new array of color.
As I was painting, I started to think about how the bench could serve as a cool catalyst for a new photo series for my talented photographer wife, Ann Marie. What would happen if I asked people to choose an object to be featured in photographs with them on the bench? An object that could be described as important to them, an object that they would value above many other material things we collect in life.
