Found Art

"There is no reason not to consider the world as one gigantic painting"
Robert Rauschenberg
Unlike all the wonderful walks I took in the Black Forest in Germany, this walk in the woods in an area called Spring Valley Wildlife Area offered entirely different material.
I suppose it's all about perspective, but I agree with Raushenberg.

Sorry for the lapse in posting.
Today I was preoccupied and painting was difficult.
Apparently this happens every Winter and is a result to climate change.
I wonder what Sarah Palin would attribute it to?
I love the part when he says that the starlings are incribing a secret language in the air. It reminds me of the method in which I paint.
