"Bernheisel's Junkyard"

Oil over acrylic paint on 5/8 birch panel, 2018
24" x 24" 
I shot this image in 1974, my senior year in college as a young art student.  I carried this slide around with a number of others for 44+ years before digitizing them this past year.  That effort, causing me to look at the work from so long ago, was time a time machine that let me go back and chat with that younger version of myself.  This painting was done while I was having that dialog

"Midwestern Motel"

Oil, Polychromos pencil, cold wax, gloss varnish on cotton rag
20cm x 20cm, 2018

for the Artre Libre "20 años, en 20x20" Exhibition, Zaragosa - Barcelona, 2019

I shot the image I used for the painting in 1974 as a slide, carrying it with me throughout 4+ decades of living.  After our marriage in 1974, my sife, Connie, and I worked as resident managers of the Midwestern Motel in Fremont. Nebraska while she completed her final semester of college, prior to us moving to Madison, Wisconsin where I earned my Master of Art in 1977.  The little yellow 1974 VW Super Beetle belonged to my parents, I probably borrowed it, parking it in front of the office.

The time of Kodachrome and slide film is a time of the past, and a time of my past which emerged this past year when I started scanning slides I've carried around all this time.  It has been interesting to interact with those memories.
