my garage?

Watercolor on Aquabord in progress, and progress, and progress 22X30.
Though not from my garage...I very much appreciate the wonderful "collection" of aged treasures and visual repetition of lines, angles and what will be secret dark spaces perfect for exploring. One of my fondest memories from childhood...exploring my great grandmothers long-abandoned log cabin, built by her and her husband; the decorative wallpaper...newspaper from the nearest rural south Texas town (that was able to produce a paper)...and the nostalgic smells and shapes of furniture re-purposed from a previous life and necessity.
