While waiting for my sewing machine to be cleaned and refreshed?..........I decided to finish some drawings I had started, temporarily titled Plumbing.
When we were in San Diego I found these groups of plumbing fixtures near the Visions Gallery and other buildings. These are on an old Navy Base that has been completely changed since the Navy left. Every building had a similar group of fixtures in these bright colors outside, so they were hard to miss.
While in my photographer's studio (PRS Ass.in Kensington, MD) I noticed this plumbing behind a door. These drawings are created with colored pencil on a heavy watercolor paper.
This is also in the PRS Studio and part of the plumbing in the previous drawing. I do not know why subjects of this kind appeal to me, except I do think they make unusual subjects for the still-life genre.
If anyone can think of a title for this work better than Plumbing, I would appreciate it. I've been told Plumbing brings up images of sinks and toilets.......however, they, too, may make unusual subjects.
