“The Amphora” 1981 Acrylic on wood panel 22 x 20

Painted on a found piece of wood, possibly a drawer bottom, this early piece from 1981 shows an ancient terracotta vessel decorated with the striped motorboat that was part on an ongoing series that year. Collection of the artist.

The antiquities of old were once new. What was once a fair trade for three beads is now worth 250 dollars. Boating through time the distant shore comes into view.
