Bones Will Crumble

This is the new painting I was trying not to “lick.” When I first moved to Philadelphia, I was fascinated with radiators because I had never really seen them before. We don’t have them in Texas. Ours was in good condition but you could tell it had been around for quite a while. Layers of paint had been built up and were flaking off. It seemed like the machine was struggling to stay useful. The crumbling facade, the white paint, dust, all reminded me of ancient ruins.
