“Becuase it’s business, not people, it’s always take and it’s never give, and thats not the way I want to live.” – Hot Water Music
“Whoever finds me, keeps me, Whoever loves me, deserves me, Whoever abandons me, denies us”
Some years ago I started placing paintings in public places for others to find and take, if they chose to. I put a painting inside a plastic bag, with the above note, and wait for someone to come by and decide if they want to be involved. Sometimes it takes a while for one to get picked up, sometimes I have to move them, and other times they are gone within hours. I take a picture of them waiting to be taken, a picture when they are gone, and hopefully some day I’ll get a picture of them where they end up.
