Man-made Canvas with Natural Elements as the "Artist" Uruguay, Portugal, Italy, France, Chile

Stucco, wood and metal exterior surfaces are the canvases, the texture created naturally with the effects of weather. Sun, rain, snow and wind, heat and cold all leave their mark over time. These naturally aged surfaces have become a compelling draw to my eye as I travel in different landscapes. The textures of the stucco and the unique patina'd metal provide distinct visual surfaces. There is a sense of timelessness in this aging process.
