oil pastel and colored pencils, 4 x 4 inches on canvas
A handful of straight pins were among the found objects hidden in the heating grate. They had a bit of corrosion and some green tint, as if they were made of copper. Being so thin I was worried that the variation of color would be difficult to convey, but by dipping the tips of the colored pencils in turpentine, the hard edge softened enough to apply color in small detail.
There is only one "painting" left to do. See all of the images so far on flickr.
