These tires are part of the playground at our local YMCA; a group of painters meet there on Thursdays. We pay $2, set up card tables, and work on whatever we'd like--mostly we laugh.
As I walked out one afternoon, I noticed the shadows and years of wear on the tires--I had found a subject--The Y, 24x30, acrylic on panel. (Obviously, recycling has been around for a while.) I took liberty with their location and pictured them on one of our sandy beaches. A new Y is being built--it would be nice if a concrete sculpture of these tires were installed out front.
