The Land Grabber’s House ( When is a painting finished)

This photo was taken through instagram with an earlybird filter. I have just always love that filter, to me it looks like an old 70’s polaroid photo. The story behind the land grabber’s house, the man who owned this house fenced in an additional 4 acres which belonged to the state of New Mexico and put a new mobile home on it. He was found out and lost everything. Nice try. When working on the panel below the photo it was to be an abstract. From my poor dwindling memory came land grabber’s house. Some thing just want to be. When do you know that a painting is finished? Best stop before.

ROBE/HOUSE COAT.

A robe is a loose-fitting outer garment. A robe is distinguished from a cape or cloak by the fact that it usually has sleeves. The English word robe derives from Middle English robe (“garment”), borrowed from Old French robe (“booty, spoils”), itself taken from the Frankish word *rouba (“spoils, things stolen, clothes”), and is related to the word rob. FROM WIKIPEDIA

SO THIS IS WHY SO MANY HOUSE COATS ARE TAKEN FROM HOTELS!
