I'm too tired to write much, but the artist Pamela Talese today made me an email present of this painting by her colleague Valeri Larko. Pamela thought I would like it because we've been talking about when to turf out appliances this week, and I figured you'd like it for that reason, too. Makes you think twice about throwing all that steel away, right?
Here's what Valeri says on her web page: "I spent the better part of 1999 through the end of 2003 painting on location at an active salvage yard in Hackettstown, NJ. I am amazed at how much stuff winds up at the dump." You can see more of her salvage yard series here.
As for what I have to say, that's it. Tune back in on Monday for more. If you can't wait till then, feel free to take a look at my new(ish) Facebook page, and if you want, leave a note on my wall saying why 350 is the planet's most important number (or look at my wall if you don't know).
