Broken Cigarette Lighters, Digital Art, 2021
Broken Cigarette Lighters, Watercolor on Paper, 10" x 7", 1989
When I lived in Ottawa, Ontario, I walked everywhere and regularly found interesting metal objects on the sidewalks or in the street. One such object was an old car cigarette lighter that had been yanked out and run over a few times, and the spring coil had stretched out into an interesting spiral. The found object was the inspiration for this painting.
