In 2006 I'd done about 10 paintings. I was shooting Twilight in Portland and decided to take painting supplies with me and paint in the hotel after working all day. I took 3 paintings and put them on the railroad tracks, behind the hotel, to get rained on.
I thought they were ruined --at first. I started scrapping it off --and I liked it. I started turning the hose on paintings while they were drying -- I even put them in the shower. I thought it was cool to see what stayed behind --it was like getting the infection out."
