I found an interview with Charles Washington, Houston’s environmental artist at
Mr. Washington says, he was forced to further develop his talent in the 1980’s during a time of homelessness.
He admires Pablo Picasso, and I remember reading that Picasso also collected, even from the local dump.
Charles is a multimedia artist, using whatever he finds, or gathers: I especially loved his use of old doors and empty paint cans, as it gives me a new reason to paint on the scraps of wood that I love. Charles also paints empty paint cans, I may not follow on that one, however watching his You Tube interview inspired me to return to painting again, and for that I am thankful. Perhaps Charles Washington will inspire you as well.
