Installed and lift on abandoned property, 58 Carrington Avenue, Providence, RI 02906

 

A month later:

It looked as if the property had been cleaned up. The overgrown weeds, trash, and debris which had collected more so than pictured above was removed. The painting was removed, too, tossed onto the floorboard of the porch by the railing.

This was actual proof of a negative reaction towards one of my painting’s public placement, albeit, the second one I’ve actually left outside. I guess not everyone would appreciate the works as I had hoped. Although, I’m not sure I’d take a work left outside for who-knows-how-long, especially with the whole bedbug epidemic I hear about in Rhode Island.
