No Fishing Sign no. 58

Cardboard, paint, conte
12.25" x 24.5" 

An underpainted field of ocean teal serves as ground for this horizontal No Fishing Sign. The top edge is of the painting is defined by a brushy application of off-white. Wide, wet sage-grey strokes float atop this ground, obscuring hits of crimson and French grey, and remnants of text written in dense sky blue paint. A delicate white chalk prohibition, “NO FISHING”, remains visible.
