At work is meant to be the title of this series and also describe my time in the art studio. Nose to the grindstone, making hay while the sun shines and burning the midnight oil. Just as in the painting, I like to peel as much away as much as possible and get at the essence of what's there. What's there is work. This series is painted on plywood I found outside a store in the Sunset district that went out of business. In some oblique way I feel as if I'm honoring the legacy of that lost enterprise.
