Often when I create abstracts, I find one of my photos that is ugly, a mistake, blurred, or that I have no practical use for and challenge myself to make something artistic from it. I have no idea why I snapped the photo my abstract is based on. Perhaps it was the mystery of what was attached to the post and removed, leaving only scraps of tape.

(my high school's colors)
Cropped, enhanced, manipulated, reworked.
|Original photo taken at a local park from above|
a painted, square wooden post with duct tape
and other blue tape stuck to the top. The
background is shredded bark mulch.
