About this piece:

" Upcycled Wood? What does that mean? This piece of wood was originally used in as a temporary wall during construction of our local High School. The Art department had enthusiastically painted murals on them to beautify the campus. When construction was complete the walls were destined to become landfill. I was able to acquire four 4 x 8 x 4" panels and have used them in various project and even have used them in building storage in my art studio. After disassembling them, I took one of the pieces of plywood and cut in into 48 x 48" and after removing the nails, gessoed (sealed) both sides of the wood to prevent any further damage.

The subject is one of our iconic Torrey Pines trees that lines the coast in North County San Diego, this one being at one of my favorite local spots, "Dip in The Road", Carlsbad.

I chose to use my grid method on this piece, leaving some of the exposed wood in certain areas to show the original wood restored, keeping this piece from the landfill for a long time to come.

When finished I build a thin custom maple wood floating frame and used the same nail holed of the ones removed to secure to the new frame."
