Paved Paradise - Part One

© Larry Torno, 2007

I like big, empty parking lots. They remind me of huge, blank canvases just waiting for an artist to come along. I can't imagine creating art on this scale, but think it would probably be an incredible experience.

This lot is actually a small piece of a larger shipping/receiving area. I think the seven open parking spaces look like part of an abstract expressionist painting. The floating, white "comb" and the striped Mark Rothko-like background are simply a beautiful composition that I couldn't improve upon. All I had to do was recognize the potential, seize the opportunity, and claim it for my own.
