daily painting | quonset hut

Had another wonderful, chilly, sunny January afternoon with fellow artist Liz searching for falling-apart structures out at the defunct navy base on Alameda Pt. We don’t care for charming gardens or beautiful homes. Give us a wonderful tiny little navy quonset hut sheltered in the shadow of a monstrous, mysterious structure any day. This one was painted in the standard US govt pale, pukey yellow, and had the greatest rusty streaks and a mildewy sidewalk in front. These corners of my island are so interesting and surprising. I suppose one day they’ll be razed and replaced with condos. But for now it’s a treasure hunt for these forgotten bits of our military past.
