This painting hung at our wedding party. After that it’s history becomes a little murky, but I believe this piece no longer exists.

Too bad, it was a real nice piece and should have had a longer life…

TitleThe Big Habit”
Dimensions
– 71″ x 37″ x 11″
Format –  acrylic latex, charcoal, and newspaper on cardboard construction
Date
1993

[ In the collection of the artist ]

Our Thai food delivery guy has been in love with this piece for over 5 years. It hangs at the top of the stairs into our apartment and every time he delivers food from The Star of Siam, just down the street, he remarks about the piece.

Sometimes he has a question, but usually it’s just a compliment on the big cigarette box. He smokes Marlboro red pack too.

If he had a bigger place to live in he would own the piece. I told him to let me know when he moves to a larger apartment. Until then, The Big Habit stays hanging at the top of our stairs…

Before I started this painting, I first constructed it using 4 used silkscreens, each measuring 36″ x 24″ (approximately) nailed and hinged together. I then used cardboard to build-out the top part with the sun and the moon.

Throughout this piece I included a number of hidden references, and as for what happened to this piece, that will remain a mystery…
