Source This Painting is Sold This is a painting showing the beginning of the paper making process. Giant loads of logs come on trucks that pass between you and the scene that I have painted. this view changes from time to time. I have shown a time when there is a large pile of logs in a space that is usually empty. It was lucky to have taken pictures at this time. I took photos at other times and showing other views of the same general area. The log trucks, with their loads cut into shorter lengths than shown, go into a huge pile further to the right. I think they get debarked and sent up a conveyor to a chipping area, to be reduced to smaller shapes closer to the end of the process which is pulp for the paper making. The two large shapes are for storage but, to be honest, I have no idea what stage of the process this is. I know that there is a "digester" involved in breaking down the wood fibers. The painting is a very small area of a very large section. My intent, here, is to show the sculptural aspect of the various parts, especially the negative spaces. There is an interesting contrast between the massive and the spidery connections feeding different parts of the composition.
