Polaroid paintings

Around 1990 when I was living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I would snap pictures on an old Polaroid camera, using expired film bought at discount. I walked around New York City capturing what caught my eye, and using the interestingly overexposed and discolored prints as inspiration for large paintings on paper. These pieces are 70″x60″ (177×152 cm). They are a mix of watercolor, acrylic and gouache, with heavy gesso borders painted on top to simulate the thick paper around the edges of a polaroid.
