I cannot remember how many years ago I painted this plaque. It was during my folk art painting era. For years it hung on the back gate, exposed to all the weather could throw at it.
It seems I did not do a very good job of weather proofing it and slowly it disintegrated. The paint became crackled and flaky. The rain soaked into the layers. I thought it was ready to be dumped.
But Jack would not hear of it being thrown away. “It is wabi sabi” he said. “I am going to resurrect it”.
So it lay on the top shelf with all the other things waiting to be repaired.
When I told Jack the WP photo challenge this week was “weathered”, he said “I know exactly what you can use”…. I had forgotten I had ever painted this….
