Tuesdays in my neighbourhood is recycling day…the population is very conscientious and we’re almost 100% recyclers…
This painting was created in response to the RB challenge for images of everyday things…
Onion skins, empty overturned can and lime halves on the Stock exchange news…the news are from years ago, but as you know nothing has changed much
…Toronto Ontario, Canada…

I have painted many everyday things over the years, from used tea bags, to half eaten food, tools, and door knobs…everything is grist for my painting mill see below…

My ultimate ambition in life
is to be recycled. When I die
I shall not be put
with the newspapers, plastic bottles,
glass (separated into green, brown and white) ,
cans and aluminium foil
into the box to be collected
on alternate Mondays
- that is not dignified
for a human,
and besides it is unhygienic.
But recycled I will be
into soil and air,
beetle, centipede and blackbird,
and the blossom
that every year comes
and fades.
Yes,
I’ll be back
.P.Hansford

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
