Childhood Memories

Carpet pad palm trees.

Carpet Scraps
My family moved out of Wyoming when I was in Second Grade. It was a cold December day (I think) when we all loaded up in our big blue suburban and our old “white car” and drove the fourteen hours to our new home in West Linn, Oregon.

Upon move in, it was determined that Me and my (2) Brother’s would share a room in the basement. The room residents prior to us had a cat. A cat who pissed on the shag carpet that laid in our new bedroom. My Dad, being the good man that he is, pulled out the cat-piss-covered shag carpet in our room and replaced it with a flat blue tweed like carpet…it much improved our new living situation- Thanks pops.

I made the childhood art piece above by taking the carpet pad scraps (that my Dad pulled out of the room mentioned above) and I cut them with exacto blades and glued them down onto a cardboard backing to form these palm trees. I painted the trees themselves with red paint.
