acrylic on skateboard wheels on found frame; 12x12x3”

“Skateboarding is one sport you can do while social distancing. So I’ve been doing a lot of it in this time of coronavirus, so much that it wore down my wheels. What do you do with worn out skateboard wheels? Make a wall sculpture. I mounted the wheels to a frame from Goodwill and colored it all with bright acrylic paint.”
