Centered in the square canvas sits an empty copper bucket with golden highlights. Surrounding the bucket are swathes and strokes of paint in electric pastel tones of pink, blue, and green; fluorescent peach and white drips of paint trickle down beneath a pair of blue lips on the left side.
Urban Dictionary lists the slang version or usage of the word, copper bucket, as a derogatory term for a poor person. Personally, I've never heard it used in this manner; maybe it's a regional thing? While painting this copper bucket, I thought about how copper is an electrical and thermal conductor; and how it reacts to the surrounding thermal elements. Next to silver, copper has the highest thermal conductivity; it takes on the temperature of what is being applied quickly and completely. How do you think this feels?
