Sloop Jones, part two

In a second segment of our conversation with the Sloop Jones, he  explains his favorite art is "incidental."  Visit the studio on East End, and you’ll see that cardboard boxes that once held cans of paint or a table on which he brushed smocks have become pieces of art, too, thanks to the drips and spills.

Jones also talked about his different take when home owners ask him to make signs for their properties. He prefers to be creative, doing sculptures, rather than just applying words to a board.  He describes a few examples in this podcast. (Pictured at left is "21st Century Flag," one of Jones’ original pieces.)
