Often Lohbado went to the tabernacle and painted on the pages of old discarded books. Some of the books were older than Lohbado, but had no collector value. Painting on the pages gave them a new lease on life. A geometry textbook from around 1940 lay on a bedside table. Lohbado brushed off the dust and noticed dead flies on the window sill and tears in the screen window. He pulled up a chair, got out the paint and felt a communion with the micro world of insects and paper fibres. He set a cup of coffee and plate of toast next to the book and paint, since the stomach played an important role in the digestive model. In the stomach, mental and physical events churned into forms.
