Jean Dubuffet in Speedway

I was walking through a Speedway neighborhood 
a couple years ago when I noticed 
a driveway that had been repaired with slurry seal 
in a manner resembling the artwork 
of French Artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985).
Since then, it's as though the long-dead painter
has taken up summer residency here
to paint the streets and driveways with easy,
drippy strokes to form interesting
compositions on the grayed asphalt.

 Jean Dubuffet. l'Hourloupe. 1966. Ink on Paper
