"World Eater' is Done

"DD
This 24x48 painting is an emotional response to how I am feeling about what Trump is doing to our world.

Some of the new paintings coming out of the studio.

"Red" a 30x30 inch oil and cold wax on linen. This one came to me in response to the next one, 
"Let it Be" another 30x30.
Then I went back to "Let it Be" and of course, did not let it be
.

Now, that brings us to today. I appeared on a local radio station and talked about art and how my three deaths affect my art. After coming back to the studio, the first layers of "World Eater" came out.
"World Eater" based only on the black stroke in the sky that became an eagle. 24x48 oil and wax on mounted linen.
This one will grow a lot over the next week.

New Painting to Ponder

I have been preparing for a new show in June at Paul Schatz Furnishings and forcing myself to spend at least two full days in the studio. This is one of the results.

A Moment of Clarity

I often work well into the morning, quietly mixing wax and oil and applying it to large canvases. on Wednesday I was struggling with a 30x30 canvas that I had started painting on about three months ago. I had mixed up a too large amount of white. Looking at what I had started and realized it would never work, I started laying on the white wax and oil and the image became evident almost immediately. Who was it that said he just carved away anything that wasn't the object he was carving?
That is kind of what happened here.

New Print with New Blankets!!!

Today I got my new press blankets and put them on my press. The top blanket is the "pusher" and the thin blanket on the bottom is the "catcher" I have no idea what the middle one is called.
After running the blankets through the press 20 times and increasing pressure each time I was able to print this little gem.
I saw this image on Facebook from a friend, Kenny Helphand and used it to create this image.
