This One is Slowly Growing

"Dear Earth creatures, plants, and that other thing, We have enjoyed
 watching, helping, and sometimes hindering your progress for these last 2.5 million years but, there is always a but, we have concluded that you neither have the intellect (evidenced by you choices of leaders) nor the drive to succeed so we will not be making formal contact and will be gone within the year.
We just want to thank you so much for the entertainment.
You are on your own now. Good luck!"
30x60 oil and mixed media on panel.



Then last night I had another.

"Sometimes You Have to Ask" ,New painting

I have been working hard to break out of my linear methods of painting and dance a bit with color and shape relationships.
This one is 40x40 inches. Using pastel and graphite first then oil paint, then oil and cold wax in layers, I built this one. and cold wax in layers, I built this.
Last Night I decided to change things a bit.

Have You Ever Obsessed About Perspective?

This one has been very controversial due to the obvious sexuality of the clouds.
Detail bellow (NC-17)
"With My Head in the Clouds, I drive off the Cliffs of Moher"


This one was a mental walk from Iceland through Switzerland to the canyon below Fau de Iguazu, then back to the Columbia Gorge.
It's not done yet but getting close.




This is the detail from the nasty picture above.

"The Artist at Fifty-Three"

This is a woodblock self-portrait I did just after my 53rd birthday. Perhaps a bit mid-life-crisisey? I bought some watercolour brush pens from a company called ARTEZA and printed this the other day and started painting with them. Great fun!
