"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.

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!

Every Picture Tells a Story

This painting is very busy, unlike many of mine, but it tells stories and I am enjoying working on it.

It will be at Valley River Inn this week.
