Oldies but Goodies

I am often surprised at my reaction to my own work. I paint every day and often take work that was stuffed into the storage room and rethink it. I may have to bring it out for the show. It will be finished. 
Such was the case with this one a few months ago, but I think I put it back in storage.
This one resides at ShelterCare in Eugene. It seems to be a favourite among both clients and staff.
Personally, I would take a toke and THEN look at it.

These were painted for the same show at the Coos At Musem. 26 paintings that were done in a panic (long story) were about Vessels,
Tea Bowl
they named the show "Transported", which I thought to be quite an appropriate title.

I died in a train wreck when I was 16 and twice more in a VA hospital in "94 and I have always considered the body as a mear vessel for the soul, energy, and intellect. These paintings were energized by the need to tell that story.
