Heres a new painting. This is my father from a photo in the early eighties. I did this for my mother for christmas and although really emotional she loved it. Drawing this for me too was very emotional but once I got the drawing down I flew throught the painting in about 6 hours (2 sessions). Painting is always an amazing process when it flows like this one did. I think its really just a matter of getting out of your own way. Hope you all like it.

New Painitng

A new painting of a friend of mine Chaz Obrien.
Acrylic on canvas 18"x24"


My father passed away on7/8/09. It has been an up and down past few months intellectually, emotionally and creatively. I have some new ideas for my personal art, not that any art I make isnt personal but I mean more in terms of my non-commercial work. I hope to be doing lots of new work this upcoming year in 2010. Its a landmark year and I think I want to contribute.
Heres a collage I made for my dad. I took this to burning man this year and burned it in effigy at the temple along with so many others who found some comfort in their loss by doing the same.

inspired by my pa:

Raised in the watery breath of the soil.
Humid labor.
The strength of those that worked this land so that we all may thrive.

Much love and por vida.
