new work in two posts, pt.1

these were more experiments in subtitles . . . which are not finished yet. Each painting is 4"x5". They're all relatively small, but I've been working on them in layers. There are probably at least 8 layers of oil paint on there, with gesso and ink that makes about 10, and then I'm probably going to varnish them later, so all in all they'll each be about 2 inches thick when I'm done.
ok, that's an exaggeration, but it's a good one.

male and female

two new large-scale drawings I did in my backyard. (Sorry but the shadows in the yard made for lousy pictures.) I was playing with a mixture of ground charcoal, ink and water. They came out pretty decent, but there's a part of me that's moved on to other ideas. I might just keep doing more of these, but already I have an idea of what direction I want to go in with some oil paintings. It's hard to remember just to have fun with it, when you're still trying to figure out what "it" is.

also: chalk. and a dinky self-portrait.

new link

Just wanted to inform you that I added the website of Frank Relle to my links. Frank is a very nice guy who takes pictures of New Orleans and other such places. In the future, when people want to see what America looked like when there were no reality stars around, they will look for his work and go "Oh, they actually weren't all the same, were they?"
