"07-28-2008 (Tasty As A Mango)"

Here's the full image of my newest painting. The color reminds me of a tasty Mango, hence the subtitle of the painting. This is part of a new group of paintings I am working on that are quite small. This painting is only 10" X 18" Tall. Which is incredibly small for my work. I didn't really think it would work well with my style of painting because i've not worked in a smaller scale for almost 9 years or so. But in it's small size, the scale of it is huge. The color is very bright and hot and jumps out from the gray ground of the painting.

I'm looking forward to making a number of these. It should be interesting to see how they come out.

Here's an image of the painting on my painting wall.

Very close up of the wood filler. Click on the image and you can see it even more close up.

Another close up.

Larger image of the bottom of the canvas, so you can check out the details in the paintwork on the canvas.

Thanks for looking.

Untitled Diptych 2000 (5X6-feet)

This is one of my favorite paintings I have made. My first Diptych that was in two pieces each 5 ft tall by 3 ft wide. It has had a deep affect on me since I completed it. I hope to eventually make another version of it in the same dimensions.

As always A/WF/C

Four in the Afternoon 2000 (6 X 5 Feet)

This is the largest 1 piece painting I have made so far. It has quite a quiet quality to it, very solemn and contemplative.

As always. Acrylic/Wood Filler/Canvas

Previous Jobs I have had....

These are in progress photos taken by my friend Garth Stanley back in July 2000. I had originally made this painting to be Green on top of a white ground. Alas it didn't turn out that way and now when you look at it. It has visions of blood and gaping wounds...but also at the same time it give you visions of flowers blooming. So it is death and birth all in the same painting. What I always love to call a beautiful accident. They usually make for my favorite paintings.

My progress on "A Cleansing" July 2000

Notice the hair. Yes I had quite long hair back then. It was a bit on the difficult side to take care of. I figured I had the hair for over ten years, so i'd go with having short hair for another 10 and then go back to the long...I might break that promise to myself.
