People ask about the brush I used in a particular Instagram Story. Folks get excited, then it seems incredibly important to me. Where is that brush have I lost it or did I accidentally throw it out? Was that brush the reason that painting worked? Can a paint anymore without said brush? Seeming doubtful now…
A strange life driven to create. My motives are pure, I continue my work. Grumpy old man… I may well be.
One of my favorite pieces, painted in late December of 2018. It started me down an exciting path of exploration. I keep myself open to ideas and am willing to pursue imagery that is compelling to me even if I know it is unlikely to be popular. The Harbinger is currently on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. They have a nice little collection of my work so stop in if you are on the Oregon Coast.
This painting shares its title with the ongoing series. It is such a bloom, I just couldn’t help it! The piece is probably my favorite to date in the series. These paintings are a bit hypnotic, I find myself lost in thought staring into them.
