Moving on to something new.

“Still being Still,” is what I named the show that is currently hanging at HotCakes. So named because I seem to be drawn almost exclusively to still life painting as a subject. Something about the mass, composition and color excites me.

The finished piece, Cut Up.

Slogging Through

Light Weight, in progress
I have had this still life set up in the studio for longer than I care to admit. Fortunately, there isn’t anything that can spoil or rot, which are often subjects of my work. There is fire under my ass to finish this and move on. Get ’er done! Getting close.
