If I had a hammer

11"x14" oil

I should reiterate. All this recent stuff is from imagination. I'm digging into my unconscious. I remember and use the laws to a point. I just scrub in paint until I think I see an image. Then build on it. This work could easily be discarded but I feel it's critical towards developement. The balance of expression and representation is most intriguing. I figure one must explore their imagination and take what is learned towards what one sees. In the end, I suspect the laws must go. This is with the goal of individuation of course.

6x6 oil

A complete flop. I see this cathedral from my studio everyday. I've painted it twenty times at least. Figured I'd dig it out of my skull. I can't win. I'm not Catholic the Cathedral is......................

I've decided to include clips of influential musicians to the posts. Play the clip and view the work. These are all artists that I feel have an expressiveness that I try to get into my work.

I love the combination of these video clips and your paintings of your subconscious landscape. It's a magical mystery trip.
