I'm an introverted extrovert that doesn't eat alot.


all 6"x6" oils
So spent turkey day in studio and tweaking website. Wasted a lot of time on website. Studio was good. I'm trying to get "comfortable" with an uncomfortable style before I go large scale. I'm really starting to regain interest in wiping down, scraping and the like. Also, not premixing. A quick scrub of color on the white canvas is also providing a nice diving board. Now if I could just swim................


















This guy could dig a landscape out of the ether like no other. RIP Michael.Way too soon...

Your new very minimalist works get to the essence of things. I will be interested when you try it on a grander scale. Please let us know how it feels and your process. Happy Thanksgiving!

Be prepared -- wiping down and scraping a large canvas sounds like a marathon swim. Best you should have a sea-worthy craft like this pretty little sailboat nearby.

At least have a piece o pie.

Hey Sam. I'm prepared to drowned. In the dream world this is important. Glad you like the sailboat. Yes, Bill can sling the paint.

I was lucky enough to see Michael perform a week before he drove off the cliff. The dude's a legend. So many have tried to emulate him. They get the style but not the soul.
