rites of passage


6"x6" oil
the sketch


the tools


24"x24" oil/canvas
The finished product. One of my greatest lessons in life has been to let myself look like a fool. Show your total bombs. Talk like an idiot. Be crazy. You'll be rewarded, I promise...............

I toast to you and your transparency. Blogs, to me, are about process, ideas, thoughts.. or as you say looking foolish sometimes... as we do in life.
Websites, galleries are about finished work, product.

LOVE these rites of passage. You are on a roll.

Your compositions may be 'explosive' --but they're not bombs! Very bold! I like where you're going.
