Some new stuff

Howdy. I have some new work. Wanna hear about them? Sure you do. Also, I need your help. Scroll.


Caddy Shack. 48x48. This one reminds me of a 1950's style illustration of a big city. I named it Caddy Shack because it was the suggestion for another painting (Golf Pants) and I liked it. Confession: I have never seen Caddy Shack.


Dorsal. 36x48. I should have named it Shark Bite. Right?! I mean its all calm waters and blood, now that I look at it. This is one of those pieces with so many layers, about 12, that you should hang it someplace where you can see it close up, like over a desk.


Xx. 48x60. I named this one after the Xx, cuz that is what I was listening to when I painted it. I was feeling very free and light. This is actually two paintings. I started something at home. I hated it. I covered it in red paint. Hated it. Then decided to just layer like a mo fo until I was happy. There is a lot of paint here. Its like when you wake up in the middle of the night, and you just have hold of your dream but you want to go back there, so you start trying to carve it out in your mind and you end up lucid dreaming. Then next thing you know you are a belt designer and you have to figure out how to cast resin...does that happen to you?


What should I name this one?
I just finished this blue piece yesterday and put an image on Instagram. What would you name it? Quick, first thing that comes to your head. If it helps you at all, this is a 36x36 size. Go.

  5. I had a late start on Caddy Shack too, now I think it's hysterical, and see that Kevin Nealon in Happy Gilmore was ripping off the adorable Chevy Chase in this movie. And my hubby makes me watch too much golf lately...so fitting!

    Not the belt designer cast resin issue, but I lucid dream every once in awhile too. I learned to do it as a kid when I had a scary dream, realized I was dreaming and remembered a Smurf Episode when Brainy Smurf lucid dreamt to get away from Gargamel! ahahahah. True story!

  10. I totally thought whales/ walruses first too!
    How about whalerus? I think it says " I'm a nautically introspective painting with as much ability to make you smile as ponder the deep.
    Just a thought
