We Reach

My goal was to take photos of my last painting after every session. I did for the most part. I think I missed only four or five sessions out of about twenty. My idea was that by documenting my painting process I could learn where things go wrong or where I kept going when I should have left well enough alone and called it finished. I didn't really learn anything, but with the help of Photostory 3 the pics set to music make a neat time lapse video.

Hey Jupiter

It's the same dream every night: our puny planet has somehow gotten off track and been sucked into Jupiter's gravitational pull. Helplessly, we orbit closer and closer until the stare of the looming red eye becomes too much to bear. Oh well, it's probably not gonna happen, but here's my latest painting...

"We Reach", 2009

28" x 24", oil on wood

This is the sixth time I've included our system's fifth planet in a painting and each time it seems to get a little bigger or closer. Below are the other five paintings.

Art at the Library

Try as I might I couldn't think of cute title for this post. Anyway, I've got some of my artwork on display at Fruitville Library here in Sarasota.
