This painting is part of my still life with figure(s) series. It is an exploration of objects and the human form. The panels in the background allow me to play with shapes and colors that are related to both the body and the object. It also allows me the create what is somewhat like a stage set for a Japanese Noh Drama.

Well there has been a bit of fucking off after the last painting. I just could not get back to work. But is was short. There were things that I had learned and they had to be processed I suppose, or perhaps the lazy side of me was in command. Anyhow I have been working recently and now have a painting nearing completion. In short, I am being a good boy.

I have not blogged for a while now. Actually I have been in New Orleans and Ocean Springs Mississippi. Lovely places both!
I left this painting un-finished and I guess it is still un-finished but closer to being done now. I have had a lot of thoughts about mastering my materials and lately about subject matter. My work tends to be focused on a personal world; an odd world, I confess but it is a look into a place in my mind. A lot of “important painters” are making political and / or social statments about the times we live in. I don’t seem to be able to go there, nor do I really want to. Is this selfish? Hummmm I don’t know.
