Surrender is available!

Part of my Tall Tales, or Tall Paintings series, this nautical themed tallie is available for purchase.  This painting was originally painted in 2008, but has been reworked just recently. The orange starfish have reflective glass beads on the surface. Tall Paintings are meant to evoke: dreams, posters on telephone poles, a teenager’s bedroom, a film strip, all incomplete parts or fragments of someone’s story, snippets of visual poems.

measurement is approximately 36″ x 10″
oil on panel, with frame

Waterloo Sunsets

Saturday, June 18th, 2016
Speaking of Belgium … today is the 201st anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo (thanks Denali, for the reminder).
This lovely gouache, espresso, charcoal & graphite portrait is of Albert Dieudonné who played Napoleon in the 1927 epic 330 minute French silent film, Napoléon, which was directed by Abel Gance. I saw the first half of this film in my teenage years at Cinema 21. Also included in this series: Johnny Cash, Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Joe Strummer & the incomparable Mark E. Smith.
Comes in a “temporary” frame.

banner-os-1I’m mostly recovered from a successful Open Studio Weekend, but believe it or not, there are still some paintings left! In the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a smattering of the “available” works.

If anyone wasn’t able to make the weekend (who really wanted to) feel free to message me to set up a time for your own personal viewing, OR perhaps you’re still thinking about “that” piece & want to take a second look? I’m also happy to ship to out-of-towners, who don’t live here in Portland.

The work will be up & out for a while, before it all gets packed away.

… maybe you would like to arrange for a year long rental of a larger work? Something we’re considering.

Wha’d’ya think?
