HOW DO I COME UP WITH THIS STUFF?!
I don’t usually plan my work. It just kind of happens. The experience of making art is sometimes like watching my hands paint and draw. The meanings that people find in my work appear to come from a subconscious place. I never plan to paint a peanut with a suitcase, or a big chicken drinking coffee, for example. Even when I do intentionally repeat a theme or character in my work, something surprising always emerges in the finished piece.
Sometimes I’ll stare at a piece until the idea to add an object, an extension cord, crown, or suitcase, occurs to me. I used to believe that I was just adding these details to entertain myself, but listening to others talk about what the details mean to them, I realize that my work has several possible meanings, like an ink blot. The response to my work is a peek into the human psyche, both mine and anyone else’s who care to tell me what they see.

It was a BLAST! There were over 100 artists participating in the mural alone. I wish I’d have had time to go see more of the Festival. There were quite a few booths of art, (in addition to the 1…
Finished this pair of crackled chickens recently. Each is 16 × 20 in on a nice cradled Ampersand wood panel that is about 2 in. deep. I had done other very textural work on the panels but lost interest in them and never finished. That happens…sigh. Anyway, after sitting around for about a year they just needed to get used. It has been nice outside again, the kind of weather people go T…
ORIGINALS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE / Yay! It always feels good to complete a task that’s been following you around like an annoying little creature, poking you.

UPDATE June 23 2013 / The 2nd reception June 21 went very well, we had a large crowd again, and it was a few degrees cooler out, (under 110), too. I took this panoramic photo with my iphone. It captures many of the works and artists though not all. I like how the pano feature makes the walls curvy! / Show open through June! Last reception night for “Klown” is Friday 21 June, 2013! O…
