Things Are Exactly As They Appear, 2014, acrylic on canvas

I’ll have the soup, please.

I did have some good news over the weekend…together with the usual, “we encourage you to seek representation elsewhere…” I received notice that all three pieces that I submitted are to be published in the 2018 Clamor Arts & Literary Journal (University of Washington at Bothell.) How many pieces have I had published now? Must be something like a dozen – wow.

I think, as a painter, you know you’re work is done when you lose interest…

Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size.  Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it?  It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations.  Geeze.  It is done – but now I think his head is too big!  ha!
