This documents my work concentrating on the thoughts and images that are currently coming out of my studio.
This is the newest painting to come out of my studio.  Initially, it was intended to be the second part of a diptych with the painting of grouped horse-related items that I have yet to hammer down a name for.  This one is called My Paleontology Kit, including items that seem to fit the bill, but on closer inspection may not.  As a child, these items made perfect sense together, but now Jurassic Park toys combined with raccoon bones and fossils seems to be a little strange—similar to the horse painting that I posted earlier with a Breyer horse, My Little Pony and actual equestrian equipment. It doesn’t matter to a kid if its real or fake.
