Raw Stage

A new painting I'm titling "Schadenfreude". Yes, my titles end up on little banners in the paintings, but I don't find the redundancy stultifying, I find it funny. The bird on the right is a Dodo, and the hocks of meat come from my meat catalog a few posts back. The portrait is a grotesque doe-eyed variation on self-portrait. That's all for now. I like my raw stages.

New Painting: Better Materialists

These are studio shots of my newest piece just completed yesterday. I switched grounds which accounts for the change in surface and some of the jewel tone of the colors. I have just been looking for a great deal of time at these antique portraits and my "portraits" of food and deer trophies, it was high time they were drawn together.
