i painted this 1-27-2009. i painted over an old painting. i'm not sure where the idea came from. i just started putting paint on the canvas. after a bit, i poured myself a glass of wine. 24 by 36 inchs. oil on canvas.

this is another painting i did the same night 1-26-2009. oil on canvas 18 by 24 in. i love how slowly a painting becomes alive. color must stimulate the eye and fill it with energy.

i painted this 1-26-2009. this is part of my egyptian series. 16 by 20. oil on canvas. as you can see this paint is very wet by the reflection. now it's time to dry.

the illusion of rodin's mind.

taken in the auguste rodin museun in paris france sept. 2008. rodin was a famous french sculptor.

i painted this 1-22-2009 i took an older painting i didn't like and put it on my easel. i took a tube of paint and squeezed it onto the canvas and began to cover the older painting. in an hour or less i was done covering the older painting and this is what turned out. 26 by 36 inches. oil on canvas. maybe i will add to it, maybe it is done?

i spent the last week of 2008 and the first week of 2009 in egypt. i took many pictures of hieroglyphics. even though i don't know what they mean i find the artwork beautiful. all are just the color of stone. the paint has long faided away, but i was in some tombs that where so colorful it looked like they were painted yesterday. we weren't allowed to take pictures in the tombs. so my paintings, the color i make up in my mind. this is my first painting this year 2009. it is 16 by 24 in. oil on canvas. it is the first coat of paint so it needs to dry before i work it to completion. i will sell it for $300. i plan to paint many in this style. watch my blog from time to time for my latest works.
