Here is the actual painted version, as opposed to the manipulated version (as seen in the previous post):

Time's Dream (digital version)

This is a new painting I did today. By the time I got around to taking a photo, it had gotten dark outside, so I tried to take a photo of the piece on the kitchen floor. Unfortunately, under the artificial lights, the photo didn't come out very well. I could have discarded the images, but instead decided to manipulate the least blurry photo in Photoshop to see if anything could be salvaged or even altered in an interesting way. This is the result...I think it's worth posting here & I will take a better photo tomorrow. In daylight.

The Book of Creation

I'm not even sure what The Book of Creation is yet, whether it is a book or something else entirely. However, it's an idea that's been germinating for a while, so here are a couple of pieces that may be in it, whatever it may be.

Second piece on gatorboard

Below is my second (finished) piece on the gatorboard surface, The Mask of Morpheus. This is more of a monochrome painting (done over an ink & brush drawing, which can be seen underneath here & there). I am liking this as a surface to work on & am thinking of moving up in scale a little...

Hawkish Old Man

This is an ink & brush drawing done on gatorboard, a kind of very sturdy foamcore that resists bending & warping. It has a useful cardboard-sepia colored covering that I tend to favor. I think I may be using more of this material to work on...we'll see...
