Just finished a new painting and I had the audacity to give it a name in Spanish; if I screwed up blame it on Rosetta Stone.
So here it is : The Blue Devil and the Bull.
El Demonio Azul y el Toro
oil on canvas
16 by 20 inches
detail of blue devil
This is a small painting, I was playing about with visual language, notably how to treat a body of water. Still playing with barren environments and themes of loneliness and isolation. Living in the desert is a rich resource for that sort of mood. I have a few more small paintings nearing completion which I hope to post shortly. Also noodling within my head with what may be another very large painting. Perhaps one more large canvas before I leave this desert for good…
Have a happy Labor Day,
take care, namaste,
This just popped up on my Facebook feed, couldn’t help but to post it; yet another subliminal influence.
