Apocalypse Family

The North

I scored a little plot of land in Washington State. Here I am praying to the landowner to accept my offer. It’s a small lot in an agricultural town. I have chickens and goats for neighbors and the people are poor. That is perfect for me, to blend in as a hermit. The parcel has about 30 mature fruit trees on it, the scrolling plums are my future subject and the shadows of the seasons. There is a barn nearby with artist studios for rent. I want to take care of the trees and use the fruit to make jam.

Piles: 2020 Painter’s Research

I lost so much so fast I became preoccupied with arranging the pieces of my life in abstract orders to become subject material for my next group of paintings. Here is a look at my research for those of you interested in the artist’s process. Life hurt so much I needed to imagine painting it after I lived it in order to endure.

Never

A Ken Kesey kind of thing – Never – this cart carries my art supplies and can hold 2 of my projection screens. Some Catholics helped me build it, though – I wonder if they followed the 10 Commandments, it was SO expensive! The voile screen on the right swings out to 90 degrees. I’ll get this out into the wilderness with some projectors, a sound system and throw down post-modern like I do.

Terminal Uniqueness


My favorite 26 paintings printed for an exhibition in Garden City.
