It seems like forever and a day since I last posted one of my paintings, so here is my latest. I was playing with elements of trompe l’oeil in this piece, whose subject is the skull of a scimitar-horned oryx (remember those?) hanging in the ranch house in Texas. Ah, Texas, how I miss your tacos and your sunshine.
I am also delighted to announce that this (yet untitled) piece has already sold, but that I am considering making prints available for sale, of this and other works. Good idea? Bad idea?
This will at least give me an excuse to have many of my pieces professionally scanned or photographed, which will be a welcome relief. Hopefully then I can stop cringing every time I see the havoc digital transfer has wrecked on the subtler colors. The highlights look especially garish here. Ugh.
Lastly, for those of you that have made it through all that scrolling (sorry), I am thrilled to say that Saturday will find me here. More on that anon.
