Painting Update

I feel like I'm ready to start edging away from only painting movie scenes, so here are some of my more recent experiments in acrylic funtimes.

"Great Job!"
(for Tim!)
The heads come from the main characters in the television program "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job." The bodies were chosen because they are my friend's favorite animals.

"The Past is a Grotesque Animal"
(for Will!)
This is based on one of my favorite Of Montreal songs, specifically the lyrics "But you know, no matter where we are / we're always touching by underground wires"

"The Doors of Perception"
(for Augusta!)
Inspired by the William Blake quote ""If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite." It really amazes me that an 18th century poet could make such accurate observations about neuroscience and physics. A man ahead of his time. 

(for Cyndi!)
A nice depiction of our warm, delicious chemical dependence.

"The Tree of Life"
(for Mike!)
Reinterpreting the work of Gustav Klimt. It needed a swing.
