Homo Erectus Skull (model)

I received the half=sized homo erectus skull from Bone Clones - it's absolutely beautiful.  I'm going to use it as a reference for an upcoming painting.

It looks so simian and yet also human.

I finished the preliminary drawing for Diomedes being devoured by his Horses.  The last horse on the right was difficult, and I had to redo it.  The drawing turned out nicely.  I looked at some paintings by George Stubbs to get some ideas for backgrounds.  I decided to use a scene that I photographed in northern Arizona, north of Sedona.

After all the frenzy of getting ready for the show that  is now hanging at Bert Green's, I feel like I'm starting fresh.  I even tidied up the studio.... there were a few dust elephants roaming around.

Here is a link to a review on my exhibit at Bert Green, recently published in LA City Beat:  Barbie and Other Montrosities.

Ron Garmon, the critic, interviewed me on the phone and had me in stitches - what a sense of humor!


I'm trying out this new blogging site to see how it works out.  In the meantime, I'll keep up the postings on my Mac account too.
