Enjoy the process (groan)

When an image
becomes a painting.
through the process of destroying the image.
Next step is to bring the image back in . . . and then it's time to move the panels around to really activate the painting.

Blood pumping
bass thumping
electric energy

slipping in and out of awareness
those cliched moments
when you feel as strong as the universe
and nothing can stop you

is this the truth
I didn't delve into those dark corners
and take those pills
but I would get swept up by the music
and the people
and the energy

Study for Burning

Here's a study I did for a fractured portrait I want to do.
Study for Burning, 16" by 16", oil on canvas, 2016

This one is very small and I think that when I get these shown in a gallery space, I'll hang these smaller ones as a counterpoint to the larger canvases. Might be a good contrast. These definitely are paintings that I want hung in a gallery space. I want the viewer to be in "gallery" frame of mind when viewing these works. Also if they are in "I want to see things that look like things" mode, that'd be great.
