Dodo or Dodon't?

The Raphus Cucullatus Nebula, 38" by 28", oil on canvas, 2017
This is another work in the series of paintings of mine that start from the fractured image/collage source. One of the things that I'm liking about this process of starting from collage is that through free-association, I can begin to develop meaning in the painting as I work. One image leads me to another thought which is countered by a thought conjured from the image next to it. This piece became about memory and dead or dying dreams. I really like how loose the brushwork is in this piece which is something I want to push more as well.
