“Rooster” 44″x66″, oil on canvas, 2011-2014; on display at Chicago Diner: Logan Square 8/22 – 9/22
This is a painting of a puffin at a bar. From the rust belt, he’s tired of being something he’s not. This piece is a work in progress. The piece measures 2’x3’; mediums used are charcoal and oil paint, and the canvas is Blick Premier (1 3/8” profile stretcher).The piece is pretty calm and meditative, and will continue to progress in this direction.
I like the simplicity of this piece. It is a bit of a mashup of two other pieces: “Rooster” (2011-2014), and “Barfly” (2002)
This piece is titled “Preening (In the Loop)”, it is oil on canvas and measures 24″x36″. It is currently on display at the Logan Square Chicago Diner if you’d like to see it in person and get some rad vegan food between now and September 22.
