“Only Ed Bishop Can Save Me”

40″ x 60″, Mixed Media, Glitter, Paint, Junk, English Magazines, Digital Prints, Watercolor paper.

I took a long vacation from my larger paintings and now I have returned.  It feel real good to be back.  The stories have more room to stretch out (visually and intellectually).

The piece is a throw back to my childhood with the reference to the one and only Ed Bishop. I have thought long and hard about the use of memory in my work and find it is staring to dominate the way I paint.

Memory of images and memory of thoughts.  Each time I repeat a memory it changes.  The painting I hope encapsulates these thoughts and those moments.

I realize the only way forward is to look backwards.
