Oil on Canvas, 8″ x 8″.


The Voice in Vernie’s Head


It’s true that I frequently don’t know what I’m painting, at least not in the beginning. Sometimes the imagery becomes clear long before the title and finding a title is a struggle. Sometimes the title pops into my head fairly early in the painting process. I was listening to the Blind Melon songs “Vernie,” and “Mouthful of Cavities” over and over while I was painting this one.

Oil and gold leaf on canvas, 12″ x 12″.




Not that it has anything to do with goats or gold leaf, but I am happy, relieved and proud of my country.
