To morrow

To morrow
Digital print on aluminum
40" x 24"

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To morrow, and to morrow, and to morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle,
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by and idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

This sounds like the sort of thing a Scottish king from long ago would say who’s just been told his wife is dead and is having issues with a forest moving towards his castle while some guy who was untimely ripped from his mother’s womb wants to kill him. In fact, pretty much everyone in Scotland wants to kill him. No wonder he’s talkin’ crazy. But, crazy or not, those Scottish king guys sure are eloquent.

Iglesia San Jose
20" x 16"
Digital print from original oil painting

Iglesia San Jose is located in Los Cerrillos, New Mexico, a small village 30 minutes southwest of Santa Fe, that used to be a thriving town of miners with 21 saloons and four hotels. Now it's a semi-ghost town with a small residential population and a dusty, barely-open bar named Mary's Bar. And a Catholic church, Iglesia San Jose (St. Joseph’s Church).

Several movies have been filmed in Los Cerrillos (The Small Hills), including Young Guns and Vampires.

Fish Out of Water

A Fish Out of Water
24" x 30"
Digital print on aluminum

I stumbled across a black & white ink drawing that I had done years ago and decided to add color and turn it into a metal print. This was before I started attending regular life drawing sessions, therefore the figure isn't very realistic. Some might say it’s cartoonish. I prefer to call it Graphic Surrealism. That’s because cartoons are inexpensive, but Graphic Surrealism is very expensive. Especially on aluminum.
