It's been almost exactly one year since we've moved from Ktown and my upstairs studio; hence one year since painting. This was the final piece in my "Tales of the Sea and Other Forms of Child Endangerment". It started out as a piece for a Gallery 1988 show, depicting a scene from Jim Jarmusch's DEADMAN. Needless to say, it sucked and I ended up doing a PeeWee Herman painting instead. Eventually I came back to it and painted this image over top of my debacle. I usually give up such endeavors due to overworking the canvas. This was the first time I was okay with the result--even if it is a little more than heavy handed with visual metaphors.
