United States
Out of West Texas, I paint, sell, and showcase colossal, depressed animal paintings better known as the Horn Lake series. Check on me in a year and see I've managed to move up in the world.
Interests
Ya'll are not going to believe this painting. 

One Story Tall. Two iconic Horn Lake Figures. All Madness. 

It has been weeks of painting. It's the longest I've ever spent on a piece, it's the largest painting I've ever done, and the animals are bigger than ever. Measured the Hollering Elk head at nearly 5 feet long. 

It's going to blow your fucking minds. It should be finished by this weekend. Keep a goddamn lookout.

You're obviously a talented artist, why do you paint the same creatures all the time? Non comprendo.

I figure it's just as much an obsession as those who slave over perfecting the human form, haha.

It's repetitive that way because I figure about ten of the them centered around the same idea creates a whole experience once I get them into a venue. DA, and the internet in general does a very poor job of representing this. They're entirely dependent on scale and emotion, which I can only fully communicate when someone is surrounded by them in person.

Actually I think i would be interested to see them in one gallery. It sort of allows the viewer to form a story in the mind when you look at it in sequence. :)

I know, I'm really sorry. I'm working on applications and commissions right now, and I figure everyone is waiting on all sorts of things from me. 

I assure you, it will be finished very, very soon, and it will be awesome, (I hope. People who've been around for the recording have been liking it more than my previous work.)

No need to feel pressured or anything, I know your work is worth waiting for.
Besides getting your personal life ordered and organized takes priority, it's normal.

After being away from DA for a couple years, it's been pretty neat coming back and seeing the evolution of your work. I admire your latest series.  Nicely done.
