So for the time being I'm calling the current body of work American Youth. The toy collection is piling up around the homestead forming odd vignettes...in a good way. I'm working on a 2nd painting which is focused on toy battles in the air. The 1st one (robo/dino/cowboy/indian work) is on land and the 3rd will be at sea. Self portraits and mega traditional still lives filled with cap guns, baby toys, and what not are dancing through my head.
