Dining Table Landscape, oil, 48"x32", 2014
This is a re-work of a painting I did last year. That painting was headed for the dumpster but then I thought, wait a second…I should just go apeshit on this thing - scatter some random things I find visually pleasing without over-analyzing why and if it totally sucks then it was headed to a landfill anyway. And that's what I did and it turns out I don't want to throw it in the garbage anymore.

Capercaillie, oil, 36"x24", 2014
The night after completing the Dining Table Landscape I thought, hey…I want to do that "re-working of an old painting that belongs in a trash heap" thing again. And so I did.
