and now for something completely different …

Object Of Desire

30″ x 42″ pastel and Flashe’

It’s been difficult to get much painting done lately so I’m posting this one from my angst addled youth.

This was done in the 1980s using pastel and a vinyl based paint called flashe on paper. I liked working this way but I hated framing and storing the work. I still have a few of these and they get dusty and moldy unless they’re under glass.

The imagery I was creating was pretty er .. strong and I was always surprised when one sold. They’re very personal and I’m fond of them partly because they reflect what I was going through at the time but I’m not sure I’d want to live with them.

  1. It’s amazing what we make when we’re younger: very raw and truthful. I made things in my teenage years I’m not sure I have the guts to create now. It takes guts for you to show this, too. Dare I ask what it means?

  2. Hi Ambera, You had to ask … I became infatuated with a woman I shouldn’t have which set off an examination of sexual attraction and obsession with things we think we want.
