Last Supper mural

God help me, I have been told to make one while cutting the lawn Gran Torino style. Not sure who it was, but message was clear, just do it. Drew up a rough draft Friday, then three days drawing it out 30"x90" as a study.
Think and feel early Christian, Orthodox,Coptic A Russian rural art filtered through early Modernism of Gauguin, Kandinsky and Matisse. A primitivism to create energy and light, as much joyous and living as sad and death filled, movement in a pseudo naive style.
God help me. I shall succeed, Inshallah. Will be posting stages of development.

Final study for Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels huge raw sienna entry wall.

My fan club

How cool is that? One is known by ones enemies as much as by ones friends.
Consider the source, looks like I am doing pretty good. LMAO!
Art collegia delenda est! Proven once again.

Banned in LA

Recently while blogging I have been criticized by those who claim I have never been "solicited"(interesting term, as to pimping) by any LA galleries. I forgot all about this one, as I have only attempted at three as we are a rather superficial and adolescent bunch. One was told it was closed to new artists, as there is a divide between old money and its focus on closed artwork for investment purposes, "Masters" only, meaning dead.

Another which was reopening after carrying Modern art decades earlier, but now turned into contempt art as there isn't much else in LA, told me to go to Frisco or Portland. I don't fit in here. No shit.
LA is for the nouveau riche, agents, studio heads and real estate robber barons..

The third was LA Artcore in fall 2008. Lydia Takeshita, the founder and head, immediately bought several photos I had, and put me down for a two man show of "untrained' artists in May of 2010. She vehemently promised me and showed me where she had me scheduled. As I don't care for much they show at either of their two sites, in front of MoCA and at the Brewery, I hadn't gone in a year. I looked at their 2010 schedule to contact about what works to bring, and was told I wasn't scheduled and we had been replaced by two Asian girls with rice paper works. How stereotypical and original is that.

In other words, I have been banned in LA.
Thank you, I cant think of much better cred than that.


Can you think of anything more hypocritical? But then it is the Academic/Museo/Gallery complex of investment for the nouveau riche and their parties. Political Correctness is its cover and muzzle. We can't have the search for Truth creep into the "discussion" now can we. I have been banned for blogging my opposition to the soulless, sexless, sensually and mentally deprived artscene. Where frontin pseudo intellectual nonsense and voyuerism of games, toys and therapy is the goal. Decadence.

The product of the Age of Meism and Excess.
That age is over.

Creating the Creation Triptych

Final Creation Triptych

Foundation Harmony   First chord
                                 Initial Rhythm and Harmonic Modulation
Drawings for new triptych, Creation. Using old painting of my avatar on left, middle is slightly too large, right needs to be slightly larger. Woman red-deep yellow with violet undercoatings, Man green-light yellow with blue, and center Creation white center to deep yellow gradation edges and orange undercoating,
Outside cornice cobalt violet, blue and orange on burnt umber, raw umber and Van Dyke brown.Rhythmic bodies burnt sienna and light to deep yellow wings And raw, burnt sienna and van dyke in middle.

Almost done, but switched the cobalt blue to cerulean, wish I had undercoated it as well. Made some changes, perhaps this weekend,

Final Harmony, rhythm to complete next.
