A few weeks ago I got bored with straightforward portraiture and started distorting the figure. Alex, Signe, Lucy, and now Christopher have been portrayed with oversized heads and small bodies. None of these paintings is finished yet, however. Christopher's western scene will get a cowhide background, and various oversized insects will be added to all the paintings. I've fallen behind in these tasks because of preparing for the Firehouse show, but hope to find time soon to add spiders to Alex, moths to Signe, centipeded to Lucy, and scorpions to Christopher.
