You're All I Want - T-Shirt

I made a shirt design back in 2012 based on Psalms 73:24-25 from "Psalms: Poetry on Fire" (The Passion Translation). Since then, this design has been sitting there, yearning to get on a shirt. Why not scoop it up? People read shirts and it might be one of the few bits of hope their eyes feast on all day.

My boys are fairly clever, spending time creating this "memes" work from a hotel lobby sculpture.

Old Paintings Emerge

I went through the attic and dug out some old paintings to hang. Most of them are on loose canvas, pulled from wooden stretchers to re-use the stretcher again. After a while, I rolled them up again, but it was fun to bring out and think about these works painted over ten years ago.

I created this acrylic on canvas painting while in my Shockoe Bottom studio, which was a cheap space without windows and prone to dampness. I had a space to keep messy and no need to clean up, but the paintings reflected the space.
This oil on canvas was huge and created while finishing my my arts degree at VCU. When working in that space, I tended to create oversize work and use oils, since it was an easy space be messy, to clean up, and leave work to dry.
I guess this is another "cave studio" painting. I don't remember, but it is acrylic on artificial canvas. It was never finished, but appreciated the roughness of the work.
