Good morning! Hope everyone had a fine weekend. I have a drawing for you today. It’s from the series entitled ‘The Periphery’. That whole series is about the search for God amongst the outposts. It’s also about sound: strange, echoing, underwater sounds. Could I be more vague? Probably. This is charcoal on paper. That’s straight-forward at least. Have a good one everybody!

Another “Confidence Man” painting. Actually, one of my personal favorites. It’s an updated version of the Crucifixion, obviously. Thought it fairly appropriate seeing that it’s Good Friday. What question does the Confidence Man ask? Well, I don’t know exactly, but I think it might have been something like why did You come here? The Man on the cross looks into his eyes and replies, to save you.
