It's Interesting What a Few Years Can Do

I recently was hunting around through my old photographs in an unrelated search. In the process I found this baby:


It is the only photo I have of this painting. I made this piece in high school and then promptly gave it away, never to be seen by my eyes again. That was 17 or 18 years ago by now, and this was one of my first paintings, ever. It's an oil on canvas too...aw. I never even mess with oils anymore. But yeah, it seems I've always had an interest in figures, bodies, and hands.  Gotta love a good hand though. I've abstracted more than a bit too, over the years. It's still so bizarre of a concept for me, the whole thing is. I'm just amazed that that piece came out of me (and in the early 90's too, it could have been so much worse).

i always end up giving everything cool i make, and then never talk to the person again. i should just give them my SOUL and be done with it.
