Once in a while I see the work of a young artist and a bomb goes off in my head

resized 24 x 36 blue sunflower

  Once in a while I see the work of a young artist and a bomb goes off in my head— I mean that in a good way. Heather Murphy is one such artist. Her work reminds me of O’Keefe, with shades of Warhol. She can paint! But her painting has a freedom to it that’s stunning. I mean— what to make of an artist that paints rock star icons AND flowers, pop posters that could have been Pink Floyd album covers AND lyrical almost transparent studies of nature? Then there’s her humor. Look I’l … [Read more...]

My Heart Broke When I Stopped Painting So I Could Sell My Right Wing Jesus (It’s Fixed Now!)

When I was 17 the first painting I sold was to Mrs. David Rockefeller at my first art show. This was in New York City at the Frisch Gallery. Next came a show in Switzerland at the Chante Pierre Gallery in Aubonne (near Geneva) and a show in London soon after. Then I quit painting because there was more money and power and ego in selling Jesus. I was an idiot! I started painting again about 10 years ago. Here's some of the new work.(Tulips, Wind & Sun Oil on canvas 24 x 24, 2013) When I … [Read more...]
