Barbarians pt. 4 (Collaborative Painting)

Barbarians Collaboration

Last week Beastlore artist Matthew Pugnetti came over and we spent half a day painting. Here is a photo of the results, unfinished. Note the tea cup in hand. True Barbarians drink tea. Green tea. Sometime this summer we are hoping to show this piece, his Barbarian paintings, and all of my Barbarian paintings. Several other collaborations in the works.

I'm back listening to all my old Return to Forever albums.
Here's a great performance of Vulcan Worlds from 1974:

And the Barbarian of dance, Junior, came up in conversation last week.
Here is one of my favorite battles, featuring Ronnie :

Barbarians pt. 1




Here is the first posting of paintings from the Barbarians Series.
I've been working larger, on canvas and also on mounted paper (ripping off the backing once enough layers have been built up). I'll be posting more soon.

And here is an old demo I did at Meridian Gallery.
After months of sitting in the basement at the Gallery, I thought I'd give it some light. Its about to be painted over.

I've just finished a long overdue update of my website. Check the paintings and murals sections for new images.

Barbarians are on my mind right now. Thanks to conversations with Matthew Puggnetti (Beastlore) I am working on a large series of paintings right now inspired by...

The Scythians: Wiki Scythians
The Afghanistan show: Trailer
This article (The Onion): Things Just Taste Better Out of A Skull
The paintings of Skinner (Thanks to Balmer):
Ancient Ireland drawings by J Tamaki: Irish Museums Pt 1

Also amazing, but not related to Barbarians...
God's Femur by Ward Schumaker: God's Femur
The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp (Here's the first chapter online): Chapter 1
