The Creature lives….!!!1!

I am furiously finishing up my contribution to my upcoming group show in California - HORRORWOOD!  Just in time for Halloween, a horror movie themed show approaches Culver City.  Doom is in the air!

My contribution will be a diptych about the gill-man known as the Creature from the Black Lagoon.  My Creature will inhabit two worlds: the swamp and the amazon.  He’s a mirror on the monster that humanity can be and his worlds show the monsters that are.

Here’s a little preview of the in-progress work:

So, I wanted to wait a while before posting about this painting.  I think these early images of the painting are interesting enough to share.  I’ve had a lot of challenges and fun with this piece.  I’ll wait a little to post more - so just consider this a small preview of the general direction of the painting.

I’ll post the finished piece just before it goes off to California.  I hope you check back to see it!
