Detail: The Descent


Though the photo is rather blurry and the resolution dark, the photo isolates an incident of molestation of a child in a theater. The scene, along with the others in the panel, was later embellished with gold leaf, and a title banner was added from the Abbey Road album. In this case, "I want you (she's so heavy)". The verse, "1-2-3-4 all good children go to heaven" repeats throughout the panel in the margins of the scenes.

Have no fear...

This painting is entitled, "The Dream" - Sorry, I do not have a better photo of it and it is in a private collection. I painted it several years ago. The seraph holds a banner which reads, "Have no fear..." in Spanish.

The Holy Face


I painted this around the time the Passion of the Christ came out. I had been working at the time and felt I had enough of an income, so I decided I didn't need to sell all of my paintings. I gave it away. The person who received it also gave it away. I learned two things from this. First, do not imagine people will appreciate a particular work or even want it. Secondly, people really do have a greater appreciation for an object if it cost them something. (It is a rather grizzly image - the photo doesn't help either.)

Iconostasis


I painted these panels in 1991 for an eccentric antique dealer who had them mounted on his kitchen cabinet doors.
