The work so far

For my own amusement I wanted to see some of the work I've done so far for my visual essay, "A god in the hearth" all together. The first iteration of this project centered exclusively on fire and was on display at Attic Gallery in September of 2014. The first version of it to include the engine and coal plant paintings will be shown at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon next February (2016). It will also include three more monumental paintings, one of the coal plant at Boardman, hopefully one of the coal mining operation in the Powder River Basin of Montana and Wyoming where the plant's coal comes from, and one of a satellite image of earth at night. And more small studies and diptychs like these.
