I enjoy the reductiveness of your painting application. I have also toyed around with it alot.

Great piece, and keep up the struggle of painting with paint.

Hi Joel, thank you, do you have a website, or some other means that I could see your work?

Hi Steve, it's oil. If you are interested in seeing it let me know - I'm always happy to have folks visit my studio. Other folks' insight is always valuable.

My web site is my name,

I am an old ccs graduate, and I am now living and painting in chicago. But detroit is always a part of my make-up as a creative thinker and figurative painter.

Finding a painting evolve from the canvas is truely remarkable.
Look forward to hearing from you, joel

Wow, have you seen Pat Underdown's recent work? Your's and hers' works are so similar. She's an illustration instructor at CCS. Look her up, or I can send you some images if you want.

Pat and I where in the same classes for a while. I know her pretty well I guess, where is she showing?
How might I get a link to some of her new work?

it's all falling apart and it's coming for you. +me.
abstract expressionism
emerging from a cloud
a horse head, and a rack of meat with tentacles n'stuff.
is very strange and i wonder where it came from. you had show at cass cafe in the last couple years, no? i don't remember seeing any animal-thingees in those works, where'd this one come from?

Hi LL,

yep, I had a show with Harlan Lovestone and Taurus Burns...that was fun, and a cool place - cass cafe. The skull comes from having my drawing students work from skulls every semester. Imagery changes alot... materials too, but it's always primarily painting/drawing - or flat mixed media stuff... thanks!

i predict that there will be a ton of defense for this work in a minute, you know, like the point is to create a conversation and how can it be so bad if there's so much talk about it . does this all sound familiar?
