Classic Elements

This summer I pretty much used my vacation and weekends by preparing for a show with Mykl Wells, my favorite Tucson painter. I'm honored he considers me a peer. This is the second show that he's 'shared' with me, as he says "I just want to urge you to paint more," as he urges me to drink another beer.

I wanted to incorporate the figure somehow with developing druidic-sorcerer cyber-futurist themes. The elements seemed a nice safe place to start. The hand is my right hand and each piece is a suggestive sigil of power over that element. Then I realized I hadn't painted fire or close-up water before. Each took maybe four hours of experimentation until I hit the right brushes and techniques to make something believable.
