Painting + Art
I've always painted for as long as I can remember. My preferred medium is watercolor. I bought a Russian Water Color set about 30 years ago. St. Petersburg brand I think. It's hard to tell and just as difficult to replace, since it has only a debossed symbol on the case cover. They changed how I painted. They have so much pigment that it was a challenge to get soft muted colors. I also like using house/ sign paint for large graphic paintings as well. I'm preparing for a show this fall. I like surrealism and low brow art of California.
'You do not exist'
The current series I have been painting for 6 years is titled; "you do not exist". It's a world I created whereas Artificial Intelligence has prevailed on earth and there is no life. Nothing. Robots unearth an ancient data hard drive and this revelation has created a couple AI factions. As they decipher the data they realize humans were their god. So they start to piece together the past and begin to play with DNA to bring back humans centuries after extinction. But they really do not fully understand life. Mistakes are made and some AI groups create religions worshiping humans of the past, while their scientific counter parts start making life in labs with mixed results. This painting series is a witness to the events and comical outcomes of our future overlords.
This is an ongoing series of nature paintings with one slight oddity. Sometimes months after
The Overlord's Dream
This is in the painting series, 'You do not exist'.
