A painting of Jonah and the Gourd Vine, from 1999, painted on a mdf panel with mahogany veneer. Done while I was still in school, I had previously omitted it from the archives on this blog. It is in the same line of the paintings I am now doing- and have been doing since around 1999, so it now seems appropriate to add this and a few others from the last few semesters of my schooling to the paintings archive page.
