  1. Fantastic painting as your mythology continues. Walking Man is going into the whale or across his mouth? The whale’s wild white hair (!) (whiskers hair?) looks like a detail in a swirling Persian miniature. Love the detailed shots of working space and materials. Such a vibrant active feel to it all.

    • Thank you, Steven. Jonah and Walking Man have been intertwined pretty much since Walking Man’s inception over 14 years ago. This painting is me wrestling with that kinship. Kind of a cosmic whale (he’s been around awhile to- but I am learning more about him these days).

  2. What great studio shots! I love this painting already and can’t wait to see it as it develops. Jonah and the whale is such a powerful story and imagery. Love that medium shot! Wish I could stop by for a visit, my friend.

    • I knew you would like that jar of gold. I pretty much took the picture for you, Mikey!

      • I love it– thanks for taking a picture of it. Liquid gold! The slow moving kind.

      • I have had this jar (among others) going for about 10 years. I add small amounts of the formula in proportional amounts- the older stuff is nicely polymerized and thick like honey. -a whole different animal than I could achieve making it straight off.
