The completion of a painting generally means a decision to stop working on it, otherwise the cycle would never end. This painting, which was begun in October of 2009 reached that generally unheralded milestone of “completion” this fall, 6 years later. Technically, the work is not entirely done, as I have yet to build the frame for it, which, especially for my panel paintings, represent a significant part of the presentation and outer composition. I hope share some of the meaning behind this painting at some future date.

That’s beautiful Jack! Hope to see that in person. I need to make it out for a visit soon.
That is a truly brilliant piece, my friend. I love how you brought the whale to completion.
Stunning. The sea monster is utterly luminous. The composition finely tuned.
Thank you, Matt. I appreciate your feedback.
