Recently, I had the opportunity to re-photograph this painting from 2001. It is called Go On: Hermit, and is approximately 12″ x 10″.There are many themes persistent in my work which had their genesis in this particular painting. I hope that you enjoy being able to see it in greater detail and clarity than has been available previously.
Those of you who are regular visitors know I have been slowly overhauling the pages here at The School of the Transfer of Energy. If you are new, know you know too. There are still some pages to rebuild, but for the latest, please take a few moments to visit the new Painting page. This has been perhaps the most personally interesting page to remake. Seeing so many of my paintings re ordered and in a fresh context has been revealing. Below are a few samples. I hope you enjoy them, and thank you for visiting. -Jack
