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.

Jonah has been coming up a lot lately. I thought I would share a photo of this big painting which I have been working on over the past 5 years.

This grisaille (grayscale underpainting) of the interaction of Thomas and Jesus and the gathered disciples and their community, has been slowly developing over the past three years, the drawing took about two years before that. I feel like the end of this particular phase is finally in sight on the distant horizon. I look forward to seeing the structure fully unfold and ultimately to the beginning the glazing of colors.

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.
