OK. Hell, yes. Let’s put this in here. I did this a few weeks ago, but for some reason haven’t posted it until now. An important painting for me for a number of reasons… among them being, my first truly large scale image incorporating Second Life imagery as its central element; a merging of the old style and the new, which I have referred to several times in the past. My last body of work was a bridge to the new work, but this is where it all begins to come together. Also, continuing to focus on the human figure by way of the avatar. Finally, hot and cool come together here; sparks are flying all over the place. This piece is titled nine and a half, partly in honor of Mickey Rourke, but mainly because it was the ninth work in the series, and the second version of it. Still love ya, Mickey.
