Apple Peeling

Apple Peeling, Oil on panel, 12 x 9

Here's an odd little one I recently finished. I say odd, because I don't always know why I paint certain things, and I actually sometimes like that they seem odd to me. Not weird, just slightly different than I intended.

Muddy Waters

I felt like putting this up, I haven't seen it in a little while. This was a piece I did a couple years ago, that was in a traveling exhibit and book (well the book didn't travel, I don't think), "The Greatest Album Covers That Never Were", which ended at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's a mixed media construction, of steel, wood (from an old picket fence) and the center image is Oil on a Wood Panel. 
When I bought the old picket fence (it was only about 6 feet long) at a swap meet, (and I don't know why he thought someone would buy it) he asked me, "What are you using it for?" When I said it was for an album cover I was making, he said, "Oh... for Wilson Pickett?"
Wish I'd thought of that.
