Paint the Halls

Watching people and making drawings on the walls of the hospital, I guess that place is torn down now.

Large Japanese inspired folio

Boy, this was a pain to scan. The paper is 100 years old, I picked up this leather bound workbook in New Brunswick like a million years ago- wait obviously less than a million years ago as the book is only 100 years ago, I got it in 1997. Anyhoo, with the leather spine recently broken, time to use it for painting. It worked well too as I painted little sections at home on double paged sheets and then glued them together after. This painting is in part inspired by the Japanese series of woodcuts that show images of the heroic japanese Soldier saving a baby. As a dad, I guess the images struck a cord.
