Painting: High Colonel-ic

Click for bigger.

Above is a picture I made in 1995. It's 18"x24" and is a reverse painting on glass. It's a difficult technique,  but the end result –so flat! So clean!– makes it worthwhile.

I haven't made one of these in a long time. I used to show them in San Diego and Los Angeles, doing mostly coffee shop shows in the former and being included in group shows in the latter. It was fun for a while, but I ended up being more comfortable "behind the scenes" in the art world.

Never say never, though; those greyhounds are a powerful pull!

Did you ever get a copyright infringement letter from some snotty lawyer? Do you know if anyone ever went after Warhol for the same thing?

1. No, of course not.
2. Yes, for his flower paintings.
