The Final 18 (more images to come later)

Here are the final 18 pieces which I finished last week

Series titled: Welcome to My Bedroom
Series Alternately Titled: Sentimentalist Explosion

All of these were made with a varied combination of latex, oils, and collage (pattern paper, acetate)

Here is an image of the entire wall. It's a smaller version of the original of course. You'll see each piece interacts with one another as usual and I have hung them in various ways. Sometimes they are in groups, sometimes more solitary than others.

I have many more images of these works, I just have yet to edit them... so expect more soon!

Here are the 18 individuals receiving each one

Joe Dupell "Erroneous"
Masako Kamiya "The Burning Giraffe"
Chelsea Sams "My Skulls For You"
Jessica Lewis "Singing Lions Bring Strangers Together"
Thorpe "Parachutes"
Rose Olson "The Color Goddess"
Caroline Bagenal "Let's Go Fly With Caroline"
Allie Hornak "Everything Happens for A Reason"
Jake Thomas "Rainbow Moons, Strawberry Sunshine, and Fluffy Bunnies"
Kate St. Cyr "Sibling Bottom" Alternately "Girl Brights"
Lindsey Mason "Sibling Top" Alternatively "Girl Earths"
Rich Dolan "The Boy and His Brother"
Wilbur Blair "Cotton Sweets, Cotton Dreams"
Marjorie Augenbraum "Spinning Out of Control"
Scott Mooney "Kimora Wolf"
Justin Gagne "Helvetica is Watching!"
Pamela Rusick (my mom) "Why Won't My Son Paint My Cats for Me?"
George Thompson "I'm Pretty Sure She's Having Sex With The Horse Under that Blanket"

Second Wall

The light blue piece needs to be started today obviously. The gold piece still needs to be decided and there is a medium sized surface yet to be hung to the far right or end.

Details of what is probably finished from the 2nd wall

More shots to add to the last entry

Update on Bedroom Work

Pretty much have this whole first wall done. Just a few little things to do but no major changes. So consider these first two as photos of finished paintings.

(sorry for the blur on this one)

This wall has really just begun pretty much

I am putting in a proposal to hang these in a hallway space soon, so I can possibly hang them with some good optional space (hang the work differently since I'm not in a room anymore) and take some good photos of the work.

New large work

Here is one of the pieces I mentioned in another post that I hadn't been able to really photograph at all. It's always been at the main building, but I had nowhere really appropriate to hang it. I was offered this stairwell space without real permission for the piece itself and was just offered to put up whatever, so I chose this one.

This yet to be titled piece is probably about 8.5-9 x 8 ft. Oils and latex on masonite, letters and spray paint
