Oils on Canvas. 48″h x 60″w
Quiet desperation is another of the new large paintings with what seems like a whole novel full of characters inhabiting it. All are just slightly out of focus. Still, as if from a bizarre mixed up dream cast, dozens of odd visages emerge under various lighting to tip their hat. Well, at least the Mad Hatter does, as does as the dormouse. Nosferatu, The Lost Boys, and others have showed up, but not to speak. It’s an appearance of courage, but not quite enough to escape or talk about their lot.
