I am trying to incorporate some "action" into my paintings so there is more of a "narrative". My last painting; "Double Espresso" had my model holding her Starbucks cup, and this time my model; Deserae, is holding a Red Bull while texting on her iPhone. Not much action I know, but it is more than I used to paint. In fact, Deserae looking down is something different for me as I almost always have my models looking directly at me, just because that is my preference.
"Energize", oil, 30" x 24"
Star Trek fans may be familiar with the term "energize", as it is what Kirk or even Piccard said when someone would be in the transporter to be "beamed" to another place (usually another planet) ....or "energized".
If you want to see these Super Hero paintings in person, please check them out at Scott Richards Contemporary Art at 251 Post St. in San Francisco. It promises to be an amazing show with many talented artists!
