THE SAN FRANCISCO YEARS
From 1965 until 1967 I was a student in the master’s of paintings program at the San Francisco Art Institute. During that time I painted the following images.
The Apocalypse, or as it came to be called, the Flying Chicken painting, was perhaps my crowning achievement as a painter then. The painting just sort of happened, and that’s the best way for a painting to come into being.
This next painting is called, of course, Nude in Bathtub.
I painted The Room in the fashion of Vincent Van Gogh. It was only after it was finished that I realized that there’s a visual joke of sorts in it–see if you can figure out what it is. It belonged to my friends, Abe and Saundra Goldberg, and was returned to me after Saundra died in 2010.
I always liked this painting but, unfortunately, it has become damaged and is not for sale.
THE NEW YORK YEARS
After attending Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and then living in Billings, Montana, for three years (where I painted smaller works) I move to New York in 1981, where I lived for the next 23 years. When I finally started painting again I painted large BECAUSE I thought no one was going to pay attention to my work if I painted small.
