Tobacco Bowl

I started this painting in 2004.  It took me 7 years to finish it.  But, I recently finished it and gave it to a lovely friend who was celebrating her 28th birthday.  I started this with a sketch I did at the Tobacco Bowl in Iowa city of the two guys on the right playing chess and the one on the left watching them having a cigarette.  It’s a mix of watercolor crayons and acrylic on canvas.

Francis Bacon

March 31, 2010

I first saw one of his pieces a couple of years ago when I visited the Des Moines Art Center. It’s the painting in panel A featured below entitled Study of Velasquez’a Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953). I featured Velasquez’s portrait in panel A to the left of Bacon’s. I was stunned by Bacon’s painting, it blows you away in person. The painting is HUGE and SCARY. It’s one of my favorites because it evokes you to want to run the hell away from it. He did another one that I featured in panel B that’s also awesome called Three Studies for Figures at the Base of the Crucifixion done in 1944. The Irish born Francis Bacon was born in 1904 and passed on in 1992.

Two Boys and a Jar by Heidi Hehnly (I gave it to Mike).

For some reason it relaxes me just to look at it.
