A few photos of my current painting in progress. I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.

In The Wild West, a skeletal horse and human hybrid, suggesting our practices of genetic manipulation, serves as a grim tale of foreboding. The skeleton, the horse skull, and the desert are symbols of cowboys and typical Western imagery. Television Westerns would typically portray life as good vs. bad, when in reality, the land, environment, people, and animals were all seen as a means to an end. The title refers to how the U.S., itself a part of the western hemisphere, is still taking over land, animals, and resources to this day, creating desert landscapes via clear-cutting and global warming.
