My oil paintings explore aspects of MELANCHOLIA using traditional methods of oil paint on canvas and on wooden panels. I work initially from pen and ink drawings that combine elements of my own figurative drawing with my photographs and found images. Working directly onto the support with oil glazes, I use these subverted images as the basis for a loose and immediate style of painting. Consequently the oil paintings have a freshness of execution despite the melancholic themes.

In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.
strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?
