The Hudson, The Tractor and thoughts
The last place I ever expected to be is here. And. I will admit it. It feels like I am selling out. But only sort of.
I did a lot of realism, and thoroughly loved what I did 12-14 years ago. Because I made statements with it. Pieces likes “I Ain’t Gonna Work” were not designed to be pretty pictures.
This is “The Tractor” (not the formal name) This is a social statement about where we are with small farms:
This is the last commission. No politics, no comment, but it feeds me and the cat.
And, I really don’t want to make overt political statements with my art. I really want to make people scratch their heads and say, “Huh?” But, I am almost thinking that we might be beyond that stage too.
