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:

The Tractor, stage 3

 

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.
