I've been working for about a year on three paintings. I only paint when I'm in the mood, which is why it has taken so long.

The first one is "Medusa"  -- inspired by a friend's facebook photo and a photo of an octopus that I saw in a magazine.

I like taking perfectly ordinary people and making them bizarre with oil paint.

The second is " Caliban" -- also inspired by a photo  this time of an actor in the role of Caliban from " The Tempest" 

The last one was inspired by a photo of a guy blowing smoke rings at my brother's hookah bar. 

I'm calling this one " The Smoker" . It actually looks more like Imp 1 than the guy in the original photo.

Good paintings but I remember Caliban as the dude on the island from Shakespeare's play The Tempest... My favorite adaptation is the 1982 Paul Masursky film with John Cassavetes, Susan Sarandon and Raul Julio playing Kalibanos:  My favorite scene:

What are you going to do with them now?  I like the colors.  I can see them hanging in a Hookah bar sometime.

Good call Jmac-- I tend to confuse Puck and Caliban for some reason-- whoops! Corrected in the text.

Zanelle-- framing them and hanging all 3 in the dining room.

Myriad--- I know...I have a weird mind. Thanks 

Rosigami-- thanks for stopping by!
