Death Tent Inside & Outside

December 3, 2012

   Spent most of the weekend finishing "The Death Tent". This morning, I got up early and took a whack at what it may have looked like in the tent. Had some subtle things going but killed it:

A tad too ambitious with a kid crying a mother breast feeding, cramped quarters and a demonic Smith about ready to unleash death on everyone.

Here's the Death Tent finish:

Yes, that's a brush hook imbedded in the block of wood to the left of the tent flap. Tried to capture tent shadows of people inside with mixed results. Wish I had back a couple areas of this painting. I had high hopes.

Ken and I had a meeting with Channel 8 at noon. Drove into The Beast at 11 and met our contact at Gallo Blanco on Clarendon. Had a mahi taco and tortilla soup.

"Always say 'yes' to the present moment. Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life -- and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you."
