I found a photo of this piece I painted a number of years back at Psychetronica. Not too long ago this canvas was stretched over a table top and varnished. It looked pretty cool. Here's a video of the sort of environment I was painting in at Psychetronica.
Roughly in 2006 I began working with water washable oils. I'm a great fan of the versatility of oil paint but not always so enthusiastic about the washing up and fumes. The water washable oils by Windsor and Newton are a good alternative and I've recommended them to a number of people who have shared my enthusiasm for the paints.
This is the first piece I painted using the water washable oils and is also one of the first explorations of the use of dinosaurs as a symbolic representation of things ending or becoming extinct if you will.
