Paintings > Toy Boats, Leviathans and Strange Sea Creatures: 1995

Some of these paintings are based on a hand carved toy boat that belonged to my grandfather (worn smooth by his childhood). The toy became the subject for my own imagined internal seascapes. During this post-grad period in NYC, I felt, at times, like a small intrepid boat, bobbing along among great looming waves. I was also ensconced in Moby Dick and enthralled with the force and power of his leviathan.
