My newest work has taken a turn. I still consider it part of the "Childish Things" series but it has become more abstract. These paintings are all titled the same for this reason: there is a wide variety of discarded objects dumped in the landfills around the world and likewise in my landfills there are many ideas being dumped on the medium. All of this derived from my fascination with the dump when I was a child. If you think about it most everything ends up in a landfill; it's why archeologists have jobs. We're all destined to end up there someday, are we not?
Some recent images from the sketch book:
MEET MY FAMILY
Just for grins because I love them so much, I thought I'd share my family with you all. They are all big supporters of my artistic endeavors, which means they also put up with my temperament. They were instrumental in my return to painting after a long period of not painting with fully focused intent. The photos of family members were taken by my daughter Briana and you can see her work on her blog at kurthphotography.wordpress.com Not pictured is my son Steve because I don't have a recent digital photo, so as soon as I do I will post. He is the oldest of my six children.
