I've been doing a lot of painting lately, getting ready for an upcoming show at Max Fish. My friend, Max Schumann, with whom I'm collaborating on this endeavor, has decided that he needs more time, so it looks to be pushed back for a month. These are some of the smaller works I've made so far for the show. There are some very large works for the show to complement these. The subject is not a new one for me, but there is a vitality to the painting, despite the grim theme, that pleases me. I hope that it may please anyone who may come across them. The show at Max Fish is now set for April 2013. If you happen to be on the Lower East Side of Manhattan then you may look for it.
