First new painting of 2013! Recently had a commission for this piece. After another work of mine Floating, though this painting evolved differently, with more layers and overlapping colors. Acrylic and twine on canvas, 20″ x 24″. See it in The free line.
A painting for my Grandfather, Joe Rodgers, who often drew the “lucky rabbit” while serving in WWII in the navy to illustrate the boat’s travels. This painting was brought to the 2012 reunion in Chicago. He would bring similar paintings to the reunions in the past but has stopped this practice in recent years. I chose to put the rabbit (Bugs) in front of Cloud Gate, the public sculpture by Anish Kapoor because it was my favorite site when I visited Chicago a few years back.
The tall building in the center is One57 – a new residential skyscraper that is making a big impact on the skyline. No doubt it will provide some incredible views of the park and surrounding neighborhoods. This piece is also posted in the Outer World gallery.
New. Acrylic on canvas, 18″ x 24″. Also in visions.

The lines for this site-specific collaboration were drawn by the three of us altogether, in one place. From there, the panels were separated according to a Latin Square pattern. For many, this pattern will be familiar from the game Sudoku, where each number appears in each column and row once. For this installation, there was one additional row for which the pattern of the first row was repeated. Each row had its own prompt which drove the creations that followed. This is how the art looked on day one:
All these pictures can be viewed in a slideshow on the collaborative page.
The week-long show began Monday, if you are in Eugene, be sure to come back (to the LaVerne Krause gallery) everyday through February 10th as the installation disintegrates. An explanation of the installation and some more detailed photos will soon follow.
