Description Acrylic on canvas, 30' x 30', October, 2007.
When I was at Glen Moriwakis workshop in Caunes, I met the artist Kevin Brown. He was instantly a good influence on my painting; he works very rapidly and freely, often finishing a large painting in a few hoursand just as often going back and totally changing the painting a few hours later.
Kevin owns and runs the Live Worms gallery in the North Beach are of San Francisco. On week days he uses it as his studio and his personal gallery, and on weekends he rents out the space to emerging artists who want to stage a show of their own.As Id accumulated quite a few paintings, and I wanted to do something special for the launch of my new novel Postsingular, I had the idea of getting my publisher, Tor Books, to help me rent Live Worms for a combined art show and book release party.
With that show coming up, I figured Id do one more picture, so I painted a still-life of a bunch of sea-shells that I had around the house. The big one is a Triton I bought in Tonga.
