A few years back I thought about making some paintings to sell. So I did this painting and then I didn't want to sell it. It's partially inspired by a dream I had many years ago about being near the docks and seeing a frothing hoard of whales pass by. I painted this in '04 and then last year I saw something almost identical to my dream in Miyazaki's latest movie Ponyo. That kinda blew my mind. Anyways, I was never really sure what to do with the painting. Recently Sean McArdle convinced me to let him use the art on his upcoming album. If I ever do decide to sell it , Renee French was the first person to express interest in buying it so I figure she has dibs.
On a related note, recently I've been leaning back toward the idea of making paintings to sell. Look for art for sale here eventually
