“FLAMING HOME” painting
48” × 75 1/2” massive original painting
Sumi ink on crumpled weathered paper
This is the original painting that was the artwork for “Lost Wisdom” by Mount Eerie with Julie Doiron and Fred Squire. It was painted inside the house that is depicted (which didn’t actually burn down) in Anacortes, Wash. in spring of 2008.
If the high price is absurd or offensive, I apologize. Pricing art is the weirdest. In the years since this was painted, it has taken on more and more significance and personal attachment, and also I am interested in letting it go.

“ink bottle” painting 22” × 28” original painting Sumi ink on posterboard, painted circa 1997. In high school I had an independent study period where I was allowed to hang out alone in the art room. I went into the art supply closet and discovered an ancient large bottle of india ink (or sumi ink?) and have still not advanced beyond this ideal medium. I put the bottle in my backpack and took it home. This is a painting of that bottle. It has flaws and tack holes because of its age. $450

“ESCAPED WOLF STILL AT LARGEPRINT 25”×37”, giclée printed on 315g heavy velvet rag archival paper I made this painting in 2004 as part of a series that maybe is still going on? This one is the first in the series. A big headline at the top, a picture in the middle, and a quote from the subject at the bottom, kind of like the broadsides that newspapers would print and mount on the sandwich boards outside newstands that just had the big impact stuff. In movies. Specifically in the 1992 movie “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, a newsboy yells out “Escaped wolf still at large!”, and I took it from there. The original is painted with sumi ink and espresso on vellum. It’s not for sale, but hangs at Hogstone on Orcas Island.

Seventeen of the already grainy images from the book “Mount Eerie pts. 6 & 7”, blown up to jumbo proportions (49” × 34” / 124.5 × 86 cm), exaggerating the fog and creating a portal in your wall. These are archival epson prints on heavy quality photo paper, full bleed. They could go in a frame or just with tacks. Humongous.
