This painting was the first painting created toward my Master's thesis, painted back in 1997. I was just beginning to search for the variations and subtlety's of the nocturnal world, seeking out the strange and unexplored locations near my home. I would spend two years seeking out similar, and sometimes more dramatic motifs. I learned to refine my ideas, and become more economical in my paint applications; and for two years, have the goal of producing unsellable artwork.
I eventually became overdrawn in my sleep bank account.
