Work on this painting spanned 10 years, from 1997 to 2007. During that time my subject and technique shifted a good bit, so this painting is special because it manages to sum up some of what happened in that decade of time.

An abstracted painting of a bonfire at night in a forest, Omen repeats the fire motif that I was obsessed with during my first several years in New York. By the time this painting was complete in 2007, my technique of painting with circular brushstrokes had taken root, and along with it my palette was expanding. In between those two things had been a series of drawings of self-immolants. That is touched tangentially in this painting as well.

Omen was shown inn the 2007 solo exhibit Unseen at Migration Gallery in Charlottesville Virginia, and also at ArtDC that same year. It is now part of a private collection.
