Yesterday we visited the Museum of Contemporary Indian Arts (MoCNA) in Santa Fe. We saw a very good exhibition with Spokane artist Ric Gendron (pronounced zhan-drea) and it was some of the most interesting and inspiring art I have seen in a long time. It made me go home and start painting immediately. On a Sunday afternoon/evening I painted in an inspired frenzy for four hours and from a fresh piece of plywood I produced this beginning. The piece is 80 x 40 cm.

There is something mystical in the look of this eye and countless others that just keeps me fascinated and motivated to keep working with eyes and faces.
