klaimco,

The breathe of a marathon runner an inch over the finish line, I utter the words "It's done"
Just under four years of work, the Dark Tower series is complete.
In this time, I've moved out of my parents basement, got a job and learned the trade of retouching, got engaged and married, had 3 major shows, quit my job, started my own thing, moved again, and covered 90! Square feet of wood(six 3x4ft's and one 4x5ft think that right?) in detailed scifi western Stephen King oil paint. I've wanted to quit the series Everyday. I didn't. If you think I'm being dramatic, try doing it. I'm going to go drink now. I will post the final piece when it dries, gets varnished, and photographed. I'll post the pictures of the series in the Doc's house too.

    no pat on the back cause your my friend, just a genuine appreciation for the ground you covered and admiring where you stand now. You have a hand shake on standby.

    Cheers from your bagger friend.

  6. Whoa, really appreciate everybody's response. I had just put the brush down yesterday and had to tell someone. It hit me how much had happened since I said yes to it all. They may not be the best paintings in the world, but i gave each of them everything I had at the time. It's a good journal at least.
    B2 thanks for the upgrade and being stoked. I do like yeller.
    Dt we should have a touchdown dance lunch or even rowdier, a pub crawl.
    Bagger you stop! kidding, I know you mean what you say and thank you. As a painter, you can probably relate to how long big pieces take, especially me who you've seen paint over paintings four times (I repainted two of these pieces from scratch) cause I suck.
    Thanks again, I'll either start a new series based on 1860-1930 American work ethic ( farming, coal mining, livestock etc) like the digital sketches OR quit painting. We'll see.

    your note you just left has just left bagger in weeping joy.

    if you ask me. i think you should go on with the work ethic series. the american railroad seems like a good place to start (yes, cause i like trains... what?)... i am always excited to see what you come up with next. i remember seeing your sketchbooks when we were 17 they were dope. always impressive (even your isip stage).

    keep on!

    sincerely,
