Crucifixion population

1. img_5677-copy.jpgDistillery Collective painter Gary Palmer is the guy on the left with his hand on the dread-locked woman (his sister Tracey).

2.img_5676-copy.jpgGallery owner Bert Green is the bald, goateed guy who looks very pleased with himself with an axe on his shoulder standing before the cross.

3.img_5687-copy.jpgLos Angeles painter Christophe Cassidy is the guard with the rifle on his hip to the right of the cross.  



4.img_5680-copy.jpgLight sculpture artist and burner Sean Sobczak is Jesus.


5.img_5686-copy.jpgSkinny Puppy singer Nivek Ogre is the guy on the right of the three main figures in the foreground.  

6.img_5690-copy.jpgMusic Video and horror movie director Bob Sexton is both of the crucified thieves (not suitable for children).  



7.img_5678-copy.jpgThe amazing dancer Lisa Lock is the ululating woman on the bottom left of the canvas.

Gorgeous Amy Moon, rock star hair guru Lynn Hyndman (my muse, who I have painted so many times) and dinosaur wizard John Scott Lucas are also in the piece. 

Looking at the painting after such a long time is a vivid reminder of the passing of time. It really captures a time in my life that was quite dramatic and transformational. I had recently crashed my car and started to take painting really seriously as my dharma.
