Sometimes I get the urge to create paintings that are too large to stretch, are impossible to photograph correctly, take up a whole wall for months leaving me no room to make anything else, loom over me like an anvil, and ultimately have no destination or intended home. So they get rolled up, put in a corner, and wait for the day that they may see light. Below are 2 such paintings. The first is 9' x 4' and the second is 6' x 9'.

After 7 days of being suspended upon a shakey and most dangerous scaffold, I have completed my largest painting to date. It stands at approximately 40 feet high by 26 feet wide and resides at the newly renovated backyard lounge of the Pod Hotel (51 St. between 2nd and 3rd). My fear of death and the anxiety dreams that occurred are now past memories.
Here's a shot of a mural I completed for the main lobby,
2 temporary murals,
and one for the entrance.
