This painting nearly cost me my career. When I started it an artist friend, Jerry Watson, said “you’ll never finish that.” He was off, but not by much. Four years and 2,000 hours later it was ready. Ivan Albright would have been proud. My goal was to render a vast, imaginary wound to the earth sublime— as much constructive as destructive.
