reverse glass painted collage
This is directly influenced by two figures from early works, “The Lovely Duck” and “Life And Death”. The duck body with stitch marks, turned to the right and topped with the head of the shiny black beak-wearing dog (featured in the third panel of “Life and Death”). Two bird dogs lived in a pen on the property behind my back yard. They would always howl when the church chimes rang. As an afterthought, I guess the duck body may be ironic since bird dogs were used for hunting ducks.
“BirdDogDuck” stands proudly on his mountain of collaged lentils against a silver mist.
