A painting of the Hurricane Irma chainsaw nun.
This acrylic painting on a 16 by 20 inch stretched canvas is painted in an impressionistic style. It could have much more detail, but life is short and I like it they way it is. The chainsaw represents faith, as does the nun, the brush behind her, the act of painting, and the very day of the week in which it was posted online-Sunday. This is a nice painting, devoid of pancakes. It isn't that I refused to include pancakes; as an act of faith they simply didn't happen. That doesn't mean they do not exist within the image..they may be within the brush or the nun, or perhaps tucked away neatly inside of another oncoming hurricane. The style of this image is very fluid, which is a change of pace from a number of more rigid paintings which I have been developing, most involving Prince. I have spent most of the past year and a half painting Prince; it has been a journey.
This painting of resolute Christian Faith And Initiative in the face of the merciless calamity of Hurricane Irma as captured in a viral online video become an inspiring internet meme is currently available on Etsy.

This is meant to be a nice Melania and Donald Trump double portrait. The pancake suspended in the air between them is merely incidental.
I understand that some people do not like breakfast, therefore, I have posted a pancakeless version of the above painting to my Etsy.

Larger Trump Tower and White House Melania Trump portrait.
This painting was sold on my Etsy last month. I've used this blog so little in the past few years, relying instead almost exclusively on my twitter and instragram. I'll try to catch up by posting both largely unseen things and newer paintings.
I also still post on Flickr, and less frequently on Tumblr. Here's this same portrait posted on Tumblr.
Thanks to Everlasting Blort for recently featuring this image of the tower reclusive Mrs. Trump.

This painting is currently listed on my Etsy
For the past year I've largely taken a break from contemporary painting, instead focusing on painting many portraits of Prince, as I live relatively close to Paisley Park. It has been and continues to be a very fulfilling experience.

By request-a painting of Bill Nye The Science Guy with a climate changed pancake on top of his head.
This is a variation on part of my Bill Nye With A Pancake On Top Of His Head Vs Creationist Ken Ham With Smiling Bacon And Eggs painting from two years ago. I printed just the Bill Nye section of the painting on a sheet of canvas, and then directly painted over the image with acrylic to create the new image.

Larger Donald Trump Pancake Fuhrer image.
Cross posted to a few of my regular haunts, including Flickr.
Reoccurring head cold again, ugh.
I have no will to start a larger project, but I have a number of 11 by 14 inch canvases which I may doodle an image upon. They aren't too expensive, so perhaps this would be a good habit to develop.
Still need to paint a monkey pancake.

A portrait of Taylor Swift with pancakes on top of her head. Painted last weekend.
The stumps in the background are of pop stars past or becoming. I may revise one stump to demonstrate that it is in the process of forming.
The double pancakes represent Taylor's two album of the year Grammy awards.
It seems as if I am cleaning my coffee maker every two weeks now.
I very much doubt that Hitler had a micropenis.
My ideal weight is supposed to be 165 pounds so I would like to lose at least another three pounds by Saturday. That would put me only five pounds above my goal weight.
I worked on this painting for about an hour at a McDonalds in Inver Grove Heights.
I would like to start a painting called Infant Of Pancakes for Lent, but I need a photo of an infant to look at. That, or an infant.
Just remembered that I have a blogger app on my tablet; I should get into the habit of using it. Many of my newer paintings are posted first to
twitter or flickr, most directly to Etsy.
My Justice Antonin Scalia memorial painting is from a week ago.

The repainting was done directly over a canvas print of the original file. I added darker blacks over the background, refined some detail on the face and largely overhauled the pancake.

The original painting is not available, but I have made a new canvas print available on my Etsy.

Larger smiling Bernie Sanders
Thanks to the art forum at Reddit which last week posted my original Bernie Sanders pancake portrait. The imgur link has been viewed more than a million times.
I have another Bernie Iowa themed painting which I started before the above and which I may have completed later this evening.
Both the original painting and canvas prints are available at my Etsy.

Katamari Damacy Gun Control Obama painting (larger image)
This painting was recently purchased by a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon, who wondered if it was in response to President Obama's recent intention of employ executive action, independent of the will of Congress, to enact tougher gun registration. It wasn't. I had actually been thinking about this image for the past six years, and it was a request by Politico Magazine for the use of a number of images of past Obama paintings for possible use in their current 'The Obama Issue' which made me think of it.
Obama Hurricane Sandy Pancake art, as featured in a Politico slideshow. This was one of two similar paintings.
Perhaps I'll get around to that 'Obama Balloon Boy' painting I've been long thinking of as well.
Imagining Obama: The Art Of The First Black President
The Katamari Damacy image above is a reworking of the original post on Twitter.
An 8 1/2 by 11 inch canvas print of the above is available on Etsy.
Thanks to the video game collective blog attract mode for posting my Katamari painting.

This was inspired by the painting of Ben Carson and Black Jesus which is hanging in Dr. Carson's home. My Jesus is the Aaron McGruder version.
