My experience in the Artist in Residence program at the Doof Museum of Culture and History over the last 7 years has bore a lot of work and I am grateful to the Administration for allowing me the space and materials to create all sorts of Doof mischief. In some previous blogs I have posted pictures of works in progress, but now I can show some pics of some finished work.

In the digital imaging studio at the Doof Museum of Culture and History, our trained monkeys are always busy creating images of the Doof for a variety of applications. Sometimes those darn simians are pretty clever! We would like to share with you some of this wonderful images before our computer crashes!

Going through the archives ( Let me tell you, it is a jungle down there!), I and my trusted assistant were pleasantly surprised when we uncovered our vast collection of book jacket art that covered many fine examples of Doof literature. I had the blog dept. post some scans for your enjoyment.

A few years I was awarded the supreme honor of being Artist in Residence at the Doof Museum of Culture and History. located in the historic town of Martinez, California. Here at this state of the arts compound for creativity, I have been provided with a nice studio with plenty of wall space, a clean up sink and a cat that comes to tell me what time is dinner. Actually what time is his dinner. Fortunately during by 15 year residency, I have had lots of inspiration and lately I have been in the grips of a series of paintings leaning on formalist issues I have marked long ago as my personal areas of artistic explorations. As per my contract with the DMCH, I am obligated to post my progress at the Residency.
The current series has evolved a lot of hand work involving carving knives and the color white. I have submitted this information to the research staff involved in some unauthorized psychology experiments that the Museum will do from time to time to raise funds.
