Mr. Wiggleworm

In 2000, I had just started two of my more socially conscious series: "America's Seven Deadly Sins" and "Youth Culture in America."   They were super engaging and rewarding, but all of a sudden I needed a break from the weight of them.   In the course of a month, I completed this series of Mr. Wiggleworm paintings, a delightful diversion.

One of the things I really loved about these paintings was the way the wood grain took the underpainting and showed itself after a couple of passes with my trusty Porter Cable 5" hook and loop random orbit power sander.
