My latest work brings the idea of the nostalgic photo back. Instead of just painting the cracks on the surface, I attacked the panel with a knife, gouging and ripping into the wood to create the "folds". The subject is part character, and part portrait of the girl of my dreams. I've rendered this woman in several pieces. I call her "Turtle Girl" because of the markings on her body. She's appeared in one form or another in previous pieces spanning over a decade. Now I have her in real life. I call her "wife".
