Wave XV was put together pretty fast and I didn’t document it from beginning to end. Below are the details that make up this painting.

This piece is not quite finished. There may need to be more sewing in foreground and around the abstract layering of wax. The figures in this piece appeared and disappeared. I wanted to create a static about them, but each time I brought them back into detail. The title of the piece is still up for grabs. Using the right words to describe this is not coming at the moment. The image started a few years ago, when I was painting the bleedthrough (future) series. The image was of two beings creating another in their likeness and this is how they went about it, putting a pail into a long trench in the ground. Although these figures were supposed to be more alien like, they kept reappearing as strictly human.  I went along with it and any other detail that arose. But now this painting has ended up belonging to a different series; making it so, where the human/earth relationship is more present.
