think that I got the name "Admiral Baby" from an episode
of The Simpsons. Naturally, there's more Simpson's gags on the b-side,
as well as some Albert Albee quotes and various quips. I had just
caught a performance of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wollfe,"
starring Patrick Stewart (it was a special project of his that was
sidelined for over a decade when "Star Trek" came calling),
at the Gutherie Theatre in Minneapolis. So that's where the Albee
thing comes from.
really like this painting. I started becoming more violent and destructive
with my artwork around this time, and this in turn led to the Watercolor
on Canvas paintings. There was more of an attempt to allow more
open space on the paper and keep the action to one or two colors.
And it all flows so well; oh, how I hate sitting still.
