Head is located on the north shore of Lake Superior, just north

wonderful environment that has miraculously evaded destruction by
human hands. That's probably because hardly anyone lives there,
and hardly anyone wants to spend their lives wasting away after
graduating high school.
was one of the moodier and prettier paintings in the series. It
was painted just after Alive in the Superunknown,
so that probably explains the color scheme. That was something I
was impressed with; I also felt satisfaction for not making another
splatter painting with Liquid Paper all over the place like Jackson
Pollack at at Metallica concert.
wish I had painted more like this. I'm reminded of the great Japanese
paintings, scattered with haikus in the corners. Who knows? I may
end up doing that at some point in the future.
