Thanks to everyone who made AGAST 2011 awesome.  Talking about painting to new people and selling a few in the process is always good times.  If you saw my work but were unable to get back to look at it again, shoot me an email and set up a studio visit at km@karlmetz.com.

These paintings were generated over the course of about 15 hours.  Each one is 6″x12″ and the intent is to group them into larger compositions.

Overall, the experience was extremely valuable to me in that it gave me an opportunity to explore ALOT of different color compositions in a very short period of time.

Title: Eumenides on the Horizon
Size: 17″ x 46″
Material: Enamel on a Salvaged Door

The Eumenides, otherwise know as the The Furies, are Greek Deities who are the personification of anger and vengeance the underworld has towards the world of the living.

Title: The Kelpie
Size: 24″ x 44″
Medium: Enamel on Masonite

The Kelpie is a mythical creature that takes the form of a wet horse to draw children and weary travelers near them.  If one tries to pet or mount the horse, the skin gets extremely sticky and the Kelpie drags the person into the darkest depths of the nearest body of water.  I think the moral to the story is to keep your hands off another man’s horse…

UPDATE:  They apparently call the Kelpie a “Nuggle” on the Orkney Islands.  Gaelic has some awfully cute words for dreadful monsters.

While everyone else was out reveling on Saturday night, I was toiling away making sure my paintings were ready to hang at Fitness Together.  As a reward, I drank what some would consider a little too much calvados,  put the complete works of the Flaming Lips on shuffle and painted this.  I really like the area just right of center, I think it looks like a Morey Eel.

I would love to give this painting to Wayne Coyne, if you are Wayne Coyne, know Wayne Coyne,  or know someone who knows Wayne Coyne, I would appreciate any help you can give in helping me accomplish this mission.

This painting is currently en route to Boston, it folds in half and becomes its own shipping crate.
