This year started off fast in terms of paintings, then things slowed down due to working on a few commissions, dislocating/straining my thumb on my painting hand, intensive writing ) short stories and poems) and putting together a large exhibit for a show in Bellingham.

--- SERIES I --- "Old Gods and Totems"

I closed the old year and have begun 2014 with an exploration of totems, worshipers, and gods.

--- SERIES II --- Paintings to go with my poem "Quantum Physics"

There is and will also be more paintings that go along with my poem:

Quantum Physics: 
A quirky love story told in three parts, which is more about sorrow and escape and the moment a little redheaded-girl learned to walk through walls after discovering the limitations of a half-rusted machete.

---Series III --- Book cover for Larry Crist.

This is a series of studies I did for a book cover Larry Crist's book for "Undertow Overtures." It went from many stages until I captured the core of what Larry was trying to describe to me.

--- SERIES IV --- "Forgotten Land" 

The fourth series I have worked on this year stared May 22nd, 2014. The "Forgotten Land" series that focus on flowers blooming where buildings and man-made structures once stood. 

Some might see a negativity in it due to the lack of human habitation. I see it as a positive that the planet will find a way to bounce back.

Within this series you can also note that the palette I am using features more blues and grays. At its core, I am using the same colors as previous paintings, but in this case, these colors have been muted by the gray undertones and the predominance of blue.

Q: Jude Adebosoye Ogunade the canyon and the flowers...are they on a single theme...is that a continued composition? Duane?

A: Thanks for the question Jude - It is a single theme. The world has titled - be it over population, genocide, climate change, disease - to the point where humans have almost disappeared from the plant. The flowers signify the plant slowly healing itself.
