Darren Waterston Part 2

I've blogged before about one of my very favorite painters, Darren Waterston. Today I got a notice that he has a bunch of watercolors available at Greg Kucera Gallery in order to raise some dough to fund the creation of a "cycle of 26 large paintings about St. Francis, titled "Bay of Weepers" for a proposed museum exhibition." If you've thought about picking up a Waterston now is a good time, there are some fantastic pieces in the new series. A couple are a little too "pretty" for my tastes, but most have what I call a "beautiful-rotting-jungle-in-the-moonlight" vibe that Waterston is a master of.
