Following up on Wednesdays image, here is one of the first paintings from my Donkey series. This series was started in 1996 after I had lived for a short time in Puerto Rico. I originally started this body of work with what would later become the Wall series in mind. These works feature the downtrodden and lowly donkey. Not an animal one considers grandiose such as a horse or lion, tiger or bear but mearly a simple ass. Yet without this beast of burden working alongside humans for nearly five thousands years, humanity would be a much different thing. The first donkey caravans laid the groundwork for todays globalization and were the first highways and "internet" of it's day, spreading goods, ideas and cultural exchanges to the civilizations they connected.
