2021 Winter-Summer 

I started the year with a series of 12×12 inch primarily grayscale  paintings. These continued through June 2021, with a total of thirty canvases. I then took a pause in June. After this pause I created five 12×12 paintings of which  two  remain unfinished to date.

Of Interest…

I recently found this phone ‘interview’ I conducted with Paul Laffoley back in 1997. It was for an article I wrote about some of his ufo experiences. Paul talks about a medallion his parent’s gardener gave him when he was 7 and how it was stolen in Paris in 1967.



In February 2019, Chris began a daily routine of writing 5000 words. By May he had written four manuscripts: Writing About Writing, More Writing About Writing, Welcome to Synchro City, and Dreams.

In the fall of 2019 Chris wrote and published The Birds of Mars Reader which documented the creation of a series of paintings and various activities related to an upcoming Birds of Mars performance.

The following seven books were written and published one-a-month in 2020. They are collectively known as the “Alt Lit Library”: The Two Week Book, Alt Lit Now!, The Door in the Woods, Ghost Town, Coffee Coffee, Movieland, and Seven Movie Scripts.
