go see a man

A 12×12 inch sketch for a larger painting. Words are often a stepping stone into my paintings, a way of drafting ideas. Paintings are a bowerbird process, where you pick up ideas, painting and over-painting them until they settle into place. Layers build,and become part of the language of the painting.

Gotta see a man about a dog‘ is an English idiom, used as a way to say one needs to apologise for one’s imminent departure or absence – euphemistically to conceal one’s true purpose, such as going to the bathroom or going to buy a drink. Sometimes it’s just a sidestep, a nifty way of diverting a question.
