The Whatevers

In case you can't tell, I like taking ancient statues and making them seem more current. The juxtaposition, especially with color, is interesting to me for some reason. I had the idea first with The Three Graces when I thought, "Wouldn't that be cute as an 80's style Fruit of the Loom type ad?" Then… Continue reading The Whatevers

Stepping Out

I did it. I stepped out of my comfort zone, just like I said I would. I used patterns and prints to add a bit of depth to my canvas. And there were flamingos and pineapples involved just like I said there would be... RuPaul is definitely my favorite of the four. I can see… Continue reading Stepping Out

Fuck Off And Other Paintings

"Fuck Off And Other Paintings" is my new coffee table art book! It has 38 full color pages in a paperback cover. It's 8.5" by 8.5" and about an eighth of an inch thick. The backs of the pages are blank so that you can hang the pictures as prints or write on the back… Continue reading Fuck Off And Other Paintings

Overflow

I really need to build another box, but before I do that I want to reinforce this box. That way I can put the new box on top of this one and have them both open to the front instead of the top! The box is set up now with cardboard dividers that keep the structure… Continue reading Overflow

Artists are inspired by the things they see around them in their daily lives. Since I never leave the studio, the things I see around me in my daily life consist of TV and whatever pops up in my news feed. Well, my brother is a health nut. I mean, full on owns a gym,… Continue reading Aspartame Kills

All That Glitters

  I know. I know. I said I was going to be stepping out of my comfort zone by experimenting  with patterns to create depth. But I came across this chunky glitter and HAD to try it. I have only used glitter on one other piece - Margarita - so it's still technically out of… Continue reading All That Glitters

Good News, Bad News Situation

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Good news it is! Okay, so, you know how shark week panties got my art to Los Angeles, but that's not the entire story. It's just the beginning.  Businesses like to rotate artwork. Just like in museums, people won't visit if the exhibits never… Continue reading Good News, Bad News Situation

Hello, Old Friend

Quite a few people have asked If I view paintings as my children. I don't see it that way. No. I consider my paintings to be much different than children. I consider them to be friends. Creating a piece of work is more like getting to know someone than it is like raising a human being.… Continue reading Hello, Old Friend

Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone

As a creative person, I think it's important to try new things. (Actually, as a person person it's important to try new things. New experiences open up new syntax in your brain.) I like to step out of my comfort zone and push limits. That's how art evolves; improves. Sometimes stepping out of my comfort… Continue reading Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone
