Hiding place

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

I met a very young little girl who would say, “look I’m invisible”, and she would close her eyes. Do you ever get the feeling that you just want to be invisible, if only you could think it and make it happen.

I decided to make her a firey red head, I think she wears it well. A smallish painting but its taken two weeks. Sometimes they happen fast and sometimes not!

A Fish Out of Water not so main stream, up stream or down stream

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Ever feel like a fish out of water? I think I have always felt that way. Never having fit into into various types of groups, or belief systems. I have always valued thinking for myself, and not just accepting what I was taught or told as a child. I’m not so “main stream” I’m a bit of an odd ball or a “fish out of water”. The painting has a bigger connotation in that it suggests embracing differences and there is more to this idea that has to do with needing air, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet.

A bit more glazing and a splash of glitter to glam her up and she will be good to go.

My take on Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton’s wonderful story. For a show in Detroit called Cindy Lou Who’s Holiday show, based on holiday tv shows or movies. Next, grown up Cindy Lou Who.

Normally on Thursdays I would be packing up to go to the gallery. I am pleased that I don’t have to make the hour long trek, although I did enjoy being at the gallery, the long commute was wearisome.

It seems that every year at this time, I’m tortured with thoughts of my Bro, still can not believe his is gone.

Glad to be holed up in our cozy home, so glad to have a home, and glad pugs are healthy albeit stinky. Wish I could get them to smell like flowers, since they live in my studio, but they always smell like dogs.

Out of Body

Wanted to illustrate the idea of an out of body experience.

I imagine a flying bee would seem to be vibrating, I alluded to this in the marks making up her hair.

Falling Figments, redux

falling figments redux

I’ve been revisiting some older paintings and trying to figure out why they didn’t sell. Been re-adjusting, for more interest, this is one. I am happy I re-worked some areas.

Been sketching out some compositions for a commission, a very pretty woman and a bunny. I don’t usually do commissions, I simply can not bear someone tell me I need a little more blue in this corner, or more this, less that or or or. Nope, won’t play that. But, this patron has agreed to full artistic license, my terms, that will be fun.
