I'M ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED TO HAVE SENT THIS LARGE 4'X3' PAINTING OFF TO A NEW HOME IN OAKLAND. DO YOU SEE THE BUFFALO HEAD HIDING IN THE BACKGROUND? THE PAINTING IS MY HOMAGE TO THE MILLION DOLLAR THEATRE IN LA AND IT'S COMBINATION OF SPANISH BAROQUE AND SOUTH WEST ARCHITECTURAL ORNAMENT. IT'S COMPLETELY OVER THE TOP. INK, ACRYLIC, BLEACH ON LINEN OVER PANEL. GO OUT INTO THE WORLD AND SPREAD JOY, BABY!
I've started thinking about a new paint job for my art delivery truck. Think they would see me coming in this? Gold leaf and all! Yes!!!
One large brush stroke, one stencil, streaks of gold leaf with highlights and low-lights drawn on. But not quite there yet.
Doop de doo de dooooo! I'm in my happy place here. I am really enjoying adding the extra detail to these new pieces, soon to be released!
Living the Dream
For me, being an artist is more than painting alone in my studio. I am inspired by other artists, off-beat adventures and spectacle. I curate exhibitions, collaborate on large public art installations, am an occasional color consultant and interior designer and sometimes I sculpt. I seem to do a lot of writing, but that's just business. I live an art-filled life. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
