Geared Up


Just wanted to make something kind of mechanical with gears and all that nonsense.  This was tough to photograph, as the background is metallic copper.

Rooted


This was part of a design for a 1EG i sketched out months and months ago.  I cut out the body and this was the outcome.  I have a thing for twisty trees so this was an instant favorite

Soochi!


I was had the BIGGEST craving for sushi for weeks, but turned down every opportunity to fulfill my sushi needs due to art deadlines and/or laziness.  So the outcome of my tortured soul during those weeks was this delightful painting. I'm in love with her hair in this one.  Don't worry, I got my sushi fix a day or so after painting this.

And now i crave sushi again.

His Doll



This is "His Doll", my first glow in the dark piece ever.  For Bottleneck Gallery's "When the Lights Go Out" blacklight show opening this Saturday, March 22!  


Wish i could be there (I'll be in MD for the Art Without Borders Show) but it's sure to be an amazing show!  Above is my piece in day light.

Below is my piece under the black light.

And below here is my piece in daylight with the black light also on.  I like the contrast between each one, even this one with only the slight glow of Jack in the background.

The Ant Farmer


Meet The Ant Farmer!  This Anteater Ant Farmer is a tricky little devil.  What better way to never go hungry than to manage your own ant farm?  There's a reason his rosey cheeks are so chubby and plump!

The Ant Farmer is my first 8" Dunny, created for the Art Without Borders  art show at Art Whino Gallery in National Harbor, MD.  The show is benefitting Doctors Without Borders.  Read more about the show and Doctors Without Borders on the event page here.

I had such a great time last year, I'll be attending the opening again this year!  The show is March 22, 2014 at Blind Whino in Washington DC, and the show will be on display at Art Whino Gallery after the reception until April 22.

Along with the custom toys for the Art Without Borders show, art-engraved coasters are also on sale to benefit Doctors Without Borders.  All profits go directly to charity.  http://hypnotiq.storenvy.com/collections/45249-all-products/products/5776267-art-without-borders-coaster-set

If any anyone would like to donate directly to Doctors Without Borders page for the fundraiser here is the direct link:

Halentree

"Halentree"
5'x4'
This is one piece i took far too long to finish.  It's a commissioned piece inspired by my client's favorite guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, measuring 4 feet tall by 5 feet wide!  I haven't painted anything this large since college, and i was very excited about it.  It was entirely intimidating, as it was even bigger than i expected, but i had fun painting it.  It feels much more freeing to paint on such a larger scale.  Seeing as i'm in a wheelchair, i had issues reaching down trying to paint the bottom, so as i've done in the past with other large scaled pieces, i flipped the piece around and continued to paint the piece upside down.

I'm happy with the outcome and now i want to paint more this size !
