The Astral Ones

"The Astral Ones"
acrylic on cradled birch panel
12 x 12 inches
available HERE

Here's my painting for Modern Eden's "Universe: The Art of Existence" curated by Warholian's Michael Cuffe.

For this piece I wanted to step a little bit outside my comfort zone and paint my ghostly animals as constellations among the stars in the sky.  There is also a reference to Hecate, in the triple moon symbol at the top; the triple face goddess.

The show opens this Saturday, April 12th in San Francisco and boasts an impressive lineup of artists' interpretations of the universe and cosmos.

Bejeweled Beauties

"Bejeweled Beauties"
acrylic on birch panel
8 x 10 inches framed to 12.5 x 15 inches

Here's my painting for "Indelible", opening April 5th at Aunia Kahn and Russell Moon's gallery, Alexi Era.
The show features a collection of art that reflects upon the idea of permanency.  For my piece, I chose to portray some white foxes, one of them winged, which have gemstones in their foreheads.

This is my first time showing at this gallery, and I'm honored both to be included and to have my image as one of those on the postcard and promotional materials.

Formula 86

"Formula 86"
acrylic on birch panel
4.5 x 6.5 inch oval framed to 8.5 x 12 inches
inspired by "The Witches"
available HERE

Here's my painting for "The Subtle Art of Pop Culture" at Gallery 1988, opening April 11th, which also marks the 10 year anniversary of the gallery.

We were asked to choose whatever movie we wanted to be inspired to create our piece from, and I chose one of my absolute childhood favorites, "The Witches", starring the gorgeous Anjelica Huston.

Pictured is Liebschen, the Grand High Witch's black cat, and Luke in his mouse form with the bottle of Formula 86, which the witches used to turn children into mice.  Formula 86 was named thusly because it "eighty-sixes" children.
