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.
