Fly With You

"Fly With You"
graphite on postcard
4 x 6 inches, framed

Here's my postcard for Modern Eden's second Wanderlust show, opening this Saturday, December 12th.
It's the first time I've worked with just graphite on paper in a very long time, and it was really fun.  I love how soft the image came out, and I'm very happy with it.  I plan on doing more pencil pieces in the future.

The Fox and The Cat

"The Fox and The Cat"
acrylic on birch panel 
11 x 14 inches plus frame
$800.00 for purchase inquiries

Here's my painting for Arch Enemy's upcoming "Wait for the Moon" show opening this Friday, 12/12/14.
Each artist chose a Grimm's fairy tale to interpret, and I chose "The Fox and The Cat".  The tale was simple: a fox boasts that he has many tricks and a cat confesses that he has only one.  The fox is caught by hunters and the cat climbs a tree and escapes them.  The tale is supposed to teach that in times of danger, one option is more effective than having many at one's disposal.

I'm not sure how helpful or true that tale is, but I wanted to paint the fox and cat in my own interpretation, so here, the ghostly fox protects the cat; the foxes' skull is seen at the bottom of the painting.  Also, the fox is shown with several tails, like the Japanese kitsune, with each tail representing more luck.

Just A Worm

"Just A Worm"
acrylic on birch panel
3.75 inches diameter framed to 7.5 inches diameter
available HERE

Here's my contribution to this year's "Crazy 4 Cult" show that opens 12/12/14 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles.

I chose The Worm from Labyrinth (one of my favorite childhood movies) who so frustratingly miscommunicates to Sarah the direction to the castle.  Personally, this little guy always drove me nuts despite his cuteness, so I decided to focus on making him more adorable.
