Glasses

I'm starting a series of accesories for a show that I am having in March at Magpie Boutique. Here is the first piece, a painting of some vintage glasses and wallpaper.

Greening Pains



"Greening Pains"
oil on wood

Green is the way to be these days, and hopefully it's not just a trend but a true concern for our earth. However, while everyone and everything is going green, we are building on top of a damaged foundation as a result from many years of people not being concerned with our earth. It is a one way road now and we cannot undo damage that has been done, but continue to move forward, this painting is my comment on that.

Here is an older piece that I did for Tu Ciudad Los Angeles Magazine, that uses a similar concept, about a mother whos son was away in Iraq and although she never expressed her concern and feelings verbally they were revealed through her cleaning habits.

Ms. October

This was a fun painting I just did that feels very appropriate for this time of year. I collect a lot of old photographs from flea markets and garage sales, and I am always fascinated by the untold stories that these pictures might hold. I don't use them for reference but decided to experiment with it. The pictures are usually black & white and not the best quality, so it was fun to only use it as a loose reference and play around a bit. I didn't plan too much out, just transfered a rough sketch. The product was one creepy portrait....
