Zebra Mouth

Zebra Mouth• I guess you will find this painting a bit odd, not to me though.  It represents the phenom of self mutilation for “beauty”.  Plump up your lips, even though your face is covered in lines…I don’t know, would a zebra do this?  This painting has been accepted into a new home. 12″ x 12″ acrylic […]

Twice Warned

Twice Warned This is pretty obvious I guess, but if it isn’t…I was thinking about the “road of life” and how there are signs and warnings all along the way that we ignore unless they are glittery. The double yellow line represents, don’t go there…really. 8″ x 8″ acrylic on canvas click on image to enlarge

The Watch This is another painting from my “skins” time frame. The inspiration photo was a full person…but the eyes drew me in, so I focused on them. 12″ x 12″ oil on canvas click on image to enlarge

Star Power This little painting was inspired by a photo of Greta Garbo in her early days…she smoldered.  I couldn’t resist painting her. 12″ x 12″ oil on canvas click on image to enlarge

Postereye

Postereye As a graphic designer I am hooked on the posterizing of images. I hoped I could pull it off on something as simple as an eye.  It came out better than I hoped as the brush strokes give it a nice effect adding another aspect, it was more difficult than I thought it would […]

Rain

Rain• I wanted to show layers and layers of billowy clouds – probably got a bit carried away!  This painting is meant to represent a rain that falls after a lightning-thunder storm…when I look at it I can hear rumbling and crackling. This painting has been accepted into a new home. 12″ x 12″ acrylic […]

Quiet

  Quiet When I painted this one I was stressing over something!  Just wanted to escape into a lovely meditation. I remember studying photos of atmosphere, grasses growing, and misty woodlands before plunging into this one. Can’t wait until I can afford more oil paint. 12″ x 12″ oil on canvas click on image to enlarge

Little Green House

Little Green House This was pure imagination…I like formally aligned homes…with porches, and lots of pretty windows. Imagine the spring when the trees regain their foliage and the sky is a clear soft blue. 8″ x 8″ acrylic on canvas click on image to enlarge

Mighty

Mighty This painting was one that I did during a period of “skins” I would incorporate the skin of an imaginary animal (cat, but not one that is an identifiable species!)  I just started painting and this really strong jawed powerful character grew from my brush. Big story behind this one as the canvas reveals […]

Just Blend In

Just Blend In This is more of a drawing than a painting, however, I had fun during the process, I do love pattern! So what begins as a doodle… 8″ x 10″ Mixed Media – acrylic and ink on canvas click on image to enlarge
