I know, the color combination might be a bit unorthodox, but I frickin love it! I’ve been working on a series of similar paintings this week, and I’ve had so much fun trying different colors together. They all kind of have a “celestial” feel to them, so even though it’s not a song or music related, (that I am aware of) I think “Jade Galaxy” fits this one!
I’ve been working on new paintings for several new shows that I have coming up, most of which I am not able to share yet, but this one I can! Calling it “She’s Like A Rainbow” cause it’s one of my favorite Stones songs, and we have had an awful lot of rain and rainbows here in San Diego lately!
Stay tuned for where you can come see this painting, and the rest of the series in person, I’ve got all kinds of exciting news to share soon!!
I can barely believe it! One of my paintings was accepted in Fusion Art’s 4th Annual Animal Kingdom Online Juried Art Exhibit!!! Click here to see the show!!!
I don’t know how many submissions they had, but I do know they received submissions from all around the world including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Guatemala, the Netherlands, Italy, India, Russia, Poland, Estonia, Spain, Ecuador and Brazil. To say I am honored and proud to have been selected is a major understatement!
For this competition, both 2D and 3D artists were invited to submit their best art and photography depicting animals, both domestic and wild. The artwork could include any animals that live on land, in the sea or in the air.
Here is my little painting! BTW, I have prints available for sale!
Garnet is also known as the Stone of Health. It can help get rid of negative energy and transform them to positive energy. It’s a good gemstone for purification and detoxification, especially when it comes to the blood, heart, and lungs.
Though this is not an actual stone, I’m hopeful that this painting called “Garnet” will help ward off the evil sickness that has been trying to invade my body and lungs for the past few days. I cannot afford to get sick, there are so many paintings to be created!
This painting actually looks like confetti to me, but to keep on track with the music theme, I’m calling this Physical Graffiti, which also somehow works. I’m talking about Led Zeppelin here, I love that album.
Do you remember the Bukowski movie “Barfly”? Back in 1987, I was infatuated with Mickey Rourke, it was a fantastic movie, also starring Faye Dunaway, whom I also adored. This painting kinda takes me there. Not sure why, but it does.
I really enjoy these 12 x 12 canvases. It’s the perfect size to experiment with new techniques and new color combinations without using too much paint and resources. Also, I find that a lot of people like the price point, especially clients who are just starting their collections. Everyone can make space for a piece of art that captures your heart or evolks a special memory!
I’d like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to my favorite band, The National. I take every opportunity to see them live, traveling when possible, amazing live show, highly recommend them. High Violet is just one of my favorite albums of theirs, I listened to it while painting this, hence the name. Oh Matt Berninger, that voice though, be still my heart!
I think we are all on some kind of spiritual quest, searching for something that makes sense. I finally found my calling in my artwork. This is what I am here to do! Now, it all makes sense, I know what I have to do. Paint!!!
