Another 12″ x 12″ canvas, this one I call “Parakeet”. I don’t know how many parakeets are in this painting, nor am I sure there is one, but that is what I think of when I see it!
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!
Last night was the Opening Reception for “The Color of Love” show at Ashton Gallery in San Diego, and I have a painting in the show!
They always have a fantastic turnout at their monthly juried show openings. There must have been close to a thousand people in and out during the 2 hours, it was wall to wall with fabulous art and art enthusiasts!
This exhibit will be on display until March 16th, 2019, if you are in the area, please visit Art on 30th, they are doing wonderful things to support the local thriving art community!
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!!!

I don’t think this one needs a lot of words.

I spent the 80’s madly in love with David Bowie. He was my reason for living. I gathered every book, magazine article and interview that I could get my hands on, this was before the internet mind you. I owned every album and played them over and over with my headphones, searching for hidden messages, and over-analyzing the lyrics.
It was during this time that my fashion sense was a bit, well, outrageous. My hair was every color in the rainbow, depending on the day, my clothes were all hand made or altered thrift store finds, the more bazaar the better!
Anyway, this painting started out as a really bright and beautiful pour, and then I screwed it up. I tried the wet paper towel swipe thing, but it didn’t turn out the way I was anticipating. It’s still pretty cool, it makes me think of space, and maybe, just maybe, this was the view for Major Tom while he was floating round in his tin can!
