Rarely do we get to collaborate or work together on a project together and get better than expeted results. Fellow artist Jason Fondren brought over a painting that he hasd been working on and he felt that he could no take piece any further and asked if  I wanted to see what I could come up with. “Sure!” , I set the painting up in my studio and looked at everday for about two weeks. Then one day I contributed what I could and called the piece finished. The end result has been described by some as woman from an ANN RICE book or woman who enjoys pushing her sexuality to the extreme. You decide for yourself, for myself I see a woman who has a smile that says you will never break me down and you will never own me.

Paintings from Fall/Winter 2007/08

With the Fall comes creative inspiration. The long summer days surpress the creative river that flows underneath always waiting to be unleashed. Then that first cold front that comes in unleashes the creative river. Here are a few paintings from my recent latenight painting sessions.

New Paintings

Started on a new series – Called “Picnic in the Jungle”, these have been greatly influenced by the Avnat Garde Band the RESIDENTS. There will be a total of 10 paintings in this series and each one will be direclty related to a paticular Resident song. This is the first time I have attempted this form of creative expression, my paintings are never pre-planed. I usually start painting and what happens.. happens. I have been wanting to do something related to the RESIDENTS for a long time and this avenue seems to be the best way for me to express this. I have been listening to the RESIDENTS since I was 8, starting in 1977 watching their videos on NIGHTFLIGHT (showed music videos and music based movies late night on weekends). Here is the first painting titled: “PICNIC IN THE JUNGLE” – Size: 48″ x 30″ – Medium: Oil on Canvas. Questions regarding purchase please email me by click here. Enjoy!
