Works in Progress
Here are some images of my current works in progress. I'm always working on something fun and creative. Stay tuned for finished images.
Ziggy Stardust Sheep
36"x48" Acrylic on Canvas
I wanted to continue the sheep series, and I've always wanted to do a Ziggy Stardust painting without it just being a portrait of David Bowie. I like to personify the sheep giving them an attitude. The sheep represent us humans, how our social constructs gives us labels that we all must fit in. I want to encourage the "black sheep" that goes against the norm and setting their own trends. I feel like David Bowie's character Ziggy Stardust is an embodiment of that expression. I just thought I'd use that in correlation to my sheep. I'm still trying to figure out how I want to finish this piece.
Another addition to my Dead Bunnies series, that highlights my role as an Army spouse, and keeping relationships alive via the phone. So much of my marriage, and family relationships have been maintained long distances over the years. Conversations from celebrations to the final phone call to someone. How much of my life is devoted to a singular device. The term "Key Caller" is an army spouse role where someone will call a group of other spouses to disseminate important information.
Please Hold....... finishing touches will be soon.
Lovers of Valdaro
I started these two paintings at the same time. I love the story about these 6,000 year old skeletons found in San Giogio, Italy in 2007. The skeletons were found in what looked like an eternal embrace. I've paused on these projects for now, but I will finish them soon and potentially do more.
Update: I will continue this idea onto a 48"x60" canvas and include it in my Dead Bunnies series. The title will be "Even After Death." It is about my eternal love and bond that I have with my significant other and our inevitable mortality.
They're Baaaaaack! I have a few more of my fun stylized sheep paintings that I'm finishing up. I just love these little paintings. I will post them in my shop soon for sale.
