My painting the Oracle has a found a home in Portland Oregon with comic artist Erika Moen! I’m super grateful she was patient enough to wait for her purchase to come down from a show at the CACV in VA beach. It feels pretty rad to know that someone I like and admire wanted one of my paintings.
Jason and I are still preparing for Stuntkid & Friends Show this coming saturday in Norfolk VA. It’s pretty rad having a bedroom full of art by artists that you’ve admired for a long time through the warped lens of the internet. It’s better in real life.
In stark comparison my studio area seems to be full of unfinshed paintings. I may need to get a dehumidifier to deal with my paint refusing to dry to workable point.
This weekend I got to take some concept photos with the adorable burlesque performer Marla Meringue. Which means no one will see anything that came out of it for quite a while, but she definitely helped me plan on a few future paintings.
Here’s a peak at some portrait studies from school and home.
Above are two new paintings for an upcoming show in Norfolk VA at the Lorrie Saunders Art Gallery.
I remember pulling out my Ouija Board as a kid and trying to contact ghosts, get dating advice and freak out my friends who had parents that had taught them that it was a tool of Satan. Early on my father taught me about the ideomotor effect but that didn’t ruin the game for me. For some reason my friends and I focused on summoning demon clowns, but then Stephen King’s IT did come on daytime television regularly.
On the way back from Philly, Jason and I stopped at a psychic and had my palm read. I didn’t have my wedding ring on. The psychic told me that I’d make a great doctor(I freak at the sight of blood) and I shouldn’t marry the first person who asks me(oops, too late!)
