in Memorium

This painting was a new request for me. A family member passed away recently and was cremated. I mixed his ashes with most of the paint and came up with this for his mother. When asked what kind of painting she wanted, she replied “Modern art.”  To me, this means a billion different things, but…

Planetary Floppy

B.A.M.F.

This is my childhood friend Cynthia. We lived next to each other for a time and I was friends with her and her sister. I remember doing a lot of things with Cyndi when we were kids. If not for Facebook, we’d never had come in contact with each other again, I’m sure of it….

Designs for Beauty Witch

New designs for cosmetologist, Tiffany Rubio. She wanted to change her branding, and came up with “Beauty Witch, let me work my magic”. It instantly reminded me of Bewitched, the 1970’s TV sitcom. I used pictures of Tiffany to shape her into a cartoon.

Colorado

This is a digital version of an acrylic painting. Golden Open Acrylics are my go-to when canvas painting. This original was donated to a fundraising auction. Prints of digital version available. I love the way Illustrator translated my brush strokes, it makes for its very own version, leaving the original painting truly a one-of-a-kind.
