Nexus Familiaris

A new painting on wood, cute and sentimental balanced by a serious Latin title. I think I may adopt that title strategy for my more lighthearted paintings, I really like the contrast. If you would like this for your very own you can find it in my etsy shop.
I'll be making a print version available but not before I get a new computer (hopefully this week). Doing any kind of image editing on my antique causes me to tear my hair out!

Exhibit Pics

Well, I have finally gotten the exhibit pictures downloaded from my camera. I was so disapointed to find that most of them were blurry. This one came out fairly o.k., it shows the wall mounts I made out of Ikea mirrors (displaying Sheeple) that proved to be just as popular (if not more so) than my paintings.

The design worked perfectly well in my head, but not quite so well under real life conditions involving gravity. However they did the job and I'm working on ways to improve the design.

My Name Is Simon

Sometimes I find I just need to go into my studio, clear off all the projects in progress, and just play. That is just what I did yesterday, and My Name Is Simon was born.
If any of you were tots in the 1970's and watched the t.v. show Captain Kangaroo you might remember the animated short segments called "Simon" that used to appear frequently on the show. A little boy created a world with a piece of chalk. The foggy distant memory of that show was the inspiration for this painting.
I listed it in my Etsy shop last night.

Let Them Eat Cake

I have a new print in my Etsy store, Let Them Eat Cake. A bit of social commentary presented in a lighthearted manner. You can get one of your very own here.
