Real life is my largest inspiration. I subconsciously translate that into abstracted birds, monsters, or even simple shapes with just enough features that you can tell they’re alive. The results can be surprising even to me. Sometimes when I’m working I’ll add an object for no apparent reason; an extension cord, button, crown, suitcase, etc. I once believed I was just entertaining myself. That is certainly a big part of it. Each piece can end up with multiple possible interpretations, or, just be enjoyed for it’s absurdity. Viewers are relieved of the need to ‘get it.’

Show extended; Another thrift store makeover sold

Good news! The art show I have a piece in has been extended thru at least early August. The show was covered by a local PBS station and it generated so much interest that the gallery owner decided to extend its duration a bit. The painting I have in it is below.

Read about the painting and see some detail shots in my recent blog post / The art show opens July 4, which is the First Friday art walk. The gallery is also op…
