On our walk I spotted a bird, I mean its wings:

Puppet Show, Damned V, Sassafras in a closet and J swimming at Night

Oil on canvas

In the theatre of the absurd, the puppet master is a single female figure who thoughts are split between ideology and reality at she manipulates her alter ego puppets below and colludes in her own subjugation. The idea comes from the notion of some to over turn Roe v Wade and take away a woman’s right to decide for herself what to do with her own body.

I did all the under painting in acrylic so this painting took less than a week to do. this painting will be featured in the Damn Show:

My little girl pug Sassafras loves to sit on garbage bag, it doesn’t matter much what is inside them but clothing or blankets or towels are particularly appealing to her royal needs 😀 Yes she is descended from Royalty sired from Prince Pugliese, its true!

So she spied this garbage bag in the craft corner of a closet and crawled right on in to make herself comfy 😀

This is a photo of the hub swimming at night, I think it looks cool.

I have quite a few paintings that I am painting over as they were just unsuccessful, this is one that I have painted over. Its kind of a hybrid. I kept the legs from the painting it used to be and what sprouted out was this somewhat whimsical figure. The canvas is fair big 18 x 36

Damn heels

I might use it for our holiday card with the caption “Happy freakin Holidaze!” I think its funny and reflects the stress and unhappiness so typical of the season

Its Humid Out…

Stick Figure

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

24 x 24 oil on canvas

“Stick Figure”

I’m not really certain how I got to this little figure, that is, I just started painting without a pr-conceived idea and it evolved on its own. When I stopped trying and thinking, it worked out.

Its a quiet painting.
