Today is the beginning of Modern Eden Gallery’s Flashback Sale, which has officially started as of now!  My painting Transcendental is now available for 25% off, originally 500, now 375.  Transcendental was created for “Familiar: The Spirit Animal in Contemporary Art” and is one of my “butterfly eyes” paintings in which the butterflies are a symbol of life.  Both butterflies and life are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral.  This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.

The sale is going  on online and in the gallery now through Sunday, Nov. 18th, so this is a great opportunity to get a piece for yourself or as a gift for the upcoming holidays.  You can purchase Transcendental online here: https://www.moderneden.com/collections/flashback-sale-2018/products/transcendental.

Up for the Challenge

Doing a lot of research right now as I plan to include a dodo in a future painting. To clarify, this piece is by Roelant Savery and since it was painted in 1626, roughly 40 years before dodos were extinct, I think it should be fairly accurate. There are so many variations in the colors, the shape and size of the feathers, and even in the size of the dodo, and since there are no photographs, I’m combing over old illustrations that range from representational to cartoonish, photos of dried up remains, as well as images of parrots, pigeons, vultures, and chickens. It’s a bit of a daunting project, even though I normally paint realistic images of what isn’t real, I’ve at least seen these things in person to some extent. The challenge is not only to paint something I’ve never seen, but to bring it to life. I’m anxious and looking forward to the challenge at the same time.

Working on a few paintings at the moment- this small painting is currently in progress.  I’ll be revealing the finished piece in my upcoming newsletter next week. (Sign up here for the first look at the finished painting.)  This tiny bunny wears a collar of roses atop a giant heart.  The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.

Art at Home

Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home.  It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see.  So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.

Artist Talk

This is a 30-second clip from my Artist Talk at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  No matter how many times I have to speak in public, it’s always terrifying.  Which is why I often think that the things I don’t want to do, are probably the things that I should do.  Side note: this Saturday (Sept. 24th) is the last day to catch this exhibit!
