As Christmas approaches, I will be auctioning off some smaller works and some works on paper – items you can easily give as gifts.
This piece from 2018 has a lot of fun elements going for it. The pictures of the models came from a 1960s fashion magazine a friend gave me. I went through a phase where I was fascinated with those as I was researching the 1960s portion of Storms of Malhado.
The heart is an actual rendering of the heart of a dog. I went through a phase of painting anatomical hearts of favorite animals at the time. The heart is actually painted in acrylic on paper, cut out, and collaged back on – a technique that’s painstaking but that I love to this day and still use to make certain elements pop.
I don’t know what the writing says. I use writing as meditation in some paintings and do it in such a way as to conceal the message.
The minimum bid for the painting is $75. Minimum bid increment: $10. Please enter all bids as comments on the original blog post (below). Bidding concludes at 8pm CST.
