"Stories From A Field 232" 6x6x1.5" oil on canvas. Click image to purchase original!

Purchased a 30x40" canvas today and am getting ready to hunker down in the studio for the impending snow storm that is supposed to grace us with it's evil presence starting tonight. Yes. I am entirely over winter. I know as a NYer I am supposed to be impervious to long, nasty winters with back to back storms for months on end...perhaps I am a Floridian at heart? Who knows. All I really know is the only way I can really make it through all of these snow storms is a lot of canvas and even more tubes of paint.

As an aside, I am talking with a few companies about offering Android cases with my work printed on them for purchase. We shall see how it all goes.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! It's gloomy and dark here...working on some more florals (one has a black light responsive background that is bright neon in the light of day!) Trying desperately to brighten up a dreary winter day.

Extremely tired of winter. I plan to paint more of these - they would look fantastic all hung together!

IPhone cases, Pillows,

Some of you might know, but I have partnered with Society6 and am now offering IPhone cases, IPhone and IPod skins, stationary cards, and even throw pillows.

Yes, throw pillows. Ha.

There are also prints on fine art paper as well as canvas over there, so check it out when you have a chance.

Artist Crush: Hikari Shimoda

I come across a lot of art through my travels along these tubes better known as the interwebz. Instead of bookmarking and then losing them (because let's face it, I am the destroyer of technology having blitzed through an endless stream of operating systems...hard drives...ah hell, entire computers,) I have decided to post them here instead. Mostly so I can oggle them in the hopes of one day owning an original.

They're creepy, dreamy confections for the eye. After coming across Shimoda's work via my facebook feed - hooray for the Lowbrow Popsurrealist group! - I immediately panned through each gallery of available work. After attempting to decipher Japanese and converting the yen to dollar (I kid you not) I found a piece that will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine. 

I am admittedly determined to snatch one of these pieces up, because, like Charlie Immer before, it's only a matter of time before Shimoda is plastered all over Juxtapoz magazine selling for 3 times as much as right now. Mark my words.
