Abandoned America

A digital painting for our times. The subject can be anyone in modern America, a veteran, someone with PTSD like a victim of sexual assault, someone financially ruined by medical bills or loss of a job, or a victim of mental health issues or addiction. Homelessness is not discriminatory, it can affect anyone with redContinue reading “Abandoned America”

Take Me in Your Arms, It’s alright.

The battlefield, you hate it, yet it’s your job to go. Souls need the guidance to the afterlife. They cry for their mothers, their God, even though if you’d ask them before coming, they were adamantly atheist, but as soon as you arrive, they plead for you to free them from their destroyed bodies. ForContinue reading “Take Me in Your Arms, It’s alright.”

Dervish Dancer

Today’s doodle is a dyoptych. Technically, a dyoptych doesn’t exist, as it means two fold. In the art world a polyptych typically start with triptych, or tri-fold, a series of three paintings. I’m lazy, so I invented the dyoptych. What’s it about? Beyond the usual celebration of the human form, its an imagining of theContinue reading “Dervish Dancer”

Course of Action

“Habibi stood looking down at the encampment below. There were too many of them. She could handle maybe 10 at a time, 15 with her horse, but the 100-odd troops below guarding the palace entrance would need something other than a frontal attack. Thoughts raced through her mind. She needed to think of something fast,Continue reading “Course of Action”

A Bird in Hand

It’s a silly title but I can’t think of another, except untitled, so I’m going with it. It’s yet another portrait of a fantasy beauty. Yawn, right? Okay, but created artwork is worth two in the artists head. Besides, maybe it’s not about the girl at all? Maybe it’s about camera settings, what you canContinue reading “A Bird in Hand”

Chapter 3 (March to July 2020)

I was super busy with my day job and totally not able to do any art today (sigh, again) so here is another chapter in the art of 2020. I feel like I’m missing images, so it’s probably not a complete treatise. As far as the background on each artwork? It’s in the posts. HopeContinue reading “Chapter 3 (March to July 2020)”

Urban Tree

Tonight’s drunk art is from my walk this morning. Before anyone tells me telephone poles are round…. Because drivers in my area are attracted to the poles, they are actually rectangular and thick, so it’s accurate – maybe not painted very well, but aesthetically correct. I should say something artistically relevant but I’ll leave itContinue reading “Urban Tree”

Spring Revelations

I may be killing off the last of any artistic reputation I’ve built up with this, but it’s an oil, stencil telling of a secret, buried in the winter, coming to light in the spring. Inspired by Apple Crown Royal, now empty, and the song Electric Love, by Børns, on repeat. Nap time.
