In honor of my Birthday today I am posting a brand new oil painting. Check this out! It is one of my greatest creations to date and I am very proud of it – “Daybreak”. It will be entering it into an international competition (judging to take place in March of 2014). It would be a great birthday present to me, if you would share it with all of your friends far and wide , especially ones that like Mermaids.
Lady Gaga recently had to cut her Monster Ball tour short in order get a hip surgery (synovitis). I painted this portrait as a tribute to her. Folks mention that I put a little bit of a Yurik/Burning Man spin on it. I couldn’t help myself. I have titled it, “Warrior Queen”. It is inspired by the lyric in her song “Marry the Night”. In the song, she tells of a dark time when, faced with watching her young career colapse, she resolves to embrace her own darkness and the life of an artist for good or ill. As a fellow artist trying to buck the trend, I can totally relate to this struggle. I find constant inspiration by how she lives her life, her dedication to her craft, the love she has for her fans, and the person she chooses to be in the world.
People always seem surprised when I mention that I respect Gaga, being a classical painter. Oh, but the magical realism mixed with contemporary and visionary work, that I do has much more in common than one might think with her creations. In the depths of the crazy rabbit hole we call The Arts, she and I are not so different at all. You don’t have to be a pop artist to fully appreciate Gaga’s amazing accomplishments. I can forgive her for her worship of DeKooning.
Folks have been asking if I will sell prints of this painting. So I am putting together a little fundraiser. Majority of proceeds to be donated to the Born This Way Foundation. I am offering 3 diferent sizes of signed prints:
