UNVEILING: Hupomone ~ We Fight On

Hupomone: We Fight On   Limited time get 10% off canvas prints on Empire of Light

This painting is about a lot of things and has multiple meanings. It was originally inspired by a friend of mine, Ivy, who is a traveling gypsy and shortly after starting this piece was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and embarked on a journey attempting to treat her disease by holistic means. The image of the painting changed almost completely at that point. The painting is about cancer. The painting is about women coming into their own. The painting is about the middle east. The painting is about the world finding its way into an evolved path. 
Here are some close up for your viewing pleasure:

Gorgeous New Mermaid Painting

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 Portrait – Warrior Queen


Lady Gaga Warrior Queen Bring On the Night

Lady Gaga – Warrior Queen

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:


11×14 print on paper $39

Paws up, Yo!
