Nude #2 9.5'' x 12''
Nude #2 9.5'' x 12''

Date Created: July 2012

Media Used: Chalk Pastels in sketchbook

Inspiration: With the help of Modigliani and Klimt, I got the idea to create a nude with warm colours with a background of cool colours to push the focus forward. I used the same pose Modigliani uses in his paintings to express the same bodily flow. 

Price: $80.00

Joker 30'' x 30''
Joker 30'' x 30''

Date Created: February 2012

Media Used: Modeling paste, gel transfers, and acrylics on wood panel

Inspiration: After having a conversation with a friend about making a painting with smaller images, I came to the idea of getting a bunch of "sadistic" movies and chosing one image from a bunch. 

The movies I chose include; Black Swan, Clockwork Orange, REC, The Shining, It, American Psycho, Life of a Serial Killer and Hard Candy.

The filmstrip at the top of the panel simply adds to the movie theme and balances the detail from all the images. The eyes are to give a frightening feel to the viewer. 

Price: $450.00

Royalty 18'' x 24''
Royalty 18'' x 24''

Date Created: February 2012

Media Used: Straw, acrylics, iron oxide, oil paint, coins and stamps, on canvas.

Inspiration: I started making the border first, with no intention of having a center. I like the composition of having gold on top of something wasted like iron oxide. I felt it gave it the significance of the rich overthrowing the wasted, which inspired me to paint the middle completely red and throw on some coins and stamps to give a focus and more significance.

Small Beauties  24'' x 32''
Small Beauties 24'' x 32''

Date Created: February 2012

Media Used: Modeling paste, acrylics and oil on wood panel.

Inspiration: Originally a simple peom about the small beauties of the world; beautiful things that aren't recognized until one is finding themselves in a mindful state. For the background, I used a variety of the primary colours; red, blue and yellow to signify a colourful mixture that can be manipulated into being any colour when mixed with each other. White was used for the poem so it can stand in front of the colours behind it and to add to the symbolization of the painting. When white light goes through a prism, all the colours shine through the other side.

Queen Amidala 8'' x 10''
Queen Amidala 8'' x 10''

Date Created: February 2012

Media Used: Black and white pencil sketch

Inspiration: Through my love for Star Wars. Also, the commencement of a new painting I'm hoping to develop. I'm going for photorealism so I figured drawing a sketch before would help me realize what I would be up against. I think I'll be able to successfully complete my challenge. 

Price: Framed: $60

Envy 8.5'' x 11''
Envy 8.5'' x 11''

Date Created: November 2011

Media Used: Oil paint on wood panel.

Inspiration: The idea for this one was based on something I had seen in Florida from when I last visited. My family and I were going for a walk around Key West near the ocean when we saw all sorts of spectacular people doing their thing. There was this one guy balancing on his bike, which was proped up on a pole, just like in my painting! I found it absolutely incredible simply because I love biking! I incorporated the beautiful sunset and played around with the man's skin tones to match the light of the sun. The brightest thing in the image is the man as the main focus, while the birds in the background are painted black to symbolize the beauty of the bike seeming to fly in comparison to the seagulls.
