Carnival season is almost here and what better way to ring in Sweet 2016 with a Marie Dollface ” Let Them Eat King Cake” poster! Click my shop link in the menu above or right here
I have been painting this Marie Antoinette Dollface for a few years now but this is the first year i will be doing posters of her. The original painting was up in Tresor Gallery in the French Quarter a few short hours before it sold. I will be doing more original paintings but won’t be doing any more Marie posters until the 2017 Marie poster. Also will have more posters and prints of my other paintings soon on my webshop so keep checking back. Happy Mardi Gras!
There are many things that art can do for the artist and the viewer. Art can make us think, remember, imagine and visualize a reality that appears different than our own. I was shaken by the attacks on Paris in particular not only because I personally know people who experienced that madness first hand but because Paris is a hub for artistic expression and attacking it felt very much to me like attacking the idea of freedom of expression. As this is basically the most important thing to me I realize even more that those who see no value in creativity were more than likely deprived of any idea of personal value. So instead of editorializing and flying off the handle about whats wrong with the world and what can be done to change this or that I would ask one thing. Make some art, you’ll feel better. It helps me. It can help you too. Peace and Love
All is Light is just basically the painting I was working on when I was processing everything following the attacks. It is currently available @ Tresor Gallery 1000 Royal St. in the French Quarter. Contact them if you are interested in the painting as well as my other work. http://www.tresorgallery.com (504) 309-3991
Halloween was indeed fun hearing that the Cat Gals from The Chateau would be dropping by to say hello and see my work at The Tresor Gallery in the French Quarter. Isibella (blonde beauty between me and the portrait of her) is a frequent visitor to New Orleans. This is the first time though we were able to meet and I was able to show her and her sexy kitties my work. If your were interested in finding out more about Isibella and her many adventures check out here youtube channel littleskylark as well as the The Chateau page it’s borderline NSFW I think
Excited for Halloween? Me too! I will be live painting Thursday the 22nd from 6-9 @ Tresor Gallery 811 Royal St. In the bloody heart of the French Quarter. All costumed attendees will receive an original sketch from yours truly for Tricks or Treats.
My work went up in both locations of Tresor Gallery this passed weekend. The 811Royal St. location in the French Quarter has my Dollfaces and the 1000 block location on Royal St. is exhibiting some larger pieces. I am very delighted. This is my favorite gallery in New Orleans and fits my work very well. So please visit the gallery and enjoy all the amazing artists both local and international represented there. They don’t have me up yet on the website, but please go check it out @ http://www.tresorgallery.com
