I think it is fair to say that the majority of my paintings fall into a pretty general and obvious category – CUTE. It seems that whatever I’m painting – cupcakes, critters, ice cream cones, dinos, space ships, trees, cakes, pop culture references, etc. – things usually end being brightly colored and super cute. That being said, sometimes I don’t want to paint happy cupcakes or smiling giraffes. As an artist, I long for the freedom to explore and experiment with emotional expression and different types of media. Sometimes the result of all that soul-searching isn’t adorable at all. It can be dark, but it can also be liberating.
That is exactly how my “Art Therapy” paintings were created. I created a pair of paintings that are unlike anything I have ever done before that are full of emotion and turmoil. This particular mixed media piece is titled “Love Drove Me Crazy, Art Made Me Sane” and measures 2’x3′ (24″x36″). It is available for purchase for $285 (+shipping).
