Recovery Room (Self-Portrait as Margot Tenenbaum) painting is finished, also there was an article written up about my work on Dashburst!

Here is the link to the article, http://dashburst.com/pic/self-portraits-kurt-cobain-courtney-love/

I will be planning out my next character painting, it’s going to be on a smaller canvas, so I’m having trouble picking in my mind, so I’m going to look through my reference photos, not sure why I try to mentally figure things out when I can just go through all my files and make decisions.

So the first painting in my series of Female Protagonists in Film is complete, it is titled Green Line Bus where I am posed as Margot Tenenbaum from the Wes Anderson film, The Royal Tenenbaums. This painting was taken of course from the screenshot scene of Margot walking off the Green Line Bus in NYC meeting Richie, also this is my favorite scene in the entire film, so it makes sense as to why I chose it.

Anyway, I wanted to pay homage to the green line, so that is why the background is made up of green lines and I chose a particular stripe pattern for the lines that mimic Margot’s dresses she is seen wearing throughout the film. Items featured in the painting of my own are altered of which are the coat that’s actually suede with a fur collar and the barrette which is modeled after my white and gold heart-shaped Hole barrette. The shirt underneath the coat was taken from my striped tank top.

Alright that was a lot of explaining, but there’s more. As you can see I am staring the viewer straight in the eye, whereas in the film Margot is looking in the direction I call Stage Left, I changed this because I always want the viewer to be confronted, I want you to know that she is looking at you and be able to have a mental conversation with her or try to interpret what this painting means to you, if that makes sense. I mean I know what it means to me and the whole of the collection, but I believe each person out there will have a unique experience with each work and whatever that is, I am completely interested in knowing and allowing it to happen.

So I have been sick for 2 weeks now, well it will be 3 and its been awful trying to get myself to make art. Yesterday I finally got the energy to go to the gym and make a Christmas card that needed to be sent out this week before the USPS halts delivery for the holidays. Today I have spent time uploading images of my work to my official tumblr page so all can be reblogged by my followers and lurkers. I may do the same for my pintrest, not sure yet.

I will say updating the internet with my art and actually making the Christmas card has given me a boost amongst this art funk that happens every time I have a break. I have concluded that breaks are bad for me, and that after graduation I need some job that requires a lot of artistic working. Laying around in bed all day is not my ideal lifestyle.

Also I have a pile of FREE paintings I am GIVING away, PRO BONO, email me if you want to pick one out, I also have artwork for sale. All of the Doll Paintings, the Courtney Love/Kurt Cobain paintings, Katy Perry Painting, Cakes In The Ballroom painting, and Sylvia Plath paintings are all for sale. The prices vary, so if you are interested and have enough dinero, shoot me an email. They are for sale obviously because I cannot display them and should decorate the walls of people who love them, its a shame for them to sit in storage (my room). Also I have book art pieces for sale, if you buy a book arts piece they are all installations, I can give instructions on how to properly display them.

I will have a HQ photos of the paintings installed later this week. I will be taking a pictures before the show to have a nice clean photo without the blue tape on the walls. 🙂

Also my friend Brianna mentioned how you could see my paintings from the window at night, so I went and snapped a photo of what that looks like!

Here are the last three paintings to the Doll Paintings I started months ago. Took me forever because I will admit my motivation is at a zero for painting right now, Im in a reading and writing kind of mood lately and video editing, so all my other art is taking forever to do because Im kind of pooped out. Anyway here are the paintings and some other photos.

Also I forgot that I posted a new video on my vimeo called “The Three Stages of Grief” starring my some of my best guy friends ever, Reed, Jacob, John and Roberto! Thanks Guys!!!! 🙂 Click Here To See All My Videos.

Enjoy all the new art!!!!!!
