Portrait Of The Artist As Curator Of Technicolor Chaos. And Other Fun Things.


8x8" | acrylic, collage, graphite on canvas | SOLD

This is number 50 of my 50 Saints & Sinners. The last one!

I thought it appropriate to include a self portrait. But you decide if this one goes under the Saints column. Or the Sinners. 

Clue: it depends on the day…⁣

Tweet L. D., Dark Guardian Of The Cretinous Flat Earthers


8x8" | acrylic, collage, graphite on canvas | SOLD

Most of my paintings include a bird somewhere on the canvas--some are more obvious than others. Many are hidden in the scratchy background marks. 


There are several symbols that appear repeatedly in my work: tic-tac-toe games, ladders, chairs, moons, etc. But the bird? Well, he can represent so many things; a versatile little symbol, this guy. And, once upon a time, the only living thing allowed to tweet. 
The good ol’ days.

Morty, Patron Saint And Fiery Director Of Unthinkable Thoughts


8x8" | acrylic, collage, graphite on canvas | sold



My new series is called “Saints & Sinners. The Dirty Little Secrets.” If you have followed along on my blog, you know that I spent many (tortured) years in Catholic school as a kid. ⁣

And one of the most fascinating parts of my Catholic education was learning about all the saints and angels. Especially the saints and angels that took a wrong turn and became sinners (my favorites). ⁣

So I thought it might be a fun and informative project to propose a few of my own Saints. And a bunch of those crafty Sinners!⁣
