20x16" oil on canvas, PURCHASE INFORMATION
I just learned that this piece was accepted into the juried San Diego Regional Show at The Museum Of The Living Artist and it received an Honorable Mention award! Woo-Hoo! I'm so proud and just a little stunned. I thought twice or maybe three times about entering this painting because it is just a bit controversial. But I decided that, for decades, the best artists (and not just the commercially succesful ones) have stood up to shine a light on issues that make the public uncomfortable. I think it's in the job description. No question that I paint my share of quirky and whimsical pieces so an occasional painting to make you stop and think seems appropriate. If you'd like to see it in person along with many other works from San Diego's gifted artists, drop by the show's opening on this Friday, 12/12 from 6-8pm. The show will hang through January 25.
