here's the latest

Been a while, huh?

Here's the latest!

I painted this elephant one night while hanging out with my boyfriend in the living room, watching netflix.  No plan whatsoever. Then I posted it on facebook, a friend wanted to buy it, then she got it framed and BOOM! A legit piece of art. How do ya like that?!

I did this painting of Courtney Love about 2 weeks ago.  I didn't intend for it to be a particularly unflattering portrait.  I actually had a super lot of fun painting this. I didn't really care how it came out and I ended up splattering paint all over it after I thought I was finished. I felt really liberated. (Admittedly I was listening to Nirvana on my headphones while painting this and I think they had a lot to do with how it came out. It was a symbiotic relationship.)
