My Xmas Card

This will likely be the last piece I post for the year, as I go on hiatus (Stop complaining, you! I was thinking of stopping last Friday!) until the New Year. I wish you all the best and a very happy holidays, and let's just hope that 2013 is a little bit brighter than 2012. And if the sun explodes in two days during the Mayan Apocalypse..then at least 2012 got a whole lot brighter right there at the end.

So I leave you with my Christmas card for the lovely alligator on a bicycle...

Audrey Horne

I recently rewatched the pilot for Twin Peaks, an lamented the fact that it was far too ahead of it's time. Had it been made in today's current TV climate, it probably would've gone on for six season and a movie. However, one can't be too sure that today's shows would've existed without it, as Twin Peaks revived the dying one hour drama format. 

In any event, it naturally reminded me of my teenage crush on the lovely Sherilyn Fenn who played the playfully diabolical Audrey Horne in the series. She was the perfect segue between 50's pin-up beauty and wicked charm. The character was a stand out in the series who managed to showcase determined independence with just the right moments of tender vulnerability...see...there I go again, crushing on nostalgia.

A Dame of Danger

Playing around in the gouache, I came up with a throwback to the days of pulp paperbacks and eye-popping poster art in this treatment of my friend, the lovely and talented Ver Mar.

To The Future...

My latest painting in gouache, which is currently on display at the Hive gallery in downtown Los Angeles for the month of December.
