This painting was sold in a local gallery. When the owner told me who bought it, I was shocked to find that I actually new the proud new owner: Her mother used to babysit my sister and I when we were younger, and we grew up knowing each other's families.

Here are two of my Buddha paintings (both of which have sold)...
This was a custom painting for a friend of a friend. I was given the color scheme and told the recipient liked buddhas... This is what I came up with. It's hard to see, but the white "lightning" marks are cracks throughout the coating.
This painting is another one of my first paintings (2003); it was taken from a picture that one of my cousins took of a buddha statue.

My clown obsession continues...
Cloaked in Corked Therapy - my depiction of the affects of alcohol (specifically, wine, in this one). Wine can have many affects on us - make us silly and happy, like a clown... She's waving with her right hand, foot up on the side of the glass - totally basking in the wine. And it can also make us lustful (see how she's puckered up)... But there's a tear on her cheek (for depression) & she's crossing her fingers, hoping no one will see what's really going on inside.......
