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.

Small World.

Buddha Nature

Here are two of my Buddha paintings (both of which have sold)...

Psychadelic Zen
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.

Cloaked in Corked Therapy

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.......

Ma Chérry

"Ma Chérry" like "ma chérie" in French... [translation: "my darling"]
