I'm not sure why I love adding these rounded bumps onto my work. Some where in Utah or Nevada, or maybe both you can find petroglyphs of abstract grids of dots left behind from the ancient Americans, so I like to believe that I am a reincarnation of a fellow who left behind such symbols.

This collage is to represent the American people protesting against police brutality. America, we have a problem. Good cop or bad cop, we need to recognize that racism remains pervasive today; the evidence is clear, as the American people are being maimed and murdered by those with an abundance of force but a dearth of brotherly love. I thought we were a country that despised Nazis? We need a leader who values humanity rather than encourages divisive behavior.

School Mice, 2020 Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper 9 x 12 inches

These are retirement gifts for two of our school's teachers who have retired this year. I stayed up until 3:00 AM making them. I was a little grouchy the next day. I was going to buy candles, but then decided on making my own gifts believing it wouldn't take that long. During the process, I asked myself I why I didn't just buy candles? I got up the next morning to finish the bunnies. The rest of the day was spent racing around town to find frames, wrap the gifts, and deliver the goods to the correct location. All speeding down the highway to get to Zoom classroom meetings. I think it was all worth it.

A gift for Pete Leon who wonderfully survived cancer.

My favorite part is the Converse shoes, specifically the detail of the stitching. I would love to illustrate shoes for company ads. I think Warhol started out doing that? I can’ t remember. But I do think one of his first pro gigs was illustrating for a shoe ad. I’ll have to research.

MARS BROUGHT HOME the MOON

2018

Acrylic on Canvas

I was given this round canvas by a friend who left for new adventures in another country. I did not know what to do with a round canvas, for heaven’s sake, but I gave it a go. Two years later, my husband started laughing. He said one area of the canvas where paint had been applied abstractly looked like a “flying submarine-cat.” I looked and saw what he meant. It really did look like a cat’s head with neon eyes, sticking out from above a submarine that soared in a sky of dollops. We both got a good laugh from the image, but I also immediately felt the need to paint over and improve the work. Today, I finally went over the calico-colors with some reds and black, also forming some texture.

BELLISSIMO

Photo Transfer and Acrylic on Canvas

This was accepted for an exhibition in 2008. I had been talking to a guy who was a nursing student at the time. My talks with him inspired me to take a photo of him operating a syringe. It might have also been an excuse to see him.

I dropped off this piece at Allied Arts in Downtown OKC before I left for Korea. I don’t even remember the title of the event. I was too lazy to go back and retrieve it. Those days, the economy was crap and I didn’t know what to do with my life. I wonder what happened to this thing.
