Remember when I shared the above photo? When I went dot crazy? There was a very good reason for it…

 

It all started when my friend Nicole and I were at The Broad Museum in downtown L.A. While looking at the incredible collection of Lichtensteins, we came up with the idea to make our own Lichtenstein-like works. (For the record, Nicole swears this was my idea. I don’t remember that at all, but the girl is very truth-y, so I’m inclined to take her at her word. Besides, it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve forgotten something that came out of my own pie-hole.)

 

Anyhoo – we started tackling our respective paintings. And I absolutely love the fact that we took very different approaches. Whereas I used stickers to achieve my desired effect, Nicole has been using a stencil. (And I have got to tell you – her results are looking fab-o!) Because she’s a jet-setter and was unavailable for a while, I got in a bit more studio time than her and have finished my painting.

 

Let me repeat that, louder: I FINISHED MY PAINTING!

 

Now – before I share the result, I want you to know a few things… I’m sharing this painting before it’s sealed, which is something I rarely do. Sealing makes the colors pop, and I look forward to that, when it comes to pass, in a couple of months. Also – if you are lacking in the humor department, well, too bad for you. Because this painting is meant to be funny. Twisted, sure. But funny nonetheless. Ready? Here it is…

 

 

I had so much fun with this piece and may start another freakshow work. Maybe. For now, I’m just tickled over this one.
