Here's a little show and tell.... I was commissioned to make this storybook-looking watercolor painting of NeNe reading from the book "Go To Sleep, Wig." :) The finished painting will be in a nursery and I absolutely love that idea. If anyone has a commission request, please hit me up and I'll give you a quote. Thanks!
Yesterday I body painted this lovely lady for a music video in downtown LA and nabbed this pic from her instagram @sarahsandin. Love the symmetry of Sarah (with her yet-to-be-painted hands) in the center and then those luscious LUSCIOUS chichis in the lower right corner. #motorboat
I've been an especially busy painter of late. I'm working on a collection of paintings all based on body paint shoots I've done. The jumping off point is referencing a pose, sometimes exaggerating it or altering that original shot slightly..... you know, artistic license and all. But the essence is drawn from a body paint photo. As with these two paintings, I used the exact pose and colors from the body paint session on the canvases here. The black lines were inspired by other shoots I've done. My model for these is a very accomplished photographer named Dylan Rosser who photographs undressed men beautifully. Here are those paintings.
These are both 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas and this one is available. Speaking of artistic license, Dylan's nose is nowhere nearly this long but being the proud owner of a large nose myself, I often times get a bit carried away when depicting that body part. What can I say, I like big noses.
You can see Dylan's work here but be forewarned, It's full male nudity. You're welcome.
This is Teresa from the RHONJ at that retreat/ therapy thingy and this is the exact moment when her bulldog-shaped brother called her scum. Which triggered her bulldog-shaped husband to attack. The whole thing went just swimmingly.
I give you "snow bunny" Vicki from the OC Housewives on the slopes of Whistler, BC Canada. This was seconds after she screamed that her cast mate Lauri was "A piece of trash!!!!!!!!!!!!!" That octave-defying screech certainly caused at least five avalanches. #slapmefordrawingthis
Anyone who has travelled the troubled water of drag on a dime knows the dirty secret of Wet N Wild makeup and it's permanently locked in the 80s color palette. It's sold at that high-end makeup retailer RiteAid. :) Having used it, I can honestly say it's pure crap. When I saw this lovely creature from The Real Housewives of NJ and her dazzlingly made up mug I thought she could be the new face of Wet N Wild. Not sure if there's an old face of that product line....... Anyway, her name is Jennifer and she's friend (?) to warring sisters in law Teresa and Melissa. Jennifer has a magical face that's been pulled and filled and frozen with such abandon that it defies being categorized. Is she 25.... 45.... 65.... an inuit..... asian...... white....... black......????? Whatever she is, she had my full attention while I was guzzling wine and eating dark chocolate. RHONJ, as long as you supply faces like hers, then I'll continue to watch.
I give you Rosie from The Real Housewives of New Jersey during her booze-fueled meetup with Teresa. I believe this was after her third, filled to the rim, glass of whiskey. They met to argue over some family drama shit that if it were to be ever settled, then the show would come to a screeching halt. Bravo ought to stop with the pretense of referring to this as a reality show and call it what it really is..... a poorly-acted, overly-produced, scripted-drama. My apologies to Rosie for this depiction... I really do enjoy her. #slapmefordrawingthis
