Couple pics of my favorite painting from a new series they’re super high gloss so don’t photograph that well. 12″ x 36″ Left panel of a triptych. Was going to have another show in November but I got super sick and had some other stuff happen so I decided to cancel. Plus I don’t really like to do that whole conceptual thing anyway. Already had five shows hanging for a total of nine months and plan on submitting to a juried show at Core New Art space this week. So we shall see what happens.
Took me forever to find an actual poppy to add to this piece. I made it with the intention of giving it to someone super special to me. But as with so many things in life I didn’t have the chance. So I’m sharing it with the world and hanging it on my wall. As a reminder to never forget the moments we shared and how she made me feel. And to just be happy that I found one person I could actually let in and talk to without judgement, that made me happy, comfortable and safe. Whole again and like a real person. A connection I’ve never had and know I’ll never have again. And even though I thought she would always be there I couldn’t be thankful enough for the time we shared.

“Lucky” the Pripyat Rabbit
Born from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear reactor accident when an explosion and fire released massive quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere over the nearby of Pripyat. The resulting fallout mixed with leftover parts of rabbits slaughtered for their feet on the killing floor of the towns ‘Lucky U’ rabbit foot company. According to legend, on certain nights when the moon is at the right angle and the winds howl “Number 4″ as he’s known by locals can be heard from the abandon city feasting on stray cats and thumbs downing YouTube videos of Yakov Smirnoff.
Had this idea while I was working on pieces for my show “Vanity” at Studio Salon. Due to time restraints I never got to see it through, but since this week has been pretty miserable I thought I would bang out a quick illustration to see how it looks. Pretty awesome.
