I started this piece some time ago, and just left it hanging in my room…unfinished, just staring at me with those evil eyes of hers.
This wooden panel was an experiment on my part, I wanted to dilute my acrylic paints and did so with water, and it worked out pretty great on her skin tone. On the next batch of red, I added a bit less of water, giving me the perfect hue to contour her cheek bones and nose.
What girl isn’t all about contour these days?
The split on top of the canvas was actually already there, which came to play when deciding on what to actual paint. Talk about making things work the way you want it to!\
This baby is for sale… even though I kind of don’t want to let her go. I named her after Socrates’s wife, Xanthippe. Such a gorgeous name, for such a furious spirit.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to an art show, May to be exact (see that post HERE). It may not seem that far to you guys, but when your favorite past time involves networking with fellow artist friends, 4 months seems like a long time. I usually end up meeting with long time friend Phil, which is always great and we end up catching up on each other’s lives.
Street art has always caught my eye (especially since I come from a graffiti background) and Clarence Rich happened to do it just right. “The Bride” which is Frankenstein’s wife (above) was one of my favorite canvas works that happened to be there. She was posted right next to her hubby (which I failed to show you guys, sorry). Sourdzo and brother killed it on the stage, while Phil and I decided to hit a few books, that weren’t necessarily black. You know me, drawing boobs everywhere.
Goodnight, good vibes.
