Aleutian Collaboration w/ Traughber

This was a collaborative effort with my friend Michelle. She is an awesome artist, and my contribution to this piece was pretty much just me being thrilled about the fluidity of paint pens on acrylic on masonite.

This painting lives in one of the most remote native populations in the world.

Magnolia cafe South Austin

I did this mural on Christmas eve and worked for about 20 hours straight while the business was closed. Mural wraps around entire interior. Not in "Heaven", but should be.

Monkeys in Space

Acrylic on canvas 36"x36"

I did this painting for a friend. She wanted something that the family could enjoy. I asked her what elements she wanted in the painting and she told me, "monkeys, rockets and cupcakes."

Resides in Austin.

Soldier ("detailed" view)

I uploaded this painting with its sister painting a few posts back. This version lends more clarity to the image.

Lamb and Knife

Mixed media on masonite

Approx 42"Wx56"H

Some of my earlier paintings have what would look like "tagging", but in actuality it isn't. I went through a phase where I attempted to use symbols that would represent words- so that I could insert secret messages into my paintings. Of course, like the language of twins... it was lost over time. I can still understand some of my cryptic scrawling, but I am the only one. Don't even bother trying. Like I said... it isn't english- It's an incompetent code.

War Horse

Acrylic and enamel on canvas. Approx 50"Wx36"H

This painting is a good example of a phase I go through with almost all of my works. A constant reworking and almost tumbling into the final product is how I paint. Many times, I do not set out with a concept, and can often end in a place very far from where the first strokes leave me. One painting will sometimes be 1000 destroyed paintings by the time is is completed. It is both a satisfying and frustrating process for me. All of my mistakes are yelling at me to be fixed, and that never seems to end. This painting ended in a high energy phase- but if I were to be standing in front of it right now- it would most definitely be screaming at me to fix it.

I have friends who are still angry with me for taking my art from their homes, changing it, and returning it.

I think she is in "Heaven" as well. I need to verify this.

Whites Will Bleed

Acrylic on canvas. Approx 50"WX36"H

This painting is depicting a battle on a war torn coast.

The photo quality on many of these pictures will be lacking. I apologize for this in advance.

Word from your mother!

Hello. I have had a couple of online galleries, photo hosting sites, and even a mac.com address over the years to share my art. I don't have the time or resources to spend on an elaborate website, and decided that for now, Blogger will work. I don't necessarily think that the format is ideal, but beggars can't be choosers. I have a pretty hefty amount of work to upload, and will try to tag them appropriately so that in the end- there is some kind of reference point for finding works rather than having to scroll through an entire blog. -Claire
