Neon Bird Skeletons 10x20 original painting
You can call this series of paintings my Black Period- all done in between October 31st and November 5 2020- the longest week of the longest year. I got quite a bit done on November 4th... I was painting butterflies. The world as we know it has ended 8 months ago, the pandemic is killing us (in more ways than one), democracy is on the verge of extinction, my mother has died and I am painting butterflies. I have also been working on custom pieces. My initial inspiration on these was the black canvas itself- and to have small pieces you could kinda pick off of until Christmas. I may transfer these ideas to belt buckle pieces- (yes that may happen) painting like this keeps my juices flowing and gives me a safe space to retreat to.
