a magnificent compliment
5" x 7"
mixed media on fiberboard
Before starting this new venture of selling my artwork via the internet I sent a few "test runs" to specific recipients. I wanted to make sure they traveled well around the country, and also use them to get valuable feedback from fellow artists I admire. One such recipient was my friend Bob, fellow Colorado College alum and masterful painter. I knew he would like this piece, as it is a favorite of mine, but the compliment he gave me upon receiving it absolutely made my week so I wanted to go ahead and share it. Here goes:
"...I applaud you. They're fucking fantastic and I'm honored to have one. They're like your college stuff but older, fuller, more mature (like us!), so you. Personally I love the mixture of leaf, body, and owl. A lot of your pictures have made me feel uneasy, sexy, humorous, and refined, all at once. This is no different. I love how the owl peaks out. Thank you again. And the heels. I love her heels."
