Put my Vagina on Your Coffee Table

I'm very excited to announce that my vagina (painting) will be displayed on coffee tables across the country. One of my paintings has been published in the fabulous new book Gay Men Draw Vaginas.

That is all.

Painting Sold and a Quick Shop Small Reminder

I hope everyone had a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
Today (Black Friday) began wonderfully. I awoke to an email telling me that my painting, Coffee Break, sold. Yay!

In addition, I would like to remind everyone to shop small this weekend (and holiday season). Chain store gifts are wonderful, but including some independent artist items in your gift-giving doesn't just help our economy; it supports working artists.

Browse my Latin Pop Shop Etsy store. Also keep in mind, that I welcome commissions.

Coffee Label Entry No. 2

Here is my second entry for Joffrey's Coffee Art of the Label (Indonesia) contest, Morning Zen.
I have painted a number of Buddhas in the past and people seem to really respond to them. This particular guy is holding a cup, keeping in the theme of the contest, but I am taking orders for commissioned "personalized" Buddhas. You choose colors and what he's holding. Most will hold a lotus but you can pick a different type of flower...or a heart... The paintings measure 11" x 14". They are gallery wrapped with painted edges and ready to hang. $195 each (Free Shipping).

Coffee Label Contest Entry #1

Joffrey's Coffees & Teas, with whom I recently exhibited at their Art of the Roast event in Tampa, FL, searches the planet for single-origin coffees to share with their fans. They introduce a new Origin Coffee quarterly each year. Joffrey's is currently holding a contest for artwork to be featured on the label of their first ever Artist Edition coffee...Indonesia.

Getting my head around the fact that what I am creating is not a typical Gascot painting, but something that starts there but should be flexible enough to use as a graphic was a bit tricky at first. There were spaces of the canvas I wanted to fill with intricate embellishments, but am editing my entries to offer colorful detail that still leaves room for company branding. With this entry I took inspiration from the country's traditional masks.

Stay tuned for another one or two (three?) entries and keep your fingers crossed for me.
