12 Chinas

China Machado is fierceness personified.
For those who might not be familiar with China, here's an excerpt from a wonderful W Magazine article on her:

At age 19, China Machado ran away with the most famous bullfighter in the world. What followed that impulsive decision was a charmed life of mystique and chic: She modeled for the great couture houses of Paris and then made fashion history as the first non-Caucasian face to grace a major American magazine.

Read More here.

China's timeless beauty and grace was the inspiration for a recently completed 12-piece commissioned series.

Naughty Bits

Because there's just not enough of me blabbing or posting images throughout the web, I've created yet another blog (quit your groans).

The new blog is called Naughty Bits and I hope many of you will join me there as well.

Naughty Bits Welcome Post:

Dear Readers,

Welcome to "Naughty Bits".
I created this blog to share my new series of Erotic Pop paintings. I have chosen to do so through a separate blog rather than post them on The Gascot Method to give supporters of my Latin Pop work the choice of keeping up with these works or not as I realize that erotic art is not everyone's cup of tea. For those who want to follow both blogs, but might read The Gascot Method from work, you will have the choice to view this series from home rather than have any NSFW imagery interrupt your lunchtime blog-reading. LOL.

Either way, I hope many will follow and enjoy (comments are always welcome). I plan to have a lot of fun with this body of work!

"Piano & Sax" featured on Literacyhead.com

From the Literacyhead website:

What is a Literacyhead?

A Literacyhead is someone who is intensely serious about exercising creative literacy, making connections across multiple literacies, pursuing thoughtful literacy as an individual and as a teacher, and constantly searching for ideas. Literacyheads may have expertise in different areas of literacy, but all are committed to children's literacy, passionate about the arts, incessant thinkers, and display a propensity for having fun.

My work is being used as a teaching tool (to teach the word "practice") in the article Visual Vocabulary .

The original Piano & Sax painting is currently available through Singing Stone Gallery in Tampa, FL.

River's Journey

Earlier this year, while looking for something in the attic, I came across a stack of 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" wooden squares. Seeing potential in them, I immediately brought them down into the studio. Each day, from behind my easel, I see them up on the shelf, patiently waiting to be included in the fun.
A few months ago I decided to paint Mexican tile designs on them, but that idea quickly fizzled away. Last week, while working on a 12-piece Pop Art commission, I reached for one of the squares to help break up the repetitiveness of the project at hand. Here is the result:
