I tell myself each year that I will create and offer holiday greeting cards and each year the holidays come and go before I can even get started...well it's finally happening!

Holiday Diva 2010 is the first Gascot pop art holiday greeting card.
Each folding collectible/artist-signed card will measure 5" x 7". Packs of 10 cards/10 envelopes are now available for pre-order from Latin Pop Shop. Orders will begin shipping in early November. Production on these cards will be limited.

Prince Inspiration Week Pt 5

This piece, painted a few years back, was also inspired by the line "Every day is a yellow day. I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard." from Prince's ballad Condition of the Heart.

Prince Inspiration Week Pt. 4

Jazz Trio
acrylic on canvas/11x14"/sold

This painting is available as a print.

I ended up naming this piece Jazz Trio, but it was actually painted while I listened to the song Musicology incessantly.

Prince Inspiration Week Pt. 3

She said, Love me...

Joy in Repetition
acrylic on canvas/24x36"/original sold

This painting is available as a print.

The movie Graffiti Bridge might have been a box office flop and little more than a corny-at-best overblown music video, but the soundtrack included some very good songs like The Question of U, the hit Thieves in The Temple and my all time favorite Prince song...Joy in Repetition.

Prince Inspiration Week Pt. 2

Every day is a yellow day.
I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard.

inspired by Condition of The Heart
acrylic on canvas/16x20"

This painting was inspired by Condition of The Heart, arguably one of Prince's most beautiful and melodramatic ballads, from the album Around The World in a Day.

Prince Inspiration Week Pt.1

Music is as much a part of my creative process as are paint and canvas. Walk into my studio during work hours and you will be greeted by a variety of rhythms, vocals and musical styles. R&B, Pop, Electronica, Salsa, Jazz...each inspires me in its own unique manner.

Unless you're new to this blog, you probably know by now that for better or worse...brilliant or just downright out-there and kooky, I am a huge Prince fan.
This week I'll post a few paintings (some new, some not so new) that were inspired by the music of the Great Purple One.

inspired by Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife
acrylic on canvas/18x24"

This painting is also available as a print.

Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife, is an amazing ballad from Prince's 1996 triple album Emancipation. The song is one of several in the album which celebrates his then-wife, the beautiful Mayte Garcia, and their union.
