Among Friends

Not to imply that I might be ADD, but my creative process usually involves working on at least 3 pieces simultaneously. While exploring word art for my #ExposingStupid series and creating hair-themed works for my upcoming show Hair, I have also continued to paint in my signature Latin Pop style. Here is the latest, which I finished just last week.

Word Play

There are so many forms of art out there that I love and respect yet never allow myself to create. When I do give myself cautious permission, I don't share the work and later destroy it. Well it's a new year with lots of exciting possibilities in the horizon and like Miss Patti Labelle, I've got a NEW ATTITUDE! Let the word-play begin.

Don't be a Dick, acrylic, collage and ink on canvas, 11" x 14"
