Silence of the Lambs

Silence of the Lambs

  This drawing is in response to the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Act. What a lovely title. It almost makes you feel like they’ve done something to make politicians less corrupt. What they’ve really done is tell you who you can support and how much you can give them. Don’t be fooled by the tripe […]

The Hold-Up Artist

Working Title: Give Me your Money, ‘cause I can’t sell my work otherwise This painting was inspired by a conversation I had with a performance artist one day. The general idea was that we, as artists, have a right to ‘expose’ people to our art who would not seek it out themselves. Of course, that comes […]

Sometimes, it’s disappointing when you get accepted to a show.

I’m not complaining, but I am a little dumb-founded. First, the good news – I was accepted to the Pen Women show coming up in August. The confusing part – the piece they chose. I submitted a sculpture and two paintings. They chose the sculpture; the least complex and challenging of the artwork. It just […]
