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.

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 […]
