Okay I admit it, I mainly did this to have a cool new profile picture on Facebook. I've yet to have a real, current photo for my profile. I have a thing about it. I never liked creating a voicemail message with my voice, either. I guess I like a certain amount of anonymity.
I do admire David Bowie and loved the composition of the album cover Aladdin Sane, which this is obviously stolen from. I think I want to do more white backgrounds because that's what excited me most about this.

Sandra Flood's work, which I love.

Anyone that lives here knows that Austin is funky, in a good way. Any city can have a beautiful building or landscape, but I find those paintings kind of boring. Every once in a while I see something that shows the personality of a place and I just have to jump on it because I often look for that and can't seem to find it.

I thought I'd try something new and painted the canvas bright red and let it dry before starting the painting. I love the effect of the little bits of red showing through and wonder why I never did this before. I feel like a whole new world has opened up and think I'll be experimenting with underpainting for a while.

This is the third one of these kids. I've never met them but I feel as though I know them now. I'm loving painting hair these days. The girl in this painting really likes her accessories, and they make the hair go in multiple directions which keeps things interesting.
