Skateboard Painting/Design

For a next assignment I decided to approach a different type of canvas...
I took a child skateboard that I had, took all of the residue of the old design off and applied my own imagination to it.
The painting is of an octopus coming out of an abstract ocean.
This is the piece that follows "Carnival Chimera", this is the second piece of my circus freaks painting series (just for fun)
Instead of painting "the bearded lady" I thought it would be interesting to paint a lioness..
This painting is supposed to be sort of eerie, but also very majestic.

Finished Buddha

this is the picture of the final product of the past shown Buddha painting. The Background turned out to be a tad bit different than what I was originally planing on doing. Instead of painting on the different mantras I left if pure red, either way I like the final result.

This is a small print that I made last year for T.O.T.A (Taste Of The Arts)
this was part of a big collaborative print that was in form of the alphabet that was put up for auction the night of T.O.T.A.


This is one of the pictures of the finished Buddha piece. This shows how this piece was being developed and in some sections you can see some measurements. I will post a picture of how it looks finished soon.

Carnival Chimera

Carnival chimera is the result of the last mentioned project. This is the official cool color creature in a warm environment. I have recently been fascinated by over seas cultures and the history behind the masks in their cultures.
I have decided to make this a beginning to a great series. I will be painting "freaks" in circuses and carnivals, in an attempt to illustrate their magnificence and pain.

Into the Ice

Into the Ice is my second painting of the year, as you can tell it is not like any other polar bear known to man. This is a representation of a hybrid that I drew out my Junior year.
This year I made some modifications and finally painted the subject. I was going to turn it in as an assignment (Create a cool color creature and put it in a warm environment) but I changed my mind and turned it in as a personal piece.

Symbolic Lifeline

Symbolic Lifeline was my first senior painting.
It is an analogous color class assignment, I used
the reds oranges and complimentary colors.
I have recently been interested in a combination
of animalistic human figures... Or Hybrids.
Since I symbolism is what I like to do I took on
the topic of maternity and a version of the origin
of life.

Piece inspired by "What comes first. The chicken? Or the egg?"
