My newest painting is titled “PUNK PANTHER”. I was chosen by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Punk Forefront as one of 5 featured artist to do a piece for the PUNK FOREFRONT fund raiser party and art show at The Yucca Tap Room in Tempe Az.. I wanted to tie the two companies together and came up with a fun punk panther image with patches and buttons one being PBR. I wanted to do this painting in the color pallet of pinks, purples and reds because they are currently featuring a couple amazing all female punk rock bands and I wanted it to be a little girly and also play off of the word “Pink Panther”. This painting goes along with a series that I started years ago called “A BREED OF THEIR OWN”. Its an ongoing series about animals with human personas. I am extremely happy with the way this painting turned out. I had done another Punk Rock animal painting which was titled ” PUNK ROCK ZEBRA” and I wanted the viewer to see the juxtaposition of the two so I used the zebra print collar to tie them to each other. This was a fun painting to do even though it was a close call to complete in time. The painting was definitely hanging with wet paint at the event but luckily nobody bumped into it. I am not sure when this series will end because I keep thinking up new ones so stay tuned for the next one.
