I just completed these 4 pieces for the Marco Fuoco Gallery's Animal & Environmental Show. These are painted doodles done in acrylic & ink. The top 2 are remakes of old folk art paintings I did in the past that I think are fun. The bottom 2 were done specifically for the show in protest, disgust and sorrow due to the current oil disaster. To me it's not a "spill" and it infuriates me when the media calls it a "spill". Ok I won't get started, work myself up, then start crying again. I actually started crying when I was painting the flamingos. They get their beautiful color from the shrimp & planktin, I painted them black and I painted the pink part in their bodies to reflect their emptiness, as well as mine.
Big Shout Out goes to "Whatshername" for featuring my new mermaid doodle in her very cool Etsy Treasury!
