Thin Skin

BEFORE BREENING


AFTER BREENING

Text says, ‘A little bird told Maddie not to skate on my thin skin.’ The owl says, “Don’t mention his man boobs.”

I kept the shape of the owl and girl, generally, and kept the owls eyes. The snowy environment became my body, thin skinned and full of cracks. The owl looked muscular so I gave him human skin. I have this recurrent feeling when I eat chicken that I feel like a cannibal – chicken legs look human, at least the skin. I tried different things on the girls face, none of which I liked. The painting just got scarier and scarier, like it usually does. I decided to give it a big eye, to soften it a little, but it still came out with an edge. I left the hand a different color from the face, because, when I get a hand right, I generally leave it alone.

Flame Bass

BEFORE BREENING

AFTER BREENING
Text says, ‘In Aqua Hell Flame Bass Is Eaten Over + Over!’ Acrylic on 12″X16″ big mouth billy bass animatronic fish. The fish moves and sings ‘take me to the river’ and ‘don’t worry, be happy!’

I found this billy bass in Rowley the other day and revisited an old favorite theme that I’ve done before. I think this is my 3rd flame bass, although I’ve done a couple of other billy basses. This flame bass is unique in that I undercoated it with black, which makes the scales look charred, and the flames are going sideways. I also added some blue flame to this one. To see this bass in action, download the movie HERE.
