Stealing For A Cause

As you may or may not know, much of my work is not something people would like to have in their home.  I was asked to do a painting for an auction benefit for Kris Woodyard.  She's an old friend of Christina's who is fighting cancer and a great lady with two kids.  IF you would like to own this painting, the auction is at the Palm valley Golf Club, Sunday Feb 10.  Here is the facebook page.  I decided a painting was my best bet.   I looked up "Funny still life" online and I came across the great photographs of Terry Border

Thinking along these lines, I made a little composition of my own and did an alla prima painting one a piece of wood last night.  I wanted to be sure to acknowledge him for the inspiration.  I worked so fast, I forgot to take process pictures.  It's been a long time since I have done a still life, and probably the first still life I've done in acrylic.  I was also on the fence as to whether I was going to post about this, but I figured I should post about it to promote the auction.    I don't know why he's looking at the personals, but he seems a little lonely.
Next week: back to the tongue


  1. Your work looks really nice! The subject itself has its own humor that everybody would appreciate. I guess it would be great if the lucky winner would give it to the patient. At the very least, they could make her happy even just for a while. Anyway, are things doing now?
