When your pets are family, your dogs deserve their own place in the Dia de los Muertos celebrations. This golden chihuahua is wearing a pink and blue sugar skull design for the occasion.
I based this painting on our Siamese cat. His name was Chaos and he was an all around mischief maker. Here he is hanging out in a darkly wooded tree with magical sprites in bright colors floating in the air around him.
Dulce Gato means sweet cat, which sounds better than the Spanish translation for sugar cat. I had been wanting to paint a sugar skull for the Day of the Dead and I prefer to paint cats rather than people, so this was the natural outcome for me. The red and orange colors are exciting, like a celebration, and the little ghosts in the eyes add a touch of mystery. The style of face paint also lends itself to a tribal cat interpretation. I was looking at a Sphynx cat when I painted this but the color reminds me more of an Abyssinian cat.
I've had people who buy this print tell me that they're going to use it as part of a remembrance for their own beloved cat. I couldn't ask for better.
I had previously painted a sugar skull cat, and our dogs felt a little left out. So to give the dogs a voice I painted this sugar skull dog based on one of our own. However his black / blue color and floppy ears make him look just as familiar to many other people. The name is a reference to Hogan the Grim because the dog's face looks so serious.
The pink flowers and swirly designs add a bit of delicacy and decorum to the portrait, which the original subject of this painting unfortunately didn't quite have in real life.
I painted this as a humorous takeoff on Spock and his home planet of Vulcan from Star Trek. Vulcan historically had red oranges skies and lots of pointy rock formations. A true trekkie will hopefully appreciate the sehlat making the Vulcan hand gesture, along with the similarly posed saguaro cactus. The gesture is of course traditionally accompanied by the greeting "Live Long and Prosper". Oddly enough, saguaros are not known to be native to the planet Vulcan, but they are native to my home state of Arizona.
I based this painting on a photo from Discover Magazine, just because I thought it looked interesting. The purple and tan color choices came from the original reference photo. The painting started out as just the angler fish, I hadn't decided yet what the angler would be luring in. When I added in the sea floor, the black water above it reminded me of outer space so the astronaut was a natural addition. By that point of course the painting needed some stars and a ringed planet. It might be Saturn, but it does't have to be. I didn't actually think of the astronaut as Major Tom until the painting was done.
Many of my paintings are dark enough that some people find them disturbing. This painting is a rare example where one of my own paintings actually creeps me out. Just a little.
