In the week between our November and December Pocket Vinyl tours last year, I was hard at work completing the Kickstarter rewards we’d promised our backers that had helped us release our recent album, Death Anxiety. A lot of people had asked for paintings as their rewards, and, pressed for time, there were actually two days where I painted straight and pulled off 14 completed paintings! It was exhausting, but sometimes you just have to do 13-hour work days. Now, three months later, I finally have the time to post those pieces. These are the 6″x6″ oil paintings done on gessoed masonite board:
a) “A mouse and a bear that represent our cats. The mouse should be petting the bear.”
b) “Exactly like the horse painting you did during a show, but without the woman’s body attached.”
c) “Our cat, playing a banjo.”
d) “Something to do with bees.”
By the way, I’m currently taking commissions and if you’re interested in a painting of this size, the cost is $50, plus shipping & packaging.
