"Horned Beast"

"Horned Beast"
18 x 24" / watercolor, acrylic & ink on paper

I was just playing around with watercolors on large sheets of paper, when this image began to take shape. More or less, it's a warm-up sketch gone wild.

Don't let that dazed look in her eyes fool you. This lady's a born killer. And whatever horn-headed creature used to own that skull she's sporting as a hat, the poor beast clearly never stood a chance.

"No escaping the explosion. Those who are dozin', I close in.
Set the thermostat at sub-zero, they're frozen."

"Original Energy"

"Original Energy" / 18 x 24"
watercolor, acrylic & ink on canvas

Here's another new piece for 2013. This one was inspired by a few lines from the Walt Whitman poem, "Song of Myself."

"Bust a Travis Bickle when I feel that I'm getting pushed. Don't step to me, cause you're gonna get mushed."
