These are the 5 paintings (all of which are about 3 by 4 ft.) I completed for my last semester at WVU. I really worked my ass off night and day to get these paintings and a whole new body of work. Each one took about 80 to 100 hours to complete and all of them are on sale (email me if interested at email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org)
My paintings are a tangible representation of my passion for music and the iconic artists who have most impacted my life. Many people define their spirituality in traditional and accepted terms. They find solace and comfort in time-honored customs. For me however, music has always been the vessel that allows me to feel connected to a higher plane. Music gives me inspiration, it brings me peace and it is the catalyst that fuels my desire to create. In my latest body of work, I have incorporated the universal religious imagery of stained glass to depict the sacred status of some of my greatest musical influences. By fusing the techniques of caricatures, cartooning and real life portraiture I hope to demonstrate the immense impact that these musical legends have had on my life.
