I just hung some paintings at souk. They look great against the brick walls if I do say so myself! I created this series of painted panels after Anie had a few weeks of intense dreams. I had to catalogue the imagery she would share in darkest parts of the night. On a side note…I’m convinced that sleep deprivation is a child’s means of parental mind control. On the other hand…even though it’s mind-numbingly painful, kid dreams do make great fodder for subject material.
This piece, Little Bug, 2008, isn’t hanging at souk because it sold but it’s one of my favorite of the group.
Here are the rest of the paintings in the series. The girls are painted with acrylic on alder wood panels, découpaged embellished prints of 16th century woodcuts and sealed in clear encaustic paint.
