New Painting

Ma Petit Femme, oil on canvas, 24"x18"


I just finished and signed this painting today. I'm going in a new direction with my paintings about war. The idea is, if we in the USA had to put up with the violence that's plaguing Iraq, Afghanistan, and dozens of other places, what would it look like here? Well, being devout capitalists, we'd capitalize on it, of course! So here's what an ad for fine leather accessories might look like. (And for those who forgot their high-school French, "ma petit femme" means "my little woman" ... now, are you gonna say that to an elegant lady toting an automatic rifle? Me neither.)

really like this new piece, skip. i think the less 'literal' war subject matter/figure is appealing and works well. hope you're doing well!
