A painting of the Hurricane Irma Chainsaw Nun

chainsaw nun hurricane irma meme internet painting etsy

A painting of the Hurricane Irma chainsaw nun.

This acrylic painting on a 16 by 20 inch stretched canvas is painted in an impressionistic style.  It could have much more detail, but life is short and I like it they way it is.  The chainsaw represents faith, as does the nun, the brush behind her, the act of painting, and the very day of the week in which it was posted online-Sunday.  This is a nice painting, devoid of pancakes.  It isn't that I refused to include pancakes; as an act of faith they simply didn't happen. That doesn't mean they do not exist within the image..they may be within the brush or the nun, or perhaps tucked away neatly inside of another oncoming hurricane. The style of this image is very fluid, which is a change of pace from a number of more rigid paintings which I have been developing, most involving Prince.  I have spent most of the past year and a half painting Prince; it has been a journey.

This painting of resolute Christian Faith And Initiative in the face of the merciless calamity of Hurricane Irma as captured in a viral online video become an inspiring internet meme is currently available on Etsy.

Donald And Melania Trump Inauguration Dance Portrait / The Pancake Between Them

A portrait of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump dancing at one of the Presidential Inaugural Balls in January of this year with a pancake between them-

This is meant to be a nice Melania and Donald Trump double portrait.  The pancake suspended in the air between them is merely incidental.

I understand that some people do not like breakfast, therefore, I have posted a pancakeless version of the above painting to my Etsy.

Larger Trump Tower and White House Melania Trump portrait.

This painting was sold on my Etsy last month.  I've used this blog so little in the past few years, relying instead almost exclusively on my twitter and instragram. I'll try to catch up by posting both largely unseen things and newer paintings.

I also still post on Flickr, and less frequently on Tumblr. Here's this same portrait posted on Tumblr.

Thanks to Everlasting Blort for recently featuring this image of the tower reclusive Mrs. Trump.

This painting is currently listed on my Etsy

For the past year I've largely taken a break from contemporary painting, instead focusing on painting many portraits of Prince, as I live relatively close to Paisley Park. It has been and continues to be a very fulfilling experience.
