This painting is a massive redux. I removed a kimonoed figure and replaced it with a giant tiger head. This necessitated working a lot bigger than I was used to, but I like the results.
My third sushi print is still available at Guzu Gallery. Go buy it, Won’t yoooooou?
This is a 12″ square piece I’m putting into Due West, the group show for the West Austin Studio Tour 2015. It fits in the Defensive Postures series. It was an experiment to see if I could make a smaller piece work in the series. Defensive postures is mostly going to be larger paintings, originals more than prints. Anyway, owls are fun and I’ve been toying with a smaller setting of constructed helmets for animals to wear. It’s a nice bridge between the two series.(I just noticed this pic is partly a photoshop pre vis…but that’ll do.)
