Hurricane Edna

Ah, Dame Edna. One of my favorite comediennes. Her one man show ranks as one of the funniest ever on Broadway. Last summer, as I was developing sketches of the Dame, Hurricane Irene was making the news. And that's when the premise hit me: What if Dame Edna commissioned me to paint her official portrait? She wanted it to be lovely, perfect in every way for all her "Possums to relish her superstardom!" But at the last minute a hurricane happens and that's when I caught her expression. To me it's the perfect comedic moment for Dame Edna and it captures her hilarious attitude. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it.

Fargo: the painting

"Fargo" was one of my favorite movies. When I worked in television, I was often asked by the studios to take a movie and make it into a television series. Sometimes a book becomes a movie and then a television series. Media is always morphing into another media. So I decided to take the movie "Fargo" and see if I could make it into a painting and still have the viewer relive the experience in a new way. In the movie, Margie's husband, Norm, was commissioned to create a painting for an upcoming 3 cent stamp. I used his painting as a springboard for this painting. All the major characters are now featured on 3 cent stamps. And, let's face it, the foot became the most memorable character in the movie. Had to include it, too! My hope is that it's a warm homage to a cold and brutal movie. You can click on the image to enlarge it
