And now for something completely different...

Just when you were getting used to Robots and Owls, she changes gears again...

This latest project was inspired by one of the great pop artists of the 21st century - Andy Warhol. There are dozens of tools online today that let you "Warholize" any picture to give it that wonderful pop art feeling Warhol achieved with this classic original:




I started thinking about what I might immortalize in a Warhol style painting. When the subject popped into my head I quickly 'googled' the concept to see if it had been done before.
I was shocked - I could not find a single, original work of art like this. I felt it was my obligation to paint one!
Without further delay... I present my own, original, Warhol-like creation:


The "Warholized" Easter Peeps
Acrylic on Canvas 8 x 10

I feel a Peeps series coming... There's Picasso (cubism), Dali (surrealism), Matisse (fauvism), you get the idea...
