A winter witch and a robot angel

I have been swamped lately so it's going to be another day of "hey look what I did" instead of musings on other topics, for the moment. I'm thrilled to have some more 5 x 7 prints available, including the painting above. I did this originally many years ago but just did an updated new version of the painting so I could create prints from it. "Snow Cauldron" is my favorite winter witch painting from my little humble collection.

This on the other hand is a new painting, "The Archangel of Robots". I was inspired by a line of dialogue from the film "Who Are You, Polly Maggoo," a 1966 satire in French by the director William Klein. It is an artsy spoof of the fashion industry but it is a visually amazing film in itself. The film opens with models showing off fashions crafted rather ridiculously from sheets of metal. My painting however has nothing to do with any of this, it was just taken from that one phrase that appeared on the screen in subtitles, to my infinite delight.

Oh yes and the Unicorn/UFO painting I mention in my previous post is now available as a print!

I beg your indulgence for my shamless self promotion in my recent posts. When things cool off in my daytime schedule I will have a chance to post about some other adventures!
