I painted this “Dementor” on 9.5″x7.75″ piece of birch wood. Inspired by the Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Using acrylic paint, once dry the piece was covered in gloss, for a glass look (difficult to see in the photo). The Dementor is set in front of the full moon, just after Prof. Lupin transforms into a werewolf.
I am donating 2 pieces for the Rochester Contemporary Art Center’s Annual 6×6 Exhibit. This one, simply named “Pinwheel”, will be available for purchase in New York or on-line for $20 bucks. This is press-board, 6″x6″, acrylic, with a high gloss finish. This has a black background with several soft colors making the pinwheel design. Inspired by a Pinwheel Nebula. I love outer-space and science. The backside is affixed with a saw tooth hanger for easy hanging.
Most of my acrylic painting designs are based on how I’m feeling that day, simple as that 🙂

I created this piece with mixed media. I used six layers of the fancy toile tissue paper on the upper section. Tearing it, laying it flat, blow drying between layers. The lower section consists of crumbled up tissue paper glued on to the canvas. Lastly I painted, a somewhat, abstract orange cat, right in the center. Over the course of a month, this took about 10 hours to complete. Super fun. The piece measures 16″ x 20″. It’s hung above my bed 🙂
