The Star is my card for the Lowbrow Tarot - a tarot themed book & exhibition being held at Alexi Era Gallery at their new Eugene Oregon location! "The Star" is a fun card - it has a lot of great symbolism traditionally - it's a "hopeful" card, with the main figure always pouring out two water jugs (she has one in her other hand too). I always equate the figure in The Star with the ancient Greek Goddess of Youth - "Hebe" - she always has a couple of pitchers/cups pouring from either hand, so I have given her some of the classical aspects of Hebe as well. If you look closely you'll see a lovely ibis bird (the type that sometimes lands in my backyard in Florida!) in the distance - they are usually in the background of the Star cards in traditional tarot decks like the Rider Waite, etc.

Prints are at Strangeling.com here , we have small and big glossy paper prints - signed on the back by me - on sale this week (only $9.99 and $19.99). We also have limited edition canvases for $125 - they are 11x16", hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 25 made, wrapped on boards and ready-to-hang.

"Alice in a Klimt Dream"
16x20" Original Acrylic Painting $6800 SOLD
Prints & canvases from $9.99 on sale HERE



“Alice in a Klimt Dream” 16x20" Original Acrylic Painting $6800 SOLD - prints & canvases from only $9.99 available here (or just search: Klimt  at Strangeling.com )

This piece debuted & sold as part of my “Allusions and Allegories” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA and is an illustration destined for my Alice in Wonderland oracle deck. “Alice in a Klimt Dream” – as part of my “Alice in Other Lands” series (based on artists throughout history) – this one of course focusing on Gustav Klimt. I love the ape, and the Beethoven Frieze. The portrait of his Adele Bloch-Bauer has a bit of a Queen of Hearts nod. In the original painting I overlaid the shiny bits with gold paint – turned out lovely. The Allusions in this one specifically are to Alice in Wonderland (part of my Alice in Other Lands series, where different artists from past centuries are referenced) and 19th Century Austrian master Gustav Klimt – many pieces & design elements of his are referenced in this piece.

Prints are at Strangeling.com here , we have 8x10" and 12x16" glossy prints - signed on the back by me - on sale this week (only $9.99 and $19.99). We also have Masterpiece Limited edition Canvases for $595 - they are full sized big 16x20" canvases, hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 5 made, wrapped on boards and ready-to-hang.  We also have (on sale for only $90 this week) the open edition canvases which are gorgeous as well! All are at the link above, or just search "Klimt" up at Strangeling.com

We also have all the various print types on eBay here (including the #1 Masterpiece LE)

and Etsy here

You can also see the original painting still while it hangs at the Corey Helford Gallery (downtown LA, Gallery 2) through August 20th in person =)

"Allegory of Infinity"
12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD
Prints & canvases from $13.99 on sale HERE



“Allegory of Infinity” 12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD - prints & canvases from only $13.99 available here (or just search:  Infinity  at Strangeling.com )

This piece debuted & sold as part of my “Allusions and Allegories” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA.

This piece debuted & sold as part of my “Allusions and Allegories” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA. In this piece I have three maidens, holding hands to create a circle (like the traditional Greco-Roman “Three Graces”) – in front of them is an Ouroboros (ancient circular symbol consisting of a snake biting its own tail, representing infinity, often used in alchemical texts). Also referencing some Dutch nautilus shell vessels (the spiral of the nautilus representing a perfect infinite repetition), this symbolic painting illustrates various imagery associated with infinity.

We have glossy prints signed on the back by me on sale this week at the link above (or just go to strangeling.com and search : Allegory ) - only $13.99 for 8x10"s and $29.99 for 12x16"s. We also have the limited edition canvas prints - hand embellished by me in acrylic paint, signed and numbered - only 25 made - 11x14" and wrapped on boards ready-to-hang for only $125. All are my website above.

"Femme Fatale"
11x14" Acrylic painting on Panel - Price will be $4000 - email  info@moderneden.com at Modern Eden Gallery if interested!



Work-in-progress - almost finished! Her name is "Femme Fatale" - the piece I've painted for the "Femme to Femme Fatale" group show curated by Beautiful.Bizarre Magazine at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.

She is an 11x14" acrylic on panel - she'll come beautifully framed, and will be priced at $4000.

As with my other faux-pixellated paintings - yes, this is what the painting looks like - no, it's not done with a computer, I've painted all the little squares myself. Kind of got an Eve / Cleopatra theme (the snake is based on the one in Winter's 19th Century Cleopatra) emphasizing the Femme Fatale theme.

If you are interested in the original painting contact info@moderneden.com | 415-956-3303 - and after the exhibition we'll have prints, etc. up at Strangeling.com =)

Exhibition Dates:
17 September - 8 October 2016

Opening Reception:
Saturday 17 September, 2016
Modern Eden Gallery
801 Greenwich St,
San Francisco, CA 94133 USA

Unfortunately I don't think I'll able to make the opening reception in person, but a lot of the other artists will - if you are in the Bay Area definitely stop by!
