Marie Masquerade

Preparing to paint....

Well, we dropped off mom at the airport this morning, and now Matt's off with foxmagic hoping to catch a ride on Mission Space (which is unofficially allowing some riders before the grand opening), so I'm here by myself, enjoying a salad, and preparing to paint!

I should be ready in a few minutes, and you can watch me here!

Cirque du Noir...

I've gotten a couple of emails about the piece I'm currently working on here so I thought I'd re-post my reply to lilackat. I'm glad everybody is interested already - before I'm even through, hehe!

Right now I'm working on my piece for the upcoming EBSQ show - "Cirque" (a gothic themed circus show). It's the first in a series I'm calling "Cirque du Noir" which is based on old posters for sideshow acts (like this one: http://www.sideshow-art.com/2headed.html ). The one I'm working on now features a "Two-Headed Girl" which is really of course a set of conjoined twins. I'm kinda going for the idea that the advertisements for the sideshows portrayed a glamorous fantastical sort of idealized version of the rather sad reality and exploitation. We'll see =)
