1. “Surreal Muse”
30″x24″. Acrylic on canvas. 2023
She is my most recent painting- and Frida is the first painter I studied and inspired me.
2. “Saying Goodbye During COVID” Saying Goodbye During COVID
(December 20, 11:31am).
20” X 24”, Acrylic on Canvas. 2022
It is a painting of my family on a video call with my father, who was dying in the hospital with COVID. It shows each of us looking at him through a tiny square of video, and his image on the phone, barely conscious. It was the last time I spoke to my dad, and if you shine a black light on the painting, you will see a hidden message: “I love you, I love you, I love you. Whenever I look in the mirror, I will always see you”, which were the last words I ever said to him. This work is so raw, that I was concerned if I should even share it. I am glad I did.
