This painting is for a new series, Pretty Ugly, where I am revisiting some of my earlier work from the series titled Sugar Coated Memories.
This series deals with my childhood memories. This painting, 952 Mallett, is about the house I grew up in, and the monsters from that house that never release you. The girl represents me as a child. I am resting my arm on the monster to show acceptance of the monster that is always with you, wherever you go. The empty room behind me is the future.
This painting was created for the invitational show, What Big Eyes You Have. I am so honored to show with such an amazing group of artist. Thank you Sarah and Michael Banks, for inviting me to participate in this show!
