Pie•Pan's Birthday Painting

Sometimes I get to take on projects that really moves me into a head space that is uplifting and enjoyable on multiple levels. This is one of those projects. A good friend and long time buddy had asked me to create an art piece as a birthday gift for another good friend and old school pal to whom she is now married. There were no special requests for anything in particular and I was given absolute free range. Immediately I knew I wanted to do a multimedia piece that represented his interests, unique personality and some of the memories I have of him from all the years that we have known each other. This is the result, a multimedia piece that includes references to his nicknames, favorite candy and bands, inside jokes and his interests in mods, scooters, cooper minis, video games and his wry sense of humor. While I was creating this art, I couldn't help myself form laughing and sighing at the good times that shared in our younger years causing mischief, partying, giving each other sh*t, and having great adventures. The memories that bubbled up were bitter sweet. I miss the those days, the scene and circle of friend that we were all a part of. I am really grateful and stoked that I thought of and asked to be the one to make this gift for him. It was a nice ticket for a reminiscence trip back to a very special time in my life. Ok, enough mush here is what I created for my two friends Chilipeppa and Pie-pan.

If interested in me doing a commission for you, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
