So in love with this oval canvas, I need more ovals in my life!! Portrait in progress…listened only to Black Sabbath and Danzig for the duration of this piece….it’s having a dark effect on my work. Oh well!💀💜💕 #oilpainting #wip #ovalcanvaslove #darkness!
Threw a watermelon off my balcony, snapped some photos and started a painting. Reminiscent of my brain and it’s overall smushiness 🍉🍉🍉 #wip #watermelon #oilpainting #smooshedbrain
Start of a large (for me) oil painting, inspired by Dante’s Inferno, one of my favorite classic stories. Starting at the very beginning, “Midway upon the journey of our life/ I found myself within a forest dark,/ For the straightforward pathway had been lost.” This is my version of the forest, filled with skulls, maritini glasses, banana peels… More soon! #oilpainting #wip #dantesinferno #darkforest

Thanks for looking! 😘💛🎉 #website #art #sanfranciscoartist #paintings #woodburnings #technologyishardforme (at www.chelseavioletimages.com)
Some great SF art show reviews from a few weeks back. If you scroll down to where it says “Gallery” (They meant Gauntlet Gallery), you’ll find some highlights from the show, along with some sweet closeups of Benjamin Clarke Adam Ziskie and my works!
If you’re an artist I def recommend Alan Bamberger artbusiness.com for all the advice and artistic information you could ever dream of! Prepare to lose hours of your life on this site
Had the opportunity to paint a cut off chicken head and took it…otherwise it woulda just gone straight to the trash 🐓 #oilpainting #chickenhead
Sifting through all the pics I took of @beautyfoster and sketching out ideas. She was a great model to work with, both for taking photos of and to sketch. I recommend workin with her if you’re an artist in New York! #beautyfoster #art #sketch #afro #wip 🌸🌺🌹🌷
