I used old sketches of trees and swirly skies that I've always liked but couldn't find a way forward with. Combo'ed them with Judaic ideas that formed over time and into unplanned dioramas. Now I"m on my way to a triptych of Chai, Chaiim and L'Chaiim. Which mean, respectively in Hebrew, "life" and "life" and "to life".
It's a devilish predicament when there are two pixies, instead of one.
My four dioramas of Hebrew words. Two say "Etz" which means tree, and two say "Shalom" which means peace, hello and goodbye. The paintings are all finished but I'm tinkering with most of the found objects.
Not sure what to call this piece yet. I have a handful of photos from my bacon pixie shoot that remind me of old-time actresses, like Greta Garbo and Rita Hayward. So perhaps I'll play on the 1950s pinups.
Got further on one of the Raw Meat images. I've added the first layer of oil paint.
Two images for a "Raw Meat" bacon pixie series. These are stage 1, colored pencil on watercolor paper.
