LGBT Pictionary: Part II

Sapphic means "poetic, and or relating to Sappho." The word "sapphic" is based on the ancient Greek poetess, Sappho who wrote magnificent works to women, and is assumed to have been lesbian, or at least bisexual.

The mixed media distressed painting is a small work, 8: x 8.” It is floating in a 10” square frame with a 1” space around it. The “floating” framing technique makes the artwork look as though it is hovering in space, a look I like for the small works in the LGBT Pictionary.

Several people have suggested turning this project into a book, and I like the idea. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to begin such a process. Does anyone have suggestions as to how to begin such a project? I already have 32 artworks, and more in process. However, I need help with who to talk to, presentation for getting the appropriate people (company) on board to create the book.

LGBT Pictionary

It's about time I added the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pictionary to this blog.

A-list, (8" x 8") June 7, 2013

I have 32 of these new mixed media distressed paintings that were created for the June Gay Pride month last spring, 2013 display at Camp Reho both in Delaware. Some of the paintings are currently on display at Storks Bakery and Cafe in Fort Lauderdale, FL, through January 3, 2014. I will upload jpeg images of the works to this blog 2 or 3 at a time until all are here.

Same Sex Marriage (Gay Marriage) 8" x 8," September 28, 2012

The original small mixed media distressed paintings are available framed (they float in a 10" square format for $145.00 ea. There are larger works that are more expensive and I will point those out with dimensions and prices listed when I place them on display here. Prints of these artworks may also be purchased for $25.00 ea., unframed.
