Barbie's Pantheon?

12" x 8.5"
This thing is so light and fairey-like, which is odd since I was pretty irritated while painting it. Just general winter blahs. This makes me want to do entire series of creatures/phenomena from invented belief systems, developed for various fictitious entities. This would be some deity in a Barbie Pantheon.
The central area is metallic silver, so it's quite different in person.

Winter blahs make good paintings? No, that's bad geometry: Good paintings can be made despite winter blahs. There.

Love this.

(Not sure Barbie is this sensuous. But maybe it's Barbie's alter ego. The real Barbie . . . )

Yes, It's what real Barbie would worship, were she really real.

your work intrigues me.

Thanks. I can't say that I like my imagery, but I'm coming to terms with it.
