This is the original 16" x 16" painting (double sided) I did on a birch wood panel in 2021. This is one of those intricate works that continues to reveal itself over time. Even to me and I painted it. I couldn’t just do a Side A for this one, so I covered every flat surface available. The front panel is about confronting our many fears with strength. The back panel references the movie called My Octopus Teacher. It was educational but it made me laugh so much.

This is a work that I have already painted. There is only one.

This work is available to ship in 1 to 2 days and ships for free in US.

This work was made in Ventura, California in 2021.

Thank you for supporting the arts. If you don't like my stuff please buy from another artist.

Art makes the best gift. It shows how much you care about people, plus, it shows what a renaissance person you are in your love of the arts... and who knows, maybe you will be the one responsible for gifting the next Picasso (oh, better buy one for yourself as well... just in case)!
