WIP post…

I’m concentrating the majority of my attention on taxidermy really, but I had started this submission for one of my favorite west coast galleries and the deadline was just extended giving me just the perfect and realistic amount of time I needed to finish it. I’ve got to wait on a few things in the tanning wash, so the timing couldn’t be better!
The base is a found item, a painted poppy plant on walnut craft wood. I liked the painting a lot, but sadly the finish was in pretty bad shape. What I’ve done here is preserved and incorporated the original painted bloom into the new work and created a psychedelic poppy-plant-squid-creature to embrace it. It’s flashy, colorful, and no doubt a far out piece! Here’s some progress pics to give you an idea of what the finished piece will look like…
