As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance. -- Calvin and Hobbes

Art that gives

Rhett and Scarlet Rise Again!




What more could you ask for down in Hotlanta?  The latin community in Atlanta plus us latin loving bystanders had a ball this year at the Day of the Dead festival downtown!  The Atlanta Artists Center painted a big mural panel and 9 contributing artists also painted their own panel commemorating the day!  This one is mine.

This very happy skeletal couple was painted for the 2012 Day of the Dead festival.  I wanted to reflect the local history and culture in the spirit of silliness I honored the memory of Rhett and Scarlett, and vicariously, Atlanta native Margaret Mitchell who wrote Gone With The Wind.  Pictures don't quite do it justice, this piece is funny, bright and fun to have hanging around, even if it's just for your once a year Day of the Dead celebration!  It's pretty big too at 2 feet square, so find a nice big wall for it!  I will attach hangers to the back if you wish.  

Proceeds from the sale of this painting will be distributed to several local humanitarian causes including the Center for Family Resources in Cobb County, Ga which helps families in need with food, shelter and other resources. Also one or two other local area food pantries will also receive donations from the sale of this painting.  Do you have a preference of food pantries? Win this auction, and specify your choice so that I may send something that direction! 

Thanks for looking and happy bidding!  

Title:  Rhett and Scarlett rise again
Size: 24"x24"
Medium: Acrylic on finish plywood

BONUS!  - This painting is signed on the front but I will write a cute story about Rhett and Scarlett on the back as well as any dedication you may wish for your intended recipient!

I hope this will help feed a few families for Thanksgiving. Did I mention I will pay for the shipping?  It's for a good cause!  You get a neat painting and contribute to something worthwhile!
Thanks for your bid!
Go to the Auction!

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. -Andy Warhol
