ahhhh... studio time

I am painting away! Painting shiny plastic is so much fun. I am kind of dreading the negative space.

This painting might as well be my ode to Jeff Koons. Jeff Koons is one of those artists that you really want to hate. However (like Andy Warhol) his work gets better the more you think about it. The questions he asks about contemporary culture, the nature of consumerism, and the role
of the artist are very interesting. I am going to make a contreversial prediction... in 100 years when historians are trying to visual represent the 1990s and 2000s- they are going to use Jeff Koons.
