Cold miserable night wading in a pond, trying to maintain balance and failing (both of us), she lost a “shoe”, I burned my hand, a fish bit her on the butt and I am pretty sure there is no reason to keep these muddy shorts, and it was all worth it. This is the covered shot for Facebook. See the original shot on the website. Enjoy. See the short video teaser posted to the fanpage to see some behind the scenes. Check out more, look up fleshandcolor and become a fan :)

"Her Private Mechanisms III" - Had a fun day painting this piece. As with the others, I start with a base of black and paint the robotic structure on top and shoot the photo on black to eliminate the body to give a 3D effect. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Enjoy and feel free to share.

Played with some UV makeup today. It was a fun set. Painted the “hair” like designs on the backdrop as a last minute touch to the piece using black light as the light source. I am happy with how this turned out.  Enjoy and feel free to share.

"His Private Mechanisms" - The significance of this painting is that it is a self-portrait. I went from losing almost 700lbs, having multiple surgeries to finally this. I spent about 4 hours staring in a mirror painting backwards and often with my left hand (right handed) to pull this painting off. So, it goes without saying it is not perfect but I am happy with it.

I base coated myself in black and then painted with metallics on top.

In continuing the mechanical themes, this is a piece where the outer skin has been removed to show the inner workings of a cyborg from a “steampunkish” time. The waist line actually follows my surgical scars around my waist and I left the jeans to give a bit of a ruggedness to it.

Dia De Muertos Day of the Dead Maternity Painting. Wanted to have a traditional stylized look, not very realistic and with a little more folk art to it. Enjoy and feel free to share.
