The black and white ink sketch is not included in the sale of the piece. It is the doodle that I did while on board a plane. These cahracters are often sparked when I travel, so I never go anywhere without my pen and pad! I hope that you can enjoy the whimsy of these three dapper peicans!
I started this work in September 2018 at the Upstate Alliance of Realtors fundraiser event. I painted on this piece at a SCAN fundraiser event, a N.E.W. Mentorship Workshop event, and at a festival show in Rogers, Arkansas. I have included one photo of me painting live. I completed this work in my studio in the first week of October 2018.
Creating anthropomorphic characters is a big part of how I exercise my imagination. As a child my mother regularly took me and my siblings to the local zoo. This exposure to a wide variety of animals had a large impact on my daydreams. As an adult I found that I coped with the stress of life by doodling caricatures of my teachers or professors, often making them into animals. This has carried over into my paintings, and is a strong theme throughout my work.
