Jinx shows at “Circus Circus” and “I still heart LA” this June

The “Circus Circus” show opening at The Hive was so much fun! Great times. Below are a few photos from the nights festivities

Here’s the “Blue Clown” painting up on the wall.

Here I am as the blue clown next to my purple clown painting.

Here’s a small peak at what other circus themed art there is at The Hive this month.

I am also showing at the “I still heart LA” show that opens this Saturday at¬†Monkeyhouse Toys and Gallery. Featuring art about Why LA Still Rules!
Click the image below for more information about the show.

New piece for the “I still heart LA” show. I found this little bunny on the sidewalk in LA when I had just moved here. He’s been an excellent model in several of my paintings. The bee represents The Hive gallery in downtown LA where I work on my paintings. It’s an absolutely great space that allows me to focus and create wonderful things. If I had never moved to Los Angeles I never would have found these great things! And that is why I still ‚ô• LA.

New piece for “Red Death Masquerade” show at 1 Wicked Gallery in NC

I’m excited to be showing in another state. I made the piece below for the “Red Death Masquerade” show at One Wicked Gallery in North Carolina.

Here are a few progress photos. I found a really nice paper at Michael’s (I ‚ô• Michael’s!). I glued it to the board and painted it. Then painted the dog skull on top.

This piece took a little bit longer to finish than I thought. I can’t help but use a very small brush.

Below is the finished piece.

“Lovers and Haters” show at The Hive, revamped art from Jinx

This Saturday at The Hive is the opening of the “Lovers and Haters” themed show. I’m showing an older piece that I have revamped. I feel it is a little more bad ass now. I added more wounds to this zombie. I also matted and framed it a bit better.
