Counter Pollination.


Acrylic on canvas, 18″ X 30″.

Comics have always been a major influence in my life. They really inspired me to want to be an artist. Comic Illustrators/ artists tend not to be taken seriously in the Fine Art world, but that doesn’t make them any less relevant to our lives. In this painting Superman’s vulnerability to, what most people consider the most harmless thing, is amplified by the presence of his hostess, whom he would rather evade than fight. So he finds himself in a sticky situation. I’ve seen this little allegory played out many times in the course of my life, but on a much more real scale.
