The Story Behind This Painting:
“Fancy Meeting You Here” is the first painting in which I’ve included two fantastical ideas I’ve been cultivating in the genre of Imaginative Realism: feather boa cats and lace fish.
I enjoy painting beautiful textures that are challenging to represent- the lace with its transparency and intricate details and the feathers with their catawampus postures - they excite my senses. Transforming these textures into animals with character and movement is quite challenging and time consuming, but it adds an element of magic and fun.
This painting portrays a moment in which the peculiar figures turn around to see one another for the first time. One can only imagine what will happen next…
I began painting this in the beginning of March of 2022 at the Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale. After the show ended for the year, I had surgery that caused internal bleeding, and was lucky to survive. I took a two month long break to heal and recover because I could not sit upright for very long periods.
The painting was finally finished in October 2022. In that same month, I also began the publication process for the book "There Will Be Nonsense." after raising enough money through Kickstarter presales.
