Eat You Up, 2015, Acrylic on Board, 24 x 30
Before you get the wrong idea, let me explain. The assignment was Food. I have a love/infatuation with arms and every summer when my children start wearing short sleeves I can’t help myself from nibbling a little. I had intended on including my daughter in the picture but after drawing it I realized it was sentimental to me, but likely to bore everyone else. So I just left her out altogether. What’s left is a darkly comical (my favorite kind of comedy) image that speaks to the sort of love hate/relationship parents, particularly lonely housewives, may have with their children.
