Jeanie Madsen ~ 30 x 36 inches ~ mixed media on canvas ~ 2013
I created this piece as a gift for Jeanie.  She is celebrating her gallery’s four year anniversary with a celebration on May 11 at the Jeanie Madsen Gallery in Santa Monica, California. 
The image of Jeanie was taken by Kaleo Sallas when we were showing our artwork during Art Basel Miami Beach week in early December 2012 at Aqua12.  Here, Jeanie wields a hammer during the take-down of some pieces at the end of the fair.  Her pose reminds me of Rosie the Riveter, so strong.  The black and white blurry image of palm trees was taken by me from the backseat of a cab on my way to the Miami airport.  The papers used in this piece all came from Miami, mostly found in and around the Wynwood Wall murals and installations.
