David Bowie’s Eyes Painted In Flowers

Flower Bowie eyes by Patrushka 12

David Bowie’s Eyes in Flowers

These two little paintings are in the upcoming exhibition “The Coaster Show” at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, in Los Angeles. (For show info, click here.)

They are David Bowie’s unusual eyes, transposed on flowers – a carnation (which is Bowie’s birth flower for the month of January) and a gardenia (which is his wife Iman’s favorite flower.)

The carnation symbolizes love, fascination and distinction.

In an interview Iman shared, “I did not want to get involved with a rock star. No way. It is not a sane thing to do, but David changed my mind. He wooed me.” Shortly after their first meeting, Iman traveled to Paris.  When she arrived at her hotel room, it was filled with her favorite flower, gardenias, with a card from David.

Titles: “Carnation Eye” (Bowie’s right eye) and “Gardenia Eye” (Bowie’s left eye)

Sizes: 4″ x 4″

Medium: Gouache on upcycled coasters, varnished

Black Jesus Reprinted In New Bible

black jesus

I am happy to report my black velvet painting – “The Real Jesus” was included in the printing of The African American Bible’s recent edition.
Now if only all the bibles showed him as black (or at least dark skinned as we know he was… ) -that would be amazing progress!

Bit by bit, baby steps are better than none…

“I remember what you told me before you went out on your own

“Sometimes to keep it together, we got to leave it alone.”

So you can get on with your search, baby, and I can get on with mine

And maybe someday we will find , that it wasn’t really wasted time”

 Title: Hedgehog Takes A Ride

 Inspired by hedgehogs and their cuteness, magic and the sun.

 Size: 10.5″ x 13.25″

  Medium: Gouache on wood, varnished.

“I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride…”

– Steppenwolf

Hope-Patrushka-web8

This is a small watercolor inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops – at all …
