OKay here is the low down about the next few paintings. I'm taking a stab at horrible school pictures of childhood and the medicines I had to endure. Lil' Miss Children's Tylenol is sitting on one of fake benches with the horrible fountain background. I really hated children's tylenol in any form, especially the liquids and the chewables, I still shiver from even thinking about the taste of them.
Anyways I have been watching a lot of documentaries about medicated america, and the one that stuck out most recently to me was Generation RX, about over medicating out children with psychiatric drugs. Sooo... now I'm going to make a few paintings of children in bad school pictures as their childhood medications.

My Little Pill Pony Painting. Acrylic on canvas.
I need to make more of these pieces along with my pill ponies with playsets because I really like these pieces personally. Its hard to find the knock off ponies I like to use for these pieces but I need to look at the bargain barn some more during the week. Oh well off to make more pieces...

It isn't obvious I watch a lot of my little ponies with my child? Actually I do blame watching too much of the aforementioned show. I've actually had these fake MLPs sitting around the studio for a week now after buying them at the "bargain barn" section of a local Good Will store. I've thought about taking pieces of wood and making complete "play sets" for these babies, but my intent is to play upon the idea of the "cutie mark" from the show MLP and how it reflects upon the pony's personality. They're all slightly over medicated, but the white pony especially is with the tweaked out look it has. (Its my favorite)

Have you ever dealt with Rumination before? I tend to ruminate over a lot of different things especially my body and health. These images are from a book I worked on for teaching art to high school students and the professor made us keep an "idea book". I tend to obsess over thins and the circles are constantly repeated as a way of obsessive thinking, or rumination.

This little embroidery sample comes from my 2nd year in fiber arts during my under graduate years. We were using text in our art as a form of communicating them just with imagery and I came up with this funny little piece. I think it should be the name of show about children's medicine one day perhaps...

This is my main corner for working in my studio. The other wall is filled with bakers racks holding all of my books, toys, and other oddities. As you can see I'm a bit of a nut for japanese animation. When I'm not making paintings about pill people or my experiences working through coping skills with what is wrong with me then I watch a lot of animated things. I love it. Its my number one release.

The label is appropriated from CVS' prescrition bag which I love because of the graphic nature of the bag and how it relates to my art work.
CVS you make taking pills hip.
