What kind of mother would I be if I didn't feature the artwork of my own child? I am so proud to show the world the work of this wonderfully talented and unique young man. Sam has always had a fascination for the music, history, and pop culture of the sixties and seventies. He likes to think of himself as a "flower child" born a few decades too late. The original painting above, entitled "Groove-iti" is a huge 32" x 40" piece. He has an ACEO-sized print of this painting in his Etsy shop: http://bjandme.etsy.com
Sam's art is a direct reflection of his emotions. Sam completed this painting, entitled "Fear in Chaos", during that frightening time when we were all coming to terms with the reality of terrorism at home. This is a 16" by 20" mixed media piece. Look closely at the body. In addition to the newspaper clippings, you can see that his body is covered with words expressing the fear that accompanied those events. An ACEO-sized print of this painting is available in Sam's shop.
As in most of his works, Sam's dog, Baby Jayne, puts in an appearance in each of these paintings. She is in the driver's seat of the van, and she protects Sam's heart in the second painting.
