Maman Brigitte

yeah, I know - been forever. Well, been working on a big set of images with varying levels of success. Mostly they're legendary beings and animals they're associated with. This is one of the images that I did first, and while liking it, I think it ended up a little flat compositions-wise. Anyway, Brigitte is big in Voodoo, she's all about graveyards and drinking rum that has been so spiced with hot peppers that no human could drink it (and is known to rub it on her privates, as well, but I thought that might not be such a good picture since I'm painting her as a minor). She's symbolized by the black rooster..... this one's acrylic on found wood. 26x43cm

Cheers!

Wow.

How could I go about getting a print of that? I looked on the sites you mentioned, but no Maman.

thanks :)

hey amy,

I haven't done any prints of paintings yet, and as you can tell by the comment before you, someone already took Maman home.

Thanks for the interest, and there will be a follow up painting featuring Maman and her black rooster in a few weeks - it's the next painting on the roster.

Joshua, can you please post the new painting when it's ready - maybe I'll want to buy that one too :) Maman needs more roosters ;)

Thanks,
