Valerie Jeanne paints people and animals. Sounds simple enough, right? However, her people and animals have a bit of a twist - and a turn. And some weirdness...which I love. Check out this Big Eye Art.
Reunion - ok we have quite a few things going on here. Some aliens....and some flora and fauna (ok, maybe not fauna per se, but some bird-life anyway).
Overcome by Events - we've all felt this way before. As a matter of fact, this piece represents my day today perfectly.
Climbing - kind of a strange fellow... climbing towards something
Plight of the Bumblebird
Winged Monkey (for all you OZ fans out there). The Oz books were a huge influence on me. Not so much sweetness and light.
Lime and Berry
Bird Girl - the first piece Valerie did on a smashed piece of soda pop can. Who needs a regular canvas?
This is just the first in a series of several pieces that the artist has done on smashed soda pop cans.
Hard to tell, isn't it?
I love to see work with this kind of texture. It adds a different dimension to the piece.
And yeah... a bird-girl - why not?
Makes you want to see more, doesn't it?
Lil Green Ears - yes this one is called Lil' Green Eyes.
And yes it looks kinda cute, but you've got to admit, it's strange.
Not the usual cuteness here.
Yes, I know.
Nice big eyes... but that only adds to the strangeness.
The artist describes this as being a combination of radish, pear, and Chihuahua.
Creepy and cool.
Jazz Fingers - Dancing digits. Peace.....
Cupid - Valerie Jeanne-style
The Cascade Effect - it's all about how everything effects everything. You think you can escape influences around you. This particular piece demonstrates in an unsettling way how silly that notion is.
Chicken to Ride - A ride on your head, that is......
A Cavalcade of Creatures - I love the mix-up here.
The Legendary Flying Unicorn-Anubis-Dog of Egypt
A bit of everything.
A combination of several legends into one weird creature.
And the texture still feels kind of stone-like.
Animal Scramble - and we all focus on the eyes.
My Chicken Friend
We should all have such a friend
(you know my obsession with chickens. That's just who I am, sorry).
This one is called Out on a Limb. It's kind of a bird, and kind of not.
Alien Ant -
Pink Dog and Chicken - and... let's end with a chicken, too. Along with Man's Best Friend (or so they say...jury's still out).
