Behind the paint as I finish prepping for Wonderfront Festival this weekend. Come check it out and message me for all of your art needs!

New paintings available. This was fun one to do and it posed some challenges. DM me to claim it.

A visiting collector on a studio tour reiterated yesterday that nothing compares to seeing my paintings in person. It’s just an experience like no other filled with hidden treasures for those willing to take a deeper look.

SOLD! These little pieces have quickly become my most popular and they go fast. These two sold today but you can still reserve your commission or set because they’re great in pairs or bundles. They’re small, affordable, and a great way to start your collection. You can pick your color scheme and your favorite #MostlyForHer poem or you can skip the poem. They ship easily and I offer interest-free payment plans. Message me today and reserve yours.

On a recent episode of my podcast we discussed knowing your worth and asking the universe for what you want. So here goes…

I want/need to have someone acquire a medium-large original painting in order to sustain enough resources to realistically make it through next month, after which I am confident the plans I have in motion will be in full swing and I will be in a place of greater stability. Though things are on the up right now, a lot of my yearly expenses hit me all at the same time, and I’ve reached that point. I also have KAABOO Del Mar next month and don’t want to sacrifice the quality of the best show I can possibly put on for everyone attending. You make what I do possible and I could really use your support. I don’t take handouts, but I do hustle and make deals. Let’s make a deal.

“Labyrinth of the Butterfly”

“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized me with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. My signature icon, which I saw flashing in my head during the concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

One of my most intense and intricate paintings to date, “Labyrinth of the Butterfly” started out white and red. Somewhere along the journey I lost my way a bit and was tangled up in the labyrinth. When I emerged, this was the result. Though perhaps not explicitly obvious, this painting is a deep exploration of sexuality.

Michael Carini | “As Angel Tears Quell Conflagrations”

The minimalist flower paintings are a subset collection from “The Boy In The Box” series. Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box.
