"Three Holy Women"...

"Three Holy Women" (acrylic, 30"x40")
Another painting inspired by the women in my current theatrical production of THE CEMETERY CLUB.  I'm enjoying the process of studying other artists and being inspired by their creations.  I may create more "three women" paintings to include in the lobby of the theatre.  -Erico

"Young Women" (acrylics, 30x40") Dali-inspired.
After comments that my "Beggar Woman" was too small for the large stage of The House of Bernarda Alba, I created this piece.  Its colors match the "Resting" piece that will also adorn the stage. I'm learning to enjoy this type of painting that is inspired by another artist's work.  -Erico 
The House of Bernarda Alba...inspired me to create two Picasso studies.

"Beggar Woman" (acrylics, 18x24") Picasso-inspired

"Resting" (acrylics, 24x48") Picasso-inspired
I was inspired to create two new paintings, inspired by Picasso, for the revival of The House of Bernarda Alba, my translated play that was performed at Inspiration Studios on January 4, 5, 6.  The play is being presented at AACTFEST 2019 in Verona, Wisconsin, on January 18-20.

Use windows?  Why not?

"Seahorse in the Blue" (acrylic on window, 12x20", 2018)

It's always so much fun to explore a new medium or a new surface for painting.  This was done at one of our painting parties (Paint 'n Sip) events, earlier this summer, at Inspiration Studios.  I painted the backside with different shades of blue multi-surface paint; then painted the images on the front, highlighting some fo the spots from the back.  It was so whimsical.  It was fun!  I'm glad I chose to participate this time.  -Erico
