Ready to Hang

This is a break from my usual style, so it does not quite fit into any of my collections for showing in local galleries, but was an incredibly fun experience to create this for a call for entries for a "Postmodern" show.

The title is inspired by my love for playing with words, which was probably first introduced to me through watching wheel of fortune with my grandparents.

Sidenote: many people have asked if the bird to the side is a dove. It is not. In his later years, Nikola Tesla, took great joy in feeding and caring for pigeons. This is meant to be a representations of his favorite pigeon.

I just recently took down a new collection of art from a local gallery. it is entitled "The Hollowmen and the fine art of detraction". My previous collection "The Farm" explored on of the most important places from my childhood. The Hollowmen collection explores one of the most dominant parts of my young adult life, for better or worse: offices. Several pieces from the show already sold, but you can view them on my website: heatherthecreator.com. I have a BA in Fine Art, live in Colorado, and enjoy making creative paintings that explore my fascination with the imperfection and beauty of fading memories, and the use of landscape and figure to represent both the great and the mundane experiences in my life. I hope you like my art..
