This one of a kind original painting was completed in 2021, it is loved by many who’ve followed its creation on facebook and instagram or have viewed it at the various art shows I’ve taken it to in Arizona and California. There are no full sized duplicates of this painting on canvas. I do not sell full sized prints and I do not sell prints on canvas. I do not paint duplicate original paintings or paint embellishments on prints. There is not another painting like this one in the world!
The painting is 48 inches tall by 36 inches wide on gallery wrapped canvas. It was featured in the first ever issue of “Art Seen Magazine” an international magazine from The Curator’s Salon. It comes with a removable half inch black floater frame. The painting comes with the story about the painting. There is a signature on the front of the painting, the piece is also signed on the back with the name of the painting, date of completion, and a stamp of my actual finger print.

The Story Behind This Painting:
This painting is first and foremost a fun idea that I really wanted to put out into the world. It evolved into a funny tribute to fathers. You see all kinds of paintings with mothers holding and nurturing children, but dads often help us out of our comfort zone with their own parenting style. It made me think of the fun times I had with my dad growing up where he startled me and my mom would get upset with him, and the way my husband plays a little more rough with our kids than I do.
The idea began like many of my paintings do – with a particular animal – I wanted to do a fun painting of a shark, but I didn’t have any ideas that got me really excited until this popped into my head. I was working with my sketch book and had made a list of playful items, one of them being a jack in the box. Then the idea popped into my mind and it made me laugh out loud. Viewers often mention that it reminds them of the Saturday Night Live “Land Shark” skit. That might have been a subconscious idea going on in the background of my mind when I had this idea. Laughter is one of things that really inspires me to paint.
This painting is one of five paintings included in the “Just For Fun” Show – A collection of paintings done in an imaginative realist style. It was my first virtual art show. The show includes a video that you can find on youtube. It was painted during the COVID 19 pandemic as part of a show that was supposed to held at a Gallery in Phoenix. When the show was canceled due to Covid I decided to show the series on my own online.
