"Lady Absinthe", 2017, Ginger Del Rey oil on gesso board 24" x 18" x 1" $1250 I met Cat years ago at a party- she is an 'other-worldly' beauty. Her calm, still gaze reminds of a leopard sizing up her prey. She is confident, strong.. she says little but she doesn't need to. A lowered lid, an upturned chin, a slightly arrogant curl to her lip..she could get you to do anything she wants without saying a word.

"Rooftop Portrait - East Village", 2016, Ginger Del Rey oil on canvas 60" x 30" x 1.5" $8500 Occasionally I meet simply stunning boho beauties in random places, like the L train :) Kaja is a lovely Norwegian girl who can rap like a gangsta and is an all-around awesome gal. This painting was based on a photo I shot of her completely illegally on an East Village rooftop. It's the first in a series that I hope to continue for some time or until I get arrested :)

"Lara", 2016, Ginger Del Rey oil and copper leaf on canvas 24" x 24" x .6" $2950 I'm in love with old photos from the 70's. I think it's the particular way that they have aged. Time has tinted or fringed the image in lacy decay, lending it a rosy, sunny tone as if everything was naturally sexy and lovely.  Seventies porn has thing same feeling.  I've tried to imbue this portrait of Lara Stone with that same rosy glow.  The wet lips and loosely tousled hair could very easily come from a 70's porn shoot and I love everything about that :)

"Summer", 2016, Ginger Del Rey oil and gold leaf on gesso board 24" x 18" x 1" sold My new obsession is painting on gold leaf! I chose this woman because she perfectly embodied 'Summer' in her coloring, her careless sexiness, her confidence, her grace in her natural state of nudity, enjoying long summer days. It was so much fun to begin this journey of combining oil painting and gold leaf - I learned a lot! For instance- never paint directly on top of the gold leaf! Luckily I did a few trial runs before attempting this painting. The gold leaf is applied directly to the surface very delicately surrounding her. Then I used several sheer applications of oils to add texture and color to the gold leaf, using turpentine to give it a watery, patina'd expression.

"The Girl with the Ginger Hair", 2016, Ginger Del Rey oil and copper leaf on canvas 24" x 24" x .5" $2750 I was inspired by a Dutch girl I've never met to capture her radiance and unusual grace. Her name is Emma. She reminds me of Grace Kelly. I love the gentle spray of freckling across her nose and imperious arch of her brow. It was a lot of fun creating this painting, playing around with the rose-peach palette and then playing up her incandescent beauty with the rose gold leaf around the edges. Naming this painting was obvious once I connected my love of Vermeer to her Dutch heritage :)

"Lost in the Light", 2015, Ginger Del Rey oil on canvas 24" x 36" x .6" $2500 The inspiration for this painting was a particularly vivid daydream I had of walking through the mountains in Sedona, blowing bubbles and watching the sun slowly drip beneath the horizon, shooting out dusty white hot beams of light in every direction. This is one my favorite paintings because, since I was a child growing up in Wisconsin, I've been fascinated with all things Native American. I was particularly drawn to the beauty of the headdress, and while I'm very cognizant that the war bonnet is not worn by women or worn in casual settings, I wanted to bring a peaceful, light-giving and feminine reclamation to the headdress. I hope that is captured here, nothing but reverence and admiration is intended.

That confidence, that careless sexiness that doesn't need to shout or plead for your attention. Because you're already paying attention. How could you not? This was the first painting where I specifically tried to invoke the sunny 70's. She's become the model for most of my paintings since and a fan favorite!

I named her the Mercurial Angel because the model I chose is not quite smiling, she might be about to smile...then again she might be quite displeased, hard to tell. While her beauty is angelic her temperament is seductively changeable, like clear aqua waters that suddenly darken and thrash about with an impending storm. She's the kind of woman who isn't easy to please, but rewards you richly if you can manage to hold her interest.

Her strong passions remind me of one of my favorite Kerouac quotes: “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” This is Zee to a tee. But such a strong, fiery soul usually finds the one thing she's lacking is a feeling she's arrived, she can relax, she can enjoy the moment. So I chose to paint her in a rare moment of perfect peace and serenity.

I think she may be my muse :) Her combination of fragility, sadness and grace is so compelling. She always tells a story with her face. She's a complicated girl- at times she's bold and energetic, ready to befriend the world with her bohemian style and playful energy. At other times, she's reclusive, fragile and filled with self-doubt. A beautiful paradox. I think it's her polarized personality that draws me to paint her over and over again, forever trying to capture her state of mind.

Her costumes are the most exquisite works of stitchery, her Erte look is beyond gorgeous and her pin-up looks rival Bettie Page and Dita Von Teese. This painting is a tribute to her classic beauty and killer style.
