Fine Art Friday - Part 1: jdegarmo

My first entry for Fine Art Fridays is jdegarmo. I was drawn to this shop for many reasons. I first noticed a painting entitled, "Contortionist" through a general Etsy search, and was immediately prompted to enter and poke around. The art filling the rest of the shop was equally visually appealing to me. I think I liked the expressions on the faces of the people. The color and detail also sucked me in.

Most paintings in the shop are 6"x 4" acrylic on paper, and are framed and matted in a fantastic deep Black frame, which is an excellent finishing touch, as it makes the piece ready for you! All you have to do is hang it up! There are also a few paintings on canvas and wood that are very awe - striking.

jdegarmo states that he injects his "awkward sense of humor into the images whenever possible," which is apparent in several slightly twisted pieces, including a slightly sadistic twist on Willy Wonka...entitled, "Five Scrumdiddliumptious Youths", which I would buy in a heartbeat had I the funds!!

Here are a few of my favorites:

I especially like the second painting, titled, "Say Uncle". I had a nightmare once about that giant white rabbit from the skittles commercial. He was singing and trying to eat my stomach. I climbed up on the roof to get away from him but that punk rabbit jumped up after me. Anyway, I painted a squirrel caught in the act of decapitating that rabbit, which made me feel a lot better.
I digress... visit jdegramo and buy your favorite one!
