Gallery: Weirdo Edition

   Original Art by Laura Z 

Mixed Media Drawing and Painting  


I'm going to start out with some portraits and creative representations of the figure, then work my way into the weird stuff. I'll conclude with some nice landscapes and soothing semi-surrealism near the end. Think of it as a reward / apology for being subjected to the weirdest recesses of my deep, dark art brain. I'll thank you in advance!

I was tasked with creating a painting that could pass as a

At 4'6" x 4'6" this is my largest painting. I'd love to sell it before I ever have to move with it again: this one is a pain in the *^%$#&%$&^. But it's also one of my very best paintings. See if you can spot the lyrics to the chorus of the iconic song, hidden in images throughout the painting.
