Title: Taxed to the Teeth
Medium: Oil on Gesso Paper (Framed)
Size: 40 x 30
Description: Started back in 1996, the painting tells a story of wedding on the beach. The groom is shown in a wheelchair and the bride is surrounded by nymphs, above everyone is a large child like figure that accidentally stumbled upon this wedding of miniature people while at the beach. That scene was inspired by an old episode of the Twilight Zone. In both top corners you can see large red balloons being held back by ribbon till the cerebration is complete. The “Taxed to the T” reflects the current state of the groom’s body being taxed and tired, while the T is short for teeth. So the full expression or saying would be “Taxed to the Teeth”.
This painting can viewed at the Urban Grind NE.
