Following up on Wednesdays image, here is one of the first paintings from my Donkey series. This series was started in 1996 after I had lived for a short time in Puerto Rico. I originally started this body of work with what would later become the Wall series in mind. These works feature the downtrodden and lowly donkey. Not an animal one considers grandiose such as a horse or lion, tiger or bear but mearly a simple ass. Yet without this beast of burden working alongside humans for nearly five thousands years, humanity would be a much different thing. The first donkey caravans laid the groundwork for todays globalization and were the first highways and "internet" of it's day, spreading goods, ideas and cultural exchanges to the civilizations they connected.

Here's a familiar face. This photo was taken last summer while in Italy. We took our daughter to the Pombia Safari Park in northern Italy and came across this guy. As you might know I'm pretty familiar with donkeys but this is the first time I've seen an albino one.
In 2014 I will be offering more things for sale on ScaneLife starting with these hand printed silk screened t-shirts. The design is a drawing of the ScaneLife logo, a laughing donkey head surrounded by a halo, printed with 2 colors of ink on various shirts. I am trying out different styles and vendors to see which will be the permanent line for ScaneLife and because of this the styles, sizes and colors are unique and limited. There are both men's, women's and some child sizes and styles. I would love to get your feedback about the colors, styles and sizes that you would wear and like to see on ScaneLife so please leave a comment below if you could.
To kick off this new line of wearable art I'm offering a 20% discount code for 1 week only. Type in "Art Shirt" at checkout and get 20% off.
Thanks for your support!
