One of my most popular pieces, Movie Night, recently took home the Judges’ Choice Award for Contemporary Art Gallery Online’s 2021 All Animal Competition. I am thrilled for this recognition and to share it with you. This is such a fun and beautiful piece from my “Party Animalz!” series. The painting was born when movie and t.v. nights became a regular for us. One night we were watching a particularly tough episode of Survivor in which a certain underdog player was just getting crushed both mentally and physically. I started to think about what animal to represent this player for my next party series. And it popped into my head. “A Raccoon!” I blurted out. Without batting an eye, Marie knew exactly what I was doing and yelled back “Tossing popcorn!” And thus Movie Night! was born.
P.S. Did you know that I offer interest-free installment plans on any of my current paintings? If you love one of my paintings, I want you to have that painting in your life! Installment plan is super easy opportunity to bring a Will Eskridge original into your home.
