Part of an ongoing series and collaboration with an animal sanctuary in New Jersey. The baby goats are often comforted by the funny outfits, so, ducky onesies are in order. "I wanted to make artwork that was more than just about the animals, as sweet as they are," says Dana. Incorporating hand stenciled patterns and a touch of gold helps tie in the work to her more recent creations. The pattern also helps bring the main subjects of the artwork forward and frame them in a pleasing manner.

Dana Aldis

Gallup, New Mexico

“I am, what one model once quipped, an overly educated artist,” jokes artist Dana Aldis. Her creative practice is grounded in a strong foundation in academic arts. Dana’s training is apparent in the very fine execution of detail seen in her work, plus her consideration of subject matter. “I pay attention to the implied symbolism in the imagery I choose,” Dana says. Moths, which are featured in her “30 September Moths” series, hold symbolic meaning across multiple cultures. Each moth is rendered against a delicately painted background. Dana draws inspiration for her patterns from art books and fabric shops.

Hi Carl, thanks for the question about my Moth Series. The series started when I joined a 30 day art challenge, and I decided to keep the artwork size small (6x6) so I could complete the artwork in the specific time crunch. It is also a size that I work with a lot. thanks again, Dana

Ms. Aldis, I admire your moth paintings but wonder why so small? Did you do them larger in the past and they didn't sell?; or did you decide to do them 6 x 6 from the get-go? Just curious.
