Painting Mickey Mouse

Mickey Circa?, 12×12, oil on panel-work in progress

Sometimes I find things unexpectedly that I want to paint. Such is the case with this Mickey Mouse stuffed doll. I saw in in the thrift store. He appears to be loved. Perhaps his ears have been replaced. Maybe his ears came like that. He even has his tag. I haven’t completed the lettering on the tag. I hope to finish painting Mickey this week..

I thought I had more pictures of him in the different stages of painting but I do not. I also spent this week applying for an MFA program. I hope I get in.

Thank you so much for liking my painting and following me here and on social media.

My best,
Emily Warren

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty. I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting. I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery. I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.
