There have been times that another artist’s work inspired me so much that I’ve put my own spin on it. Saule Beksultanova creates beautiful graphic portraits of animals from her studio in Almaty, Kazakhstan. During the 2020 presidential election, I wanted to paint a series of portraits of blue donkeys and red elephants to represent the United States’ two major parties’ spirit animals (wink). One of my donkey portraits is based on the work of Saule. I transformed her iconic donkey head graphic with various shades and hues of the color blue, expressive, dark outlines and a perfect circle of my trademark daisy flowers.
