A little about the painting and poster ……
My wife is Leslie Ditto. We are both great admires of Maynard James Keenan and is drive to create. One of his most recent endeavors is the music group Puscifer that he created in 2003. Leslie was given created freedom to create an image that reflects the spirit and mood of Puscifer’s Music . Keeping with Leslie’s stylized imagery that she is recognized for , she composed this piece to playfully symbolize Maynard’s personality and his alter ego in conjunction with Puscifer’s well recognized feminine devilish figure sitting upon the wing of the “Verde ” toy rocket driven by MJK.
To create this oil painting Leslie used a techniques from the Dutch Flemish Old Maters . First she painted an under painting in grays using oil paints. Then using oil paints and a personal mixture of medium and linseed oil she applies ,with artistic precision , many layers of transparent color glazes to create this effect. After the painting is complete and dry a Damar varnish was applied.
