Winter Wonderland

OTIS O. BONDS

Art Soiree hosted it’s 3rd Annual Winter Wonderland on December 28, 2102 at Malmaison. A group of talented local artists used the magic of art to bring alive the magic of winter. I was excited to paint my spectacular model, Otis O. Bonds.  I created a magical scene on his body with the Winter Fairy bringing snow and ice to the dead trees of winter. I also live-painted a canvas painting titled My painting is titled “Ben’s Winter Wonderland” and was inspired on a photograph taken by the late Ben Koomen. It is a combination of the serene and beauty of freshly fallen snow encased in a glass globe surrounded by pine trees. His favorite time of year was winter where he would fly to the mountains and experience his own wonderland. I was inspired by his photograph as well as his love for helping others. Ben Koomen and I worked alongside for almost 4 years at GeneDx, a rare diagnostics genetics company based in Gaithersburg, MD.

I'm a visual artist that is only limited by the colors of the rainbow. I have painted on large plywood, painted on canvases, painted large murals in homes, and have even dabbled in the art of body painting. I try to never let anything stand in my way and continue to let my ambition steer me towards my vision.
