Friends Show Pictures

These aren’t gallery in action shots, but some simple ones from my camera showing how the work was set up.

It’s all about to come down soon. We had a nice closing despite Hurricane Irene’s party poopery. Lorrie Saunders kept her gallery open the eve of the storm and I’m grateful for that.

Glenn Arthur with some Allison Sommers on the back wall.

Nomi Chi drawings that I covet.

Two works by Cate Rangel are what you see as soon as you walk in the front door.

Here is a blurry photo of Jason’s work not quite doing them justice!

My wall of work.

Jessica McCourt’s beauties.

More Nomi Chi.

Odds & Ends

Jason and I are still preparing for Stuntkid & Friends Show this coming saturday in Norfolk VA. It’s pretty rad having a bedroom full of art by artists that you’ve admired for a long time through the warped lens of the internet. It’s better in real life.

In stark comparison my studio area seems to be full of unfinshed paintings. I may need to get a dehumidifier to deal with my paint refusing to dry to workable point.

This weekend I got to take some concept photos with the adorable burlesque performer Marla Meringue. Which means no one will see anything that came out of it for quite a while, but she definitely helped me plan on a few future paintings.

Here’s a peak at some portrait studies from school and home.

Slumber Party Sibyls

Above are two new paintings for an upcoming show in Norfolk VA at the Lorrie Saunders Art Gallery.

I remember pulling out my Ouija Board as a kid and trying to contact ghosts, get dating advice and freak out my friends who had parents that had taught them that it was a tool of Satan. Early on my father taught me about the ideomotor effect but that didn’t ruin the game for me. For some reason my friends and I focused on summoning demon clowns, but then Stephen King’s IT did come on daytime television regularly.

On the way back from Philly, Jason and I stopped at a psychic and had my palm read. I didn’t have my wedding ring on. The psychic told me that I’d make a great doctor(I freak at the sight of blood) and I shouldn’t marry the first person who asks me(oops, too late!)
