First Solo Show @ Pollard Gallery (Sept - Nov 2012)

I have my first solo show coming up in about 3 weeks!
I'll have four or five new paintings; none are quite finished yet. A few ("Slaughterman", "Study of a Girl" and one yet to be determined) will be in nice refinished wood frames. These frames were sold to me by a very nice woman for WAY way too cheap at a yard sale in New Berlin because I told her I had my first solo show coming up; amazingly she just asked how much I had in my pocket and sold them to me for that.

Anywho, I am trying to refinish those frames today but I feel high from heat-gun fumes and am trying to track down a I'm taking a computer break.

Here's the info and the flyer:

Opening Reception:

Phish Painting

Don't let this painting fool you-- I do not like the band Phish.  

That said-- they do have cool concert posters. And I am dating a Phish fan.

I wanted to buy him this particular Phish tour poster for his birthday last year but apparently their tour posters are like $100+ on eBay.  

So I made a huge cradled board out of maple wood and painted the image instead. The original design is not my own (I wish it was) -- it's by DKNG Studios.

And in Phish fan language, this is the poster from 6/4/11 Cuyahoga Falls, OH brah.
