A couple of new paintings.

 Eddie Currents 20"x16" collage, oil paint, and graphite drawing.
  Sally Forthe 11"x14" collage, oil paint, and graphite drawing on masonite.
 Morry Eale 20"x16" collage, oil paint, and graphite drawing on masonite.

These paintings are going to be part of my show called: Renovated Reputations: Paintings and Fiction inspired by Vintage Portrait Photographs

The exhibit will include a series of 20-40 paintings and mixed media works ranging in size from 8"x10" to 18"x24" framed with thrift store and vintage frames.  In addition to the exhibited works ArtHaus is publishing catalogs signed by me and as many of the authors as possible.  Catalogs/books will consist of image of the painting with the text of the "flash story" surrounding the image.  If I can get the authors to come to a book signing/party, authors would sign their pages for some of the printed stuff.

The reception is FRIDAY APRIL 8TH from 6PM-8PM
COME IN VINTAGE COSTUME!!!
We're going to have a photobooth at the reception,
YOUR PORTRAIT COULD BECOME A PAINTING!

Do you like to write microfiction?  I'm looking for people to write stories about these characters.  The best story wins a drawing of the character you're writing about.
