Is This Thing On? opening!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening at Gallery 1988 on Friday! It was a wild success. Such a wild success in fact, that there is talk of artists, and some of the comedians who appeared throughout the work, creating even more art for the closing party! Keep your eyes peeled on Gallery 1988's website for more details.

I was called upon to pay tribute to Paul Reubens, better known as Peewee Herman. The portrait of him is done in the style of my favorite artist, John Singer Sargent, but the handmade vinyl frame is pure Peewee, inspired by some of the furniture in his Playhouse. There was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in this one but I am thrilled with the results. The show will be up for another month or so, go check it out if you're in the LA area! I promise you it's worth it!

My sister also has a little writeup of the show on her website here.

Is This Thing On?

I've got a piece in the upcoming show at Gallery 1988 called "Is This Thing On?" which pays tribute to a plethora of gifted comedians, living and not-so-living alike. I was assigned the immense task of capturing Paul Reubens, aka PeeWee Herman, in all of his essence, in a single image. I'm super excited about my piece and can't wait to unveil it, but I'll give you a hint right now: there will be vinyl. lots of vinyl. sparkly, sparkly vinyl.
The artist lineup is killer and the show is going to be amazing. If you're in LA Friday night, it is the place to be.

some alla prima color studies to keep my hands warm. apparently the trick with alla prima is to not completely mix colors on your palette, but rather let all of the individual contributing pigments show through on your painting surface. Petar Meseldzija has a really wonderful blog post about this subject and a lot of other awesome things. reeeead it.
