Well, the time is finally upon us! What is this I speak of you ask? Well, Gallery 1988
asked me to be in a 4 man art show a couple months ago and I said yes! Then they told me that I needed to paint 20-30 paintings for the show! Yikes!
That was 18 paintings ago... and now the show is opening at Gallery 1988
next week! Tuesday August 15th at 7PM with Thomas Han
, Bwana Spoons
, and Scott Morse
! If I sell a lot of paintings, maybe they will ask me to be in some more shows and maybe eventually earn a solo show! It all depends on you guys...
This painting is called "Tex Mex", and was the first of the food series to be based on a real person! My friend Ricky Garduno and I were eating at a diner, and I saw this guy eaing a taco salad. He just happened to look exactly like one of my paintings. So, I drew him and ran home and did a painting even he would be proud of, I hope.
I'm going to post a painting everyday form now and the show, so stay tuned...
