My slightly S&M tribute painting to Velazquez, “Lady with a Fan Thinks You’ve Been Very Bad” is now on view at the best cocktail bar around, The Velvet Tango Room. Trust me I’ve done the tours around this country, and nothing ever seems quite as good as VTR. They saw the craft cocktail craze coming about 15 years before it hit!
Thanks to all who came out for the Diego Velazquez: Remixed show. It will be up thru March. Here’s a photo of me and my finished piece, looking all smug and uppity thanks to my good friend, beer!
There’s also a video of the works on display…
It was nice to see folks I hadn’t had a chance to talk to in a while, plus meet some new people in the flesh who I’d only known thus far in the realm of Internetland.
Was also happy to see this week Little Chimp Society pimping the next exhibition I’m in, The G40 Arts Summit. I’ll have several of my more surreal paintings on display during the month of March for this shindig, looks like it will be a blast, wish I could make the trip to DC for it!
I’m just about done with her! I chose the painting “Lady with a Fan” and made her just a tad naughty. Gallery liked just this teaser so much, it’ll be the image on the postcards…
The show is taking place Friday, February 19th at Wall Eye Gallery 5304 Detroit Ave Cleveland, OH 44102, 216.640.7769. I’m told the Cleveland Museum of Art will be sending some of their curators and experts to come have a gander.
