    Here are eight paintings that I've started blocking in for the Open Studios Tour next month. This is from my series of children in costume...none of who seem to have wanted their photo taken.

  • Murmuration - Solo Show

    x


    The following paintings will be in my solo show "Murmuration" at Henry Road, in Studio City, California. If you're interested in any of the pieces below, please contact Paula at Henry Road and she will be happy to help you. She can be contacted by email at info@henryroad.com or by phone (818.762.8966). 

    The opening of the show is tomorrow night from 5 until 8 p.m., so if you're in the L.A. area, I hope you can stop by and check out the show! Paula's openings are always a blast and Henry Road is one of my favorite store/galleries on the planet. I will be drunk by 5:30. 

    Thanks for checking out the paintings!

  • Murmuration at Henry Road

     

    Matt is busy in the studio finishing up all the wonderful paintings for his upcoming show Murmuration at Henry Road in Studio City. The show opens on Saturday, June 2, 5-8 p.m. and we'll be there, so stop by and say hi and see the new birds that have come to roost.

  • The Phantom Project

     

    Today I dropped off three paintings at a vacant furniture store in downtown Paso Robles. I know it sounds strange, but it's where the next pop-up art show called Phantom Project sponsored by the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is being held from May 5 - June 2. It's actually a spectacular, 10,000 square foot space, with an old-fashioned vault on the second level. The opening is Saturday, May 5 from 6 - 9 p.m. and the gallery space is open Fridays & Saturdays 12 - 9 p.m. and Sundays 12 - 6 p.m. I'll be at the opening as well as on Friday, May 11 from noon - 3. 

    Here are the three pieces I will have in the show.


    Claude, 36" x 36", oil on canvas


    Albert, 24" x 24", oil on canvas


    The Mourning Doves, 48" x 36", oil on canvas

    Frantic says:

    Here is a new painting I just finished. It's the first in a series of paintings I'm doing from a vintage photo I found of a class of children dressed up in adult clothes. The paintings will be debuting this October at the San Luis Obispo Open Studios Tour.

    On a side note, Mincy kept calling him Danny, and when I said that I'd named him Tommy, he said I couldn't name him that because he knew a kid in school when he was little named Tommy and he was a jerk. I told him it was my painting and not our child, so he didn't get to help pick the name. This is an example of important arguments we have in the studio.
