3 Shows in 3 weeks: N.Y

October 28th, The Thursday before Halloween Mike A. will be presenting the 3rd Annual FANGORIA, a Group Horror Art Show. It's at G2 on Ave A. between 6th and 7th. NYC. Don't miss it!

This is the piece I'm working on for the show. I'm also juggling my internship, a large freelance project, and prepping for all my next shows. I should be doing back work too but I'm just putting it aside yet again. Ahh. I could take out a coffee plantation...

Scanned with a little digital color. I have a few working titles...

It's 8"x12", refreshing (and realistic) after doing the 30"x40", but I plan to have another 30"x40" for The Contrast Art Show.

Materials that go into my paintings: gamsol, cold pressed linseed oil, thickened linseed oil, matte medium, array of sandpaper/sandblocks, 3 ply oak panels, cotton rag paper, workable fixative, oils, graphite, colored pencils, sable to boars hair brushes- synthetic and authentic, drafting tools, various erasers and a lot of love. I was at the art store today and realizing how often I've been going. I'm starting to buy in bulk, hard to carry by heels and subway though.

Again, don't miss this. It's gonna be big.

I need to take good photos, these are just snaps (I was painting up until the morning of the show). These are from Beast. I sold two originals (rabbits: Chloe and Sophia) and a print. It will be up for the rest of the month.

'Pray' 30"x40" before going to Beast.
