I have a 2 person show with Ben Strawn tomorrow night Gallery1988LA, September 30. Opening reception will be from 7-10. At drop off I got to see what Mr. Strawn had going on and wow, was I impressed! I'm going to have to obtain a piece of his someday. He paints on layers of glass which give a really nice dimensional feel, and all situated in these awesome custom made and painted shadow boxes. Plus his technique is great and his subject matter is really fun.
I did 7 paintings accompanied by 7 studies. Would have loved to do a bit more, but I'm still trying to figure out this whole full time dad of twins and full time painter thing. I did get a step closer with this experience for sure. If you are in the area, please come by and say hi! Here is the piece that was used for the postcard:
There are 35 balloons which was my age when the boys where born. Changed my life. It's been a challenge, but so much fun!
