Hello Lurkers and Lurkettes-

It's been a productive year so far, I'm excited to say. Three big shows are in the works, which will keep me pretty busy this year. The newly relocated Tigerlily Salon on Higuera will be hosting a group show. I usually hate theme related shows, but this one seemed pretty cool and it has a lot of my fave peeps in it. Enticed yet? Yeah, whatever. Eat Your Heart Out will include my pals Lena, Sawdust, Lisa, Lakin and Issac. Show's on Friday, February 1st from 6p to 9p. Here's a dandy flyer:

In other news, I was asked to curate a show at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles. The Young Savages showcase will provide exposure for about 25 emerging or burgeoning artists. The list is super long, you should look at this flyer:
It's like...everyone, right? Well, almost. There are some really good artists that I didn't ask, but they will make an appearance at a later show. The main point of the show was to infuse a little youth into the gallery scene up there. I thought it was funny for them to ask me to lead a youth movement show, as I am no spring chicken, but "Mid-to-Late-Thirties Savages" just didn't have the same ring to it, despite the truth of it all.
Either way, I'm excited to see what some of the newer, twenty-something artists that we've invited into the fold will come up with. You should be too, many pieces will be under $200, and 2013 is a great year to buy original artwork from some up and comers. The show is on Saturday, March 2nd, from 5 to 8. Check the flyer for the address, lazy butts.

So, I've decided to go back to painting acrylic on canvas. I know I said I'd never do it, internet, but I didn't have a choice. I'm sorry, but you won't be disappointed. Check the Flickr for more info, in the meantime here's one of hopefully many pieces I make this year:
Haven't shown this one, titled The Uneasy Alliance, just yet, but it is for sale. Inquire within if you are interested. Goodbye for now, lurkers, thanks for stopping by.
