New artwork and last minute show update!

by ncwinters on February 26, 2010

I wanted to be more timely with my updates for the new year, but it looks like 2010 won’t be bringing that resolution to pass.

The show is Night of the Nick Nacks, tomorrow night at Gallery Meltdown in Los Angeles. Artists were asked to create works inspired by the movie Return to Oz and the books of L. Frank Baum. While I hadn’t seen the movie in ages, without a doubt I had to go with Tik Tok. This is another painting on paper, mounted to wood, and I really think I’ve found my groove in this medium.

Opening Reception: February 27, 2010, 6-10pm. Exhibition runs through March 23, 2010. Hope to see you at the show!


Acrylic on paper, mounted to wood panel, resined. 16″ x 24″

Dude… I wish I could afford that. TikTok’s my favorite Oz character and you really captured him. Great NMM work! Cheers and drop me a line if you’re ever back in the Old Pueblo! -Bill

Brilliant stuff. I’m a big fan of the Oz books, and this is a great Tik Tok.

You’re blowing my mind NC. The depth, the detail, the color modulation!
