Here’s a recently finished painting for the upcoming “Anicomically Correct” show at Distinction Gallery, this Saturday, July 9th. The reception for goes from 6-10PM, and I’ll be there, hanging out and chatting. The show is loosley based around comic-related art in conjunction with the San Diego Comic Con, which I can talk about more later. Full show details below:
It was especially rewarding, as I had originally started a different painting which I ultimately wasn’t feeling. I gave that one up, wanting to really just have fun with the painting, and a few days later, this was born. There’s nothing like the feeling of being okay with giving up on something that isn’t working, refocusing, and creating something else that you really can find joy doing, and ends up more resolved, better and more fun to work on than your previous effort. This was a fun piece to do, and if you were following my tweets on the Twitter, you got to see the painting evolve over time. Here’s a couple of those shots, pardon the terrible iPhone quality. Enough rambling. Enjoy “Overflow.” For purchase inquiries, please visit the Distinction website or contact Melissa Walker.
