A special Halloween treat…

by ncwinters on October 6, 2009

…for all you good little trick or treaters.

So maybe it isn’t quite for Halloween, but I’ve got some new art in an upcoming show this October. Saturday, October 10 is the date of “Striptease”: a pinup/burlesque themed art show at Distinction Gallery in Escondido. I will be showing four new pieces alongside some other amazing artists.  I’m very excited. I focused on four of my favorite pinup/alternative models: Dita Von Teese, Miss Mosh, Angela Ryan and Apnea. It will also be cool to be back at Distinction Gallery, where I spent a few years renting a studio. I’ll be there with the new addition to our family, and hope to see you all there. I’m very proud of this work and I think it demonstrates some new growth in my acrylic works on wood.

Full details for the show are as follows:
