Vintage Model : The Urban Legends Show @ Alpha Cult Long Beach


One of the two pieces I have in the Urban Legends Show . I hadn't worked in watercolor in ten years or so. I was terrified to begin, but after ten big hand spins, spooksville turned to giggle city. A groovy scene change from the electric paint set.

Sk8 to the finish


Monday, put on the finishing touches. 91º degree weather helped take some of the tacky off the oils but let's face it it's still pretty tacky. Next stop.... Long Beach.
