Twenty Small Paintings at Colorado Conservatory of Dance

September 28, 2013

I put up twenty small paintings at the Colorado Conservatory of Dance with my good friends and patrons, Heather and Jake Sutton.

These are for sale and the prices range from $40-80. The goal for this year was to try out smaller, cheaper, less skully paintings, and this will be a good chance to test ’em out in a kid-friendly setting yep yep!

Special thanks to @tcabeen for providing some of the titles.

Hey, this triptych printed on three 12″x16″ stretched canvases is available for $200, y’all.

These will be prints on canvas. The sides of the canvas will be black.

These paintings are about dance moves, and they were done quickly in late 2008.

Here is a photo of the actual prints. Dangit, the black color on the bottom of the originals screwed up the bottom.

Paintings at Luscious Nectar, Fort Collins

July 7, 2013

Checkemitout I’ve got paintings showing at the Luscious Nectar smoothie bar up in Fort Collins, Colorado during July 2013.

I was not able to attend the opening, but there appears to have been some breakin’ dancin’.

I will be live painting July 19 at this location.

I think both these photos were taken by the promoter and DJ, Chris Whitman.
