Big Eyed Ladies and Other Creatures, featuring artwork after Ingres and Raphael, incorporating pop culture, while embracing Contemporary motif and techniques often seen in Pop Surrealism.
THE FINAL WORD
Thank you to everyone who came out to support my new life as a visual artist, and to those who supported me in spirit. It was a fabulous evening.
A huge thank you to the folks who bought a piece of my artwork. I know you will take good care of the “ladies and other creatures”.
Over 100 partygoers arrived at the Black Olive Restaurant (Penelope’s Cafe) to enjoy whisky, wine, and hor d’oeuvres. It was a sunny late afternoon event, without a raindrop in sight.
The paintings were hung by the chimney with care – erp – ok, ok, it’s not a Christmas story – but it sure felt like it by the end of the night! I sold six out of ten paintings along with one giclee reproduction. Together with the Black Olive Restaurant, we also raised $427.60 for the Garth Homer Society ARTWORKS FUND
ORIGINAL ARTWORK STILL AVAILABLE
GICLEE REPRODUCTIONS AVAILABLE

Saint Squirrel: Protecting You ‘Cause You’re Nuts was in attendance at the Big Eyed Ladies show. He wasn’t for sale, but was coveted by many. I will keep you posted on the paintings that will be available for sale at the Secret Squirrels Show. Mermaid Squirrel: Standing On Her Own Two Feet is currently on the easel, and she’s going to be a real cutie-pie.
