When it rains, it pours during. February is turning out to be pretty busy with the art shows. It’s a good “problem” to have. This one is a tribute to pin up artist Gil Elvgren, “All Pinned Up”. If you are in the neighborhood on February 8th, stop by Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim and enjoy our opening reception. We will have a bunch of artists showing their take on the works of Elvgren. As usual, I will wait and premiere my piece as we get closer. But put it in your calendar, hope to see you there. And thanks to Amy for letting me participate!

Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with a good name for a painting. Not so much with this one. I kind of knew what it would be before I even started to paint it. Itâ€™s too ridiculous not to use. Anyway, if you are just joining us, this new painting of Cassandra from Wayneâ€™s World is the 4th in a series I like to call â€œSultry Sirens of the Silver Screenâ€. Take a gander at the pieces below to see what I am talking about. The Jennifer painting from Back to the Future got some good attention from being a part of the 3B show at Gallery 1988 in Venice, CA. And theÂ â€œAndyâ€ painting was featured up in Astoria, Oregon as part of the Goonies show at Lunerboy. When this series started my idea was to get 12 of them and do a calendar. Well, only 8 to go i guess. So anyway, â€œCassandraâ€, I am a fan of Tia Carrere.Â That part â€œBallroom Blitzâ€ scene at the end of the first Wayneâ€™s World always made me feel kind of funny, â€œlike when you used to climb the rope in gym classâ€. Iâ€™m just not sure if she is worthy enough to be a part of this group of hot ladies from cult movies â€¦NOT.
Hope you like this series, drop me a note below and let me know what you think.
Now sit back, relax and travel back to a time when Mike Myers was funny.
