Bus Stop, downtown and another show???




Yes another group show with much talent including my bra Tony Peters...

Go, I'm cutting way back shows in 2009.

It's at Martha Higgins--------->>>> Check the link------->>>>>

Oil on board with sanded modeling paste.
Downtown I think 5th St below main or so in the Toy district. A transvestite was waiting for a bus after a shopping spree. Shelooked happy until I photographed her, thus her head down. Since this is a small painting I didn't even try to do the detail that would give away her masculine side. That might be for a bigger painting. Sorry about the glare from the paste texture.

The pattern of color and light inside the shop door (mylar streamers?) really nails the compositition. Another winner.

I keep going back to the edge work and color transitions on the top of the overhang. Lovely job there.

I love this work without the detail; it's loose, moody, perfect!

A subject close to my heart - if you swapped the tranny for a street crawler or some other kind of urban bottom feeder. But I suppose trannys are fair artistic game too. Love the lighting and the stuff hanging off the ceiling. Guess you can afford to throw one of these in every so often.. and I'm glad you chose this one.
