Goofy Girl and Hellsapoppin'



9x12 oil on linen top is the final pushed for contrast.

Here is a little nude that will hopefully be in a book of nudes Ashley Wood and I hope to do in the next year of so...



Wow! suddenly everything just crept up on me the trip to NY has me all out of wack. So many things!




The group show at Kroll/Roberts
Everything is converging.



I was just featured in the informed art collector. cut and paste:

I'm in the CAC Gold Metal show
See the link- CACa bit higher up------------------------->>>>>>>



and this little talk with a small group of paintings.


and under artist I like--- showing now!





Hurry and catch this luminous show at the Forum Gallery in NY. Steven Assael. I wasn't blown away by his work online, but in person... it's some pretty jaw dropping Rembrandt channeling.

Congratulations on all!! You also got nominated for the "Best Art Blog" about a week ago, but I'll be danged if I can find the url for it again--ran across it several nights ago when I was looking for the show that you and Tim Horn did together before. Don't get running so fast that you turn into a blur....

Your's and Wood's works are very complimentary after a fashion...now for ya to send off one of yours down under for him to put in a 'bot sitting in one of your waste'scaps...an admirer's collaboration wet(paint) dream.

I can't get away from this Goofy Girl. She's in the house, garage, water heater closet and now the blog.

Sharon, how funny!! Over the years you must have lived with whole casts of characters and alternate identities hiding under couches, sitting on windowsills and lurking in all of Bill's closets--could be 'interesting'... (-:

Those paintings at the top, particularly the second one are the coolest things I've seen in a long while.

I love the goofy girl, I love that there's a realism mixed in with the face.
