Little Monsters gallery show

I'm excited to fill you in on a little thing I've been hinting at here and there. I'll be having a gallery show at Little Monsters in Lake Orion, Michigan that opens at the beginning of June and runs through July. The show, Animal Behavior, includes a variety of new paintings and prints. 

Little Monsters, if you haven't been, is the most amazing toy store that happens to have a small gallery space in back with a rotating exhibition schedule. The shop has a fantastic selection of unusual toys, educational games — definitely fun for all ages! 

We haven't set a date yet for an opening reception, but I will let you know as soon as I know — I've got a special surprise planned for it. In the meantime, I thought I'd start teasing you with a sneak peak of one of the new pieces. You might have caught a glimpse of it on my Facebook page. This one was inspired by a Rockwell Kent engraving for Moby Dick I saw at the recent DIA exhibition Once Upon a Time: Prints and Drawings That Tell a Story. (Sorry I didn't tell you about that one sooner — it was outstanding, but closed yesterday.) Stay tuned for more!
