 Tonight I have a new piece in a group show at The Art Grist gallery. The show is a tribute to Salvador Dali. When they approached me about the show I was a little hesitant because I'm not a huge Dali fan although I love the surrealists. However, I started looking through his work and found a pixelated image of his wife which intrigued me. I've always likened the term pixelated to someone who is slightly eccentric or mentally disordered, and I like the idea of the fractured mind.
Come out and say hi if your in Highland Park for the artwalk!

I created the image in Photoshop like I would an illustration, so I have had giclee prints made, and will have prints for sale as well as the framed print on display.

Here is the inspiration:

I've been doing these Civil War drawings for years now and I thought they would make cool dish ware. Here are two ceramic bowls that I recently hand painted.
