Tonight was the opening reception of ‘The Altered Paintings Project’ and the turnout was pretty fantastic! So was my beehive! There were some pretty great pieces in the show and some of them were snatched up in the first hour. There were some rad motifs including unicorns, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, ninjas and swirling masses of garbage in the ocean.

Recently, Redux Studios & Gallery in Alameda put out a call for artists for an upcoming art show called ‘Altered Paintings’ and I went in today and picked up the painting I’m going to alter.
