"It Came from Hoboken" Opening

My opening night of "It Came from Hoboken" took place this past Saturday and I think the whole evening went great. Blu-Violet looked fantastic. The turnout was very good...there seemed to be a constant flow of people through the door the entire evening. The food and drink was excellent (Thanks, Travis). The most important part of the opening though was that I got a chance to meet and talk to a lot of really kool people.

My paintings were very well received and more than a handful of people expressed interest in getting their hands on a "Lactose Intolerance" t-shirt. Those should be making their way to the store in the next couple of weeks. In addition, I was beyond flattered that Cheryl, one of the Blu-Violet people and an artist herself, reinterpreted one of my images as a sculpture (see the pic further down in the post). Directly below is "Tiki Mug", which made its debut at the show.

I sincerely want to thank Carolyn for bringing my paintings in for a show at her store/gallery. I had a really great time. If you didn't have a chance to make it out for the opening, the show will be open for at least the next 2 months, so you still have plenty of time to stop by Blu-Violet.

As always I have to thank my wife, Wendy for helping me in so many ways in getting ready for my shows. She's the best!
