Wollensak Model 46 Movie Camera

12" x 12"  oil on canvas I do not want you thinking that I do everything The Spousal Unit tells me, but... The background of this painting was gray—well, my version of gray anyway—until She Who Must Be Obeyed walked into the studio and gave it one of Her looks. BAM! The artist changed the background from gray to red—well, my version of red anyway. You are probably thinking, "What the heck? Two movie cameras in a row. What gives, Raymond?" All I can say is that due to my somewhat addictive behavior (that I am not seeking any professional help for), the studio now has several—let's keep it vague at several—old movie cameras residing in it. That means more movie camera paintings are coming down the pike. Do not ask me when, I have no idea. They will happen when the muse grabs me by the throat and throttles me until I relent and paint them. Yes, my internal muse can be a bit violent.

Month of May Happenings
I have two shows and high hopes that The Spawn will remember Mother's Day! (I am not holding my breath on that last one.)
Beyond the Lines Gallery - Bergamot Station
The title for this show is In the Midst of Colour. It will be a two person show, what the art world now calls a tandem solo show, with Jan Lord and me. Beyond the Lines Gallery is located in the amazing Bergamot Station gallery complex. Show: May 13th to 21st. Opening reception Saturday, May 13th from 6-9 pm. More info to come.
The Beverly Hills Art Show
The big news about this upcoming show is that I will be located in a different space. I will be in the same park—the 100s—but I will be in the middle of the park rather than near the southeast corner. Space #130 will be my new home. So, if you are a regular, remember to look for me in the middle of the first park between Rodeo and Beverly Boulevards. Show: Saturday & Sunday, May 20th & 21st / 10am to 6pm both days. More info to come.
