Pecos Bill's and The Cityscape Show VII

24"x24" oil on canvas Whenever I need to throw food at Spawn Number One to appease the beast, I go to this local landmark. And, seeing how the place contributes to peace in our clan, I thought I would take a crack at painting it (twice). Pecos Bill's produces the messiest sandwiches—Okies—on Planet Earth. Closing time is usually when they run out of meat and the place is so popular that they usually run out of meat. Not only are Okies inherently messy, but Spawn Number One likes to order them with extra sauce, which makes them unidentifiable as sandwiches. They become more like swamps you shove in your mouth. Tasty swamps, but swamps nonetheless. My Pecos Bill's paintings, along with several other of my works, are currently on display in The Cityscape Show VII at the George Billis Gallery in Culver City. In an attempt to try something different, I have included below pictures of all the pieces in the show. They are not to scale, so I have posted their corresponding sizes. And yes, the red dots are me bragging about sales.

The above pieces are all in the show, except the larger "The 101 Coffee Shop," which the collector decided to take home before the show ended. It is a great group show that includes the very diverse work of some pretty impressive artists. The show runs until August 19th. If you get a chance, go check it out.
