Spring 2020 - Happy Spring, everyone! I hope everyone is doing well despite the obvious tough times. 

I am pleased to announce I have a special deal worked out with one of my favorite models from the LeslieLohman Erotic Drawing group named Gabriel (his burlesque performer name: Sloppi Chulo) to sell small prints of the 5 best paintings I've done of him in the last few years. 

They are good quality color prints, quite framable - prices range from $15. - $25. with free shipping. D.M. him for details through his Instagram account: @sloppi_chulo (and definitely check out his "Only Fans" account - only $10. a month at onlyfans.com/sloppi_chulo )!

November - December 2019
November/December 2019 - As far as exhibitions, I'm happy to be finishing out the year in this cool group show called Art & AIDS: Alegria at the main LeslieLohman Museum space down on Wooster/Grand street! The curators have chosen three portaits I've done recently... it's a show of artists involved with GMHC, and although it's about HIV & AIDS, it focuses on the aspect of "celebrating life" (Alegria). The show is already up and will be on display until Jan. 5, 2020. The opening reception will be next tuesday, 12/3, from 6-8, please come! Click on the image for further info.
