Working Title

UPDATE! 1/11/12 Actually, lots of updates (photos) throughout this post.
UPDATE! 3/5/12 You can see all of the work from the show (and what is still available for purchase here:

"Four weeks of evolving artworks created collaboratively between CO Exhibitions' parent companies Permanent Art & Design Group and Burlesque of North America along with a roster of hand-selected Twin Cities artists.

For the entire run of WORKING TITLE, dozens of pieces of art will be passed around, communally embellished, tinkered with, and re-worked in CO's Northeast Minneapolis gallery space, as well as in the artists’ own studios. Each week for four weeks, a new opening reception will occur, and each week the artwork will change--fluctuating not only in style, concept, and number of contributors, but also in price, scale, and media. Pieces sold at any given opening will not be worked on further, remaining on display as they were at the time of purchase.

Bike Art Book

Some of my bicycle themed paintings are featured in this new book:

Bike Art * Bicycles In Art Around the World by Kiriakos Iosifidis.

 When I was approached about participating in this book early last year I had no idea how amazing and beautiful it was going to turn out. I just received my copy in the mail and it is FABULOUS beyond my wildest expectations.

You can buy it (and take another peek inside) at
Thank you, Kiriakos! I am so lucky to be included in your book.

Penn and Pumpkin approve of their pet portraits!
