Harley Davidson

ArtWhino Gallery is putting together a exhibit with a Harley Davidson theme at the end Feb, they also are using some gas tanks as canvases...I never painted on a gas tank before..the closes thing I came to  painting anything motor cycle-ish was a few helmets...backin the days when I had air brush fever..
It seemed like a fun idea and Im always up for a is what I have so far...Im planning on doing more blue flames on the side of the tank. Im sure I'll add more to as time goes on.

here are some shots of my Comfy studio..its not much..but I get plenty done in it..

A lesson for other artist

Back in Halloween 2010..I was asked to submit work by Chastity Sollmer of (ArtistsCompound ) out in Baltimore MD

( here is where you young artist come in )

Normally I like to get either a consigned contract or insurance on the art work for protection...but since this time around I was going on faith, I decided to pass on it and send in some work..

It took a while to get back the art because of scheduling purposes..but I was able to Drive up and get them while on a road trip..when I finally open up the packages to see some of my work chiped and scratch!..the frame isn't such a big deal..but the art work is another thing..

It was my dumb mistake to put faith into would be curators who doesn't respect the artist and there work.
when dealing with people in the art Business,,make sure ,,go over all the fine print and protect your self..
this isn't the first time,,and I'm sure it wont be the last...
I hope up coming artist take this lesson to heart and learn from it...



taking it back.. ELSTABO
