Took a break from painting in preparation for my open studio to walk down to Bushwick Gallery Norte Maar for the opening of SO HAPPY TOGETHER.
For nine Wednesdays, four of which I attended, artist and show curator Julie Torres had a group of artists meet up at the Hyperallergic HQ to eat, drink, and draw & paint in a collaborative format, I wrote about this recently here.
It opened as part of Arts In Bushwick, 5th Annual Bushwick Open Studios.
Along with the 100 collaborative pieces, all 45 artists were invited to display one solo work. Pictured above are the solo pieces Molly and I put in the show.

Here I am with my Sketch365 piece titled "JOLLY ROGER"
I colored Medusa's face on #39.
Molly did some coloring and drew little chicks on the piece on the bottom center.
I did some highlights on the ball on #20, and I put the yellow word balloon with the word "meow" on #89.
The pencil portion of this piece I did years ago for Maxim UK. It was part of a larger drawing. The guy was humping a confused dog. Someone else who collaborated on it changed the dog into a tree. They also glued an Art Sucks button to the piece, and painted on it.

Activist, artist & Norte Maar's co-founder and director Jason Andrew explains how bidding on pieces work. Place a bid, when the open studios ends if you haven't been outbid you get the piece. If you want to leave with the piece immediatly, for one hundred fifty dollars you will be able to walk out with it- the buy it now price.
Just before I left a patron bought the one piece Molly had a hand in. He was nice enough to pose for me with the piece.
I left to the most unbelievable sunset. Now to finish painting...
