> Crickets, Acrylic on Birch Panel, 18 x 18".

I recently finished this painting for a show at Grasshut in Portland, opening this weekend. To quote Bwana Spoons:

"Balls Out! As in, give it all you have.That’s the theme of this group art show.

March 7th (1st Friday)
Grass Hut
811 E. Burnside
Portland, Oregon 97214

All the artists involved were giving a panel of wood to paint, ink, felt of do whatever they do best onto.
Who are these folks?

Grass Hut is also going Balls Out with our grand reopening in the new space (the old Denwave space next door). A bigger space became necessary once the openings became too crammed to see the art.
The studio is bigger so Bwana, Scrappers and all the other residents will have more room to grow. The shop inventory is fully stoked with all new books, zines and Gargamel Kaiju figures (the finest Japanese goofy monster toys). The gallery is bigger and totally free to change shape with each new show. More space, more driftwood, more river rock and more fun."
