As usual, please forgive my horrible digital shots. There are many more fantastic pieces in this show than what I have pictured here, it was painful to create just a sampling! But the show is still on, and if you want to see all the stunning pieces you gotta get down to PG Gallery and Cafe! Show ends May 17, 2014.

Incidentally, I wrote this post while drinking a White Russian.
I hope to post a nice little feature on the Big Lebowski in Little China show soon, but in the meantime I can definitely show you the evolution of Miao Yin from a digital painting to a beaded mixed-media piece with gold ink accents! (I ended up calling the final piece “Miao Miao” through some perverse desire to be a truly horrible person.)
This piece is at PG Gallery until May 17 2014 and is only $85. And trust me, I’m not making another beaded one. One was quite enough!! *PHEW!*
EDIT: This lovely piece has found a home with its biggest fan! I even got to talk to the person who got it, she’s super-sweet. There’s just nothing like seeing one of your pieces go home with someone you know loves it.
I elected to do a dual portrait of the beautiful Miao Yin, “The Girl With the Green Eyes” from Big Trouble in Little China for the upcoming Big Lebowski in Little China show this April 19th!
I’ll be collaging gold and red paper elements, beads and perhaps some fabric onto this, but I wanted to give you a little preview of the digital underpainting!
Yes. It’s coming…a group art show centered around the mashup of two cult movie legends, The Big Lebowski and Big Trouble in Little China. The show opens at PG gallery the evening of April 19th, during the Earth Day Art Crawl, and will feature works based on either movie or both movies combined in one picture. I’m working on a Big Trouble in Little China oriented piece myself.
