My first REAL showing just happened because of a member right here at ATS. FattyP has a store in Toronto which is called Conspiracy Culture and, about a year ago, we talked about maybe hanging some of my artwork in his store. August 21, my wife and I made the trip to his place and I hung 12 paintings which tied into a conspiracy theme. Most of them are already in this thread because i've been working on them for 2 years.
Here are some thumbnails of the paintings hanging, starting with the store symbol which I did NOT design, but wish I had and finishing with a pic of fattyP 'on the job'.

The term pareidolia (pronounced /pɛɹaɪˈdoliə/ or /pæɹaɪˈdəʊliə/), referenced in 1994 by Steven Goldstein, describes a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hidden messages on records played in reverse. The word comes from the Greek para- — beside, with or alongside — and eidolon — image (the diminutive of eidos — image, form, shape). Pareidolia is a type of apophenia.
Norval Morrisseau's death yesterday at Toronto General Hospital, at age 75 after a long and feisty battle with Parkinson's disease, won't end of the gritty story of the great Anishinabe painter once called "the Picasso of the north" who signed his canvases "Miskwaabik Animiki" or Copper Thunderbird
the magnifying glass and toothpicks is certainly not the easy route. they look awesome.

I started painting a few years back but only digital.
I am just now picking up acrylics and air brushing. You have inspired me to keep it going.
