Cincinnati Art Galleries- Then and Now

I was recently selected to be in a still life show at Cincinnati Art Galleries. It's a very prestigious gallery that generally exhibits the work of  Cincinnati's historic masters, along with the occasional contemporary painters work.
As you can imagine it was an honor just to be selected, but then my work was chosen to represent the shows 'new work' on the postcard.
Technically the Then and Now means Dead Guys and Dying Guys. As I have mentioned in the past I relate more to the dead guys, so that is very exciting for me. I just respect the dead painters so much more and hope to be just like them in 50 or 60 years.
The other painting shown on the card is by William Mason Brown and was painted in 1883. I am pretty sure he is no longer with us.
I will have roughly 5 paintings in the show. Hope you can make it down to see all the work.

i wish they'd chosen a stronger picture by a dead man for the post card. then again, it certainly makes you look better. in fact, some might conclude that you're the real dead man.
