Fall Signature Show at the CAC

For those of you who are already confused, this is not a show featuring artist's signatures- though that may be interesting. The work will be signed, but I feel it is more about the visual image on the canvas than the awkward identification often found in the corner. So, what is Signature about this show?
A Signature member of the Cincinnati Art Club is a artist of such great character and fortitude that they have to pay a higher rate in club dues. You also have to go through a rigorous application process, judged by a group of robed elites in a dark room (Actually I made that last part up, I am not sure about the specifics of the judging- just know, if I am ever asked to judge future Signature Members, I will be wearing a heavy, dark maroon robe with the hood up.)

Did I mention that Signature Members have to pay more?
Anyway, I'm in a Signature Show at the Art Club, opening this Friday, October 10 (6:00 - 8:00 pm)
Open Gallery hours: October 11, 12, 18 & 19 (1:00 - 4:00 pm)

Stop by on Friday and have a look at the work while enjoying red wine in a plastic cup and sampling some cheese cubes. 
I have written a few posts about this very painting if you are interested.
A bit about the process of painting this work.
I had some repair work to do.

Compositional ramblings.
