Hi everyone, it's MP, I would like to invite anyone and everyone to
a group art show called "Haunted Hot Rods & Mystery Machines".
I've asked several artists including TC's Squid, Tobunga, BigToe,
Little Lost Tiki, Notch and maybe more to dream up a super-custom,
whacked-out vehicle to create our very own "artists' car show".
The show was spearheaded by the super-talented Joe Leonard's "Gorilla Ford"
as seen on our poster and every new custom I see coming in looks amazing!

Join us on June 26th @ Daredevils and Queens in Santa Rosa, CA for a night
of killer fantasy hot rod art, raffles, kick-ass tunes and funfunfun! As
salon/gallery owner Travis Kennedy does not take a cut in sales, we will be
donating 25% of any sold painting to the "Living Room" here in Santa Rosa.
The Living Room is the only daytime drop-in center in Sonoma County that
specifically serves homeless and at-risk women and their children. All of
the artists and I have agreed that this party will be a great way to have
a rockin' time and try to help out a little bit. For more info on the
Living Room check'm out here:
http://www.thelivingroomsc.org/

This party is going to rock, I hope you can join us!

Well, I finally finished my somewhat pedestrian piece for this show, a rather literal interpretation of the show title...


Really stellar work from some awesome TC artists posted here!

Should be a great show!

Thanks MP. I can’t paint so I made a ceramic entry. I took a very different approach that the other artists, a more literal interpretation of an automobile “ghost” being a rusted out car – inspired by Arlo Guthrie’s “…and the graveyards of the rusted automobiles”. I guess that’s my prerogative as an artist. I just hope I don’t stink up MP’s show (pun intended )

A 6 piece “mosaic (10x16 inches) based on a 1931 Chevy 3 window coupe - this rusted “ghost” is all that remains of a once glorious hotrod. It shows the ravages of time; sagging hinges, missing door handle, dents, corroded drip rail, separating fender, etc. This ghost haunts car shows looking for it’s front half, hoping that part of it still lives on as an award winning hotrod.

Just finished sawing my painting out. Talk about waiting until the last minute. Can't find the cord to download a pic sorry.
Hope this show does well for MP. Seriously great effort being put forward here.
