Twelve Polaroids from my 'Summer Love' collection will be on display and available for purchase at Breadbar in Los Angeles, CA, all summer long. The exhibition runs June 4 - September 30, 2011.

The show features twelve 8x10 lustre prints, printed with archival C-Type inks, then mounted on sustainably harvested, cabinet quality 1/2 inch solid wood. There is a keyhole slot on back of the panel for easy hanging.

My first collaboration with pop realism painter Robert Townsend is now complete! Robert transformed a macro self portrait I shot of sprinkles on my lips into a 36x36 oil painting for his show at Sue Greenwood Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. It will be on display, along with other pieces from his Americana collection, June 2 - 30, 2011. You can view the process of the painting, from start to finish here.
