I just finished my painting for the ArtErotica 2012 show! ArtErotica raises money for the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund managed by Aids Services of Austin to provide emergency assistance to those living with HIV/AIDS and every penny spent goes directly into this fund.
I chose to do a tasteful portrait of the one and only “Queen of Pinups,” Betty Page. I recently began painting on wood rather than canvas, and am very happy with the results. I love the way the wood grain adds a subtle texture to the overall painting. This painting is quite large – 3′X4′ and will be up for auction at the show on April 7th. If you want a statement piece, this is the one for you!

A little about Art Erotica…
“For over 20 years ArtErotica has been one of the most unique and scintillating art events in Austin. From lust to love, ArtErotica has it all; painted art, sculpture, fabrication, kitsch. It has been dubbed “Austin’s Sexiest Art Show,” by the Austin Chronicle. Come find something to tickle your fancy, including erotic desserts and specialty drinks.
Over the years, ArtErotica has grown into quite an experience and quite the fundraiser. The event offers something of interest for everyone; the curious, the clubber, the exhibitionist and the voyeur. Even the art critic who raised a furtive brow walked away with a treasure.”
