100 paintings in 100 days...10 years later...

Good news, I am having my first big solo show In Los Angeles early next year at GALLERY 1988!
For those of you who have been fans long enough, you might remember my first art show.  Those who are newer to my work, next year it will be the 10 year anniversary from when I had my very first art show and I completed 100 paintings in 100 days. For my 10 year anniversary show, I'll be doing it again!
In the last 10 years I have come a long way.  My paintings from my first show almost look like they were painted by a completely different artist.  The first time I did 100 paintings in 100 days, I had the complication of also having a full time job.  Although I will be able to focus only on the painting this time, my work has also gotten a lot more detailed, precise and takes much longer.  So I suspect I will still be working my ass off to create this series.
I will be starting day one on September 1st. I will be posting progress, as well as some sneak peeks of pieces along the way.  I know that working 100 days straight will be hard and I will most likely be a complete mess afterwards, but sometimes art is pain!
Some of the things to expect to see in these 100 days: Pretty girls, circus freaks, four eyed kings, ghost forest girls, a tribute to the lovely and gory art of Anathema Photography, some pieces inspired by Alli Wynn Photography, and some of my favourite alternative models.  I'm excited, nervous and can't wait to show you what I have come up with.

This is what 100 wood panels looks like!  I can't wait to paint on these Trekell G.H.Simkins panels.
