I can’t paint to save my life. That is why I write. Let me provide an example. If someone were to say to me, “Hey, Mr. Rick. Draw a nice, Sweet‘n Low picture of you and your girlyfriend doing something fun and splashy!” then this would be, more or less, the final product. More or less.
Obviously I would do a much better job describing this scene through the written word: “There is a man. He is clean, musculoskeletal, and handsome. There is also a girl. She is testing for electricity in heaven. But, the sun is out. So, they are happily.”
Fortunately, there are better painters (and writers?) in the world than yours truly. One of those gifted young artists is Lukas Mouka, who will be in attendance at Hamilton’s Earls Court Gallery on November 10, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. for the opening reception of a new exhibit, Epic Stories and Tails: Exploring a Journey’s Encounters, which will run until January 7, 2017.
Also in attendance will be Richard Ahnert, Edward Falkenberg, Allen Egan, Chandler Swain, and Mary Philpott.
If you happen to be in or around Steeltown at the time, make sure you drop by and see some of the fantastic works on display.
