Thank you for everyone who came out to the opening reception on friday night. Special thanks to those who supported the fundraiser and bought a print or an original. Great seeing familiar faces again as well as meeting new ones. Thanks for the great comments about my piece and especially to those who bought a print. The 10 limited edition giclee prints are almost gone. Email me (info [at] peterchanart.com) if you still want one. Work is still up at the gallery as well as the online gallery right now.
Here are some photos from the show.

The giclees came in today.
For the 'Birds and the Bees' show, i have made limited edition Giclees for the 'Beenoculars' drawing i posted earlier. These prints will be available at the show for a very affordable price. They are high quality archival print on 90 lbs Arches Watercolor paper. 11'' x 14'' each.
This edition is the first limited edition print run from me. Limited to only 10 copies. Signed and numbered.
They will be available at the show Friday night and possibly online.

Medium: Pencil and Gesso on Stonehenge Paper
"And that's why birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love"
Concept and idea: Inspired and based on the birds and the bees original meaning, where children learn about sex and pregnancy. I decided to use the notion of the voyeur, using binoculars to show curiosity. The birds and the bees are pollinating the flowers to show life giving. What is he doing with a bee-nocular? The mystery about this piece is, you are not sure who or where he is looking at. Is it the birds and the bees, or is it you, the viewer? Or maybe he is looking at a very pretty girl his age, or not, what do you think?
This piece will be exhibited at the birds and the bees show at Jerome Jenner Gallery this friday (March 20) along with many other amazing illustrators/artists from the industry. All art work will be up for sale for a good cause to raise money for the graduating class of 4th year illustration students at Sheridan College. I am in the process of having some giclee prints made of this for the show. I will post more about that later as it gets near. Anyways, come by and mingle, have a drink, and enjoy art if you are in the area!
