so a month or so back trevor and I and all my military painting drove to Calgary for the weekend where we met up with Matt Greer a stellar Photographer, where he documented my paintings. and for the past month with the little free time I have, I have been slowly putting them up on my store here is a link to Matt's blog and his tutorial on how to properly photograph art.matt greer here is a link to my store and the new productsmelissa ryans store here are some of the paintings he documented and the quality is awesome.
so I started doing these paintings of girls that are dead in classic nude poses. mostly backs with them growing/sprouting wings. or becoming angels. well they we the top seller at the festival. I contemplated not bring them out or making small prints of the paintings. but thought to test out the response. people ate them up. so I did my Geisha as a dead girl and here is a new one as well, dead girl in yellow. both of these i made while at the festival. I sold the yellow one and the blue one but i still have my geisha. I love her.

Hey everyone. it been a long time. I just finished up the Art Works Festival in Downtown Edmonton at Sir Winston Churchill Park. It was a 12 day festival from 11 am to 10 pm at night. Here are some pics of my display. this wall trevor and I built and we measure to fit it in the trunk of the car. The wall compacts into 6 leafs books and in the set up one is stacked on another and the they are all attached. making a 12 panel wall. It worked out well. I have attempted to upload my images on my blog severa times but something always happens.
