Reception Friday May 6th - 6-9pm
Inkwell Tattoo Studios and Gallery

Big Al will be there and drawing!

My figure "Inked" received an Honorable Mention last week.

The Livermore Art Association's 3rd Annual Figurative Art Exhibition - The Essential Nude: Figurative Fine Art was held last weekend. One of my pieces received an Honorable Mention.

I wasn't quite sure what to title the piece.
Since I really liked the command and control of the media (Pen & Ink) it was drawn in I titled it "Inked".

All the drawings on this blog are © big al art their respective years. Most are for sale. Contact the artist if interested.
