Ed Mell Poses

February 3, 2011

When I was in Corsicana, Texas last weekend I talked with Seth Hopkins of the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, GA and he said they are having a big Ed Mell art opening in March and asked if I would like to include my painting, "When Tracings Tell Tales That Paintings Make Secret."

The model for this parody of Cowboy Art is, ahem, Mr. Mell himself, who posed for this (full disclosure: I photographed him and projected it). Irony? Yes.

"Art is whatever you can get away with."
