Really looking forward to seeing all the imitations and trying to figure out who's who!  It was a refreshing break to paint in someone else's style.  I was finishing up some Artomatic commissions and this was perfect timing to sort of reboot and relax and have some fun with this.  Unfortunately, my wife won't allow the self-portrait I did in the house because it creeps her out so it's a good thing it's in the show for the month. :smt107

@hagenillustration Thatís awesome, if youíve effectively creeped out your wife, youíre doing a great job!  Iím glad to hear itís been a positive experience for you and Lisa.  I canít wait to see the other reactions to the show.  I actually canít wait to see the show myself.  Roger had a few finishing touches to the exhibit so Iíve only seen half.

Fun show and great artwork!  Excellent food and drink! What more can you ask for?
Everyone had a great time seeing the imitations and the imitators, originals and originators.

Exactly!  I really enjoyed Roger's un-veiling of the actual artists, and the audience's reaction!
