This is a very belated wedding gift for Jeffrey and Holly, who run Topatoco. Way back at Calgary Expo Holly mentioned, “I kind of want to get Jeffrey a velvet painting of Barry from Storage Wars,” and I was like, “Dude, I’ll do it, that’s totally something I should have already made.” I even had my sometimes-assistant Lacy build and stretch a black velvet surface, but as it turns out, working on velvet is incredibly hard. So I made this delicate oil painting instead. Prints here.
