The Fantastic Flying Fezmatics...


 Waiting in the Wings
watercolor, 12" x 12"
Chris Beck

Just finished and popped into a shipping box yesterday. Normally, I spend some time (OK -- a *lot*) looking at my finished paintings, so I feel a bit lost today. Hope these little buffoons find a congenial reception!!

  4. How about when we get back? We are leaving September 11th to shoot 3 DVD's and signing a partnership contract with F&W media and ArtistNetworkTV! Did you know we moved? We have a new space in San Carlos. We love it and will have you over soon for Margaritas!

  5. I'd seen something that you were going to be working with F+W -- how very cool!! Did not know about your move and would love to see the new place when you're back.

  8. They're just wonderful Chris! I know what you mean about missing them. I did that the other day, started looking for a painting and then realized, Oh that one is gone. You'll just have to paint some more buffoons:)

  11. Thanks so much, Jeanette!! Can't tell you how pleased I am to get the feedback -- I painted this under such a time constraint that I didn't have adequate time to look at it with fresh eyes before I sent it off. It's so difficult to be objective about something when you're totally wrapped up in the painting process.

  13. I love, love, love this painting! The "communication" between the Fezmatics and the circus background tell such a fun story! Nice to see new paintings!

  14. Thanks, Terry and Kathleen!! I'm pleased when I can lighten the mood -- the world can weigh too heavily on us much of the time.
