The Last Known Picture Of Joseph Merrick

Here is my contribution to the David Lynch art show going on in Georgia at the Alcove Gallery next week. Pabst Blue Ribbon is one of the sponsors, which should be amusing to anyone who has seen Blue Velvet. The following quote was taken from the event page at The Alcove Gallery website.

The piece looks great. And I'm certain it'll look even better when I stop in at The Alcove later today (which just so happens to be just around the corner from my studio). I missed the opening last week, but planned on seeing the new exhibition this week anyway. Inspecting this piece up close is just another reason to stop in sooner than later.
