Dilly Dally

Got to see Toronto alt/punks Dilly Dally on tour in DC last fall.  DC9 was the perfect venue for it.  My favorite show of 2015.  Got a little creep drawing and photogging in as well.  These three paintings just sort of happened all at once.  Trying to capture the energy of this manic crew was a real challenge.  Did a little bit of experimenting with mixed media and collage paint peels.  Fun.  The band is heading back out on tour, but the fates are not in my favor this time around, I'm going to miss their show at U Street Music Hall. at the end of April.  If you like the paintings- go check the band out.  They kill it.
This one feels just right to me

This is on a very small canvas and I really struggled to get it done

Just hung these up at Olive Lounge in Takoma Park, MD, along with six other paintings from the "Meet The Band" series.
