THE WAITING ROOM

THE WAITING ROOM

Felicitations and greetings from this cavern of canvases, dedicated and devoted to bringing you art lovers a few in-depth probes through the crust of the not quite real, the almost real, and the frankly and flagrantly unreal—pictures, paintings, portraits, rendered onto canvas with brush . . . and sometimes claw.
Item number one: in a twelve dollar and fifty cent pine box reposes the body of a Frontier Frankie, armed but disarming, a victim of an Old West philosophy that any man with a good eye, a limber finger, and a well-honed trigger skirts the pastures of immortality. But this chap found out the hard way that immortality is a wish, a word, but infrequently a reality. He awaits your pleasure in a painting we call “The Waiting Room.”
