I suggested a while back to have a Forgery exhibition at a local gallery. Well that time has crept upon us. I considered doing various other pieces including an Emin. In the end I settled on Alfons Mucha. There was a feeling at first of being a traitor not choosing a female artists. But love for this particular series transcends such issues for me. Moon and Stars is a wonderfully brilliant classic. It is delicate and passionate. Learning of its meaning and a little Mucha history was an added bonus. I've never spent too much time working on reproductions, but this walk in another's shoes was a joy.
In this picture, she was still in the works and wet on my easel. However, the finished and framed (and dried version) along with many other creative reproductions can be seen at William H. Millers Studios (https://www.facebook.com/whimdesigns) in Myrtle Beach, SC. The reception is this Friday, March 24, 2017, 6-8. Free and Open to the Public.
