El Gallo!

I was gone for most of August, but before I left I was invited to be a part of a fun little Food cArt Show at Screaming Sky Gallery. It seemed like the right time to bring a little focus down to our neck of the woods here in Woodstock, so I chose El Gallo -who truly deserves the luv. I believe they were one of the first carts to move into our hood and they've hung on (and thrived) while others have pulled out. I chose to honor them in appreciation for that and for their damn good tacos!

I had fun painting this guy and all the bottle caps I used were 'Up-cycled' from
El Gallo patrons. 
The show is still up for another week and this pretty boy is still

If you're ever in Woodstock, be sure to check out El Gallo and tell them
Alea sent you!

Here I am at the Opening

Just one last thing . . .

Big Mama can sing it!


  1. If 2 posts show up sorry...I didn't know I had to log in first. Anyway, love your stuff, your talent, upcycling, fabulousness. We finished our home remodel (for now) and found a home for your homage to Patsy Cline in our guest bedroom. Looks awesome with the knotty pine paneling! Will post a pic soon :)

    1. Thanks Christie, I love that you love my art. And I am so honored that 'my' Patsy gets to live happily ever after with you! I can't wait to see her in her natural habitat (knotty pine couldn't be more perfect!).
