Awhile back, fellow artist Buddy Nestor asked if I would like to have my portrait done for a series he’s showing at The Toothless Cat Gallery. I was thrilled to be asked, and now I can share the result with you. The series is “Every Girl Goes to Hell” and will be on display at The Toothless Cat Gallery in Philadelphia, PA starting April 3rd. Buddy has painted numerous female artists for the series, choosing them based on their own artwork. Some of those artists include Edith Lebeau, Peggy Wauters, and Katie Perdue.

In Buddy’s own words, “All of the models I use for these portraits are very beautiful. However, when I paint them, they are very ugly.” But are they ugly? I find them quite intriguing, myself. You be the judge- the opening reception will be April 3rd from 6-10pm and the exhibit will be up through April 28th. For more of Buddy’s work, visit his website at
