First Thursday on the Third Thursday

Drew Gentle's resume is impressive, but his expressive and dynamic works of fine art and paintings are fantastic!

The bold color schemes and the intense expression of his portraits are magnetic.

I really couldn't stop looking at these. Love the juxtapose here, with the lightweight pastels and the delicate face - and then the hint of an inner monster up there in her head. I choose to assume she's in her 40's.

Drew Gentle was there, but when I went back to snap a photo I couldn't find him.

These works are simply breathtaking. The energy and intrigue pull you in.

They remind me of a mix of Rorschach blots, Willem de Kooning, and cubism.

I may have to go back to see if any of his smaller pieces are affordable.
