The first room has six paintings illustrating the passionate moment when lips connect and the kiss is made. The intoxicating images are created with a mixture of urban and fine art which is a signature of my style. There will be a make out corner/photo booth and of course pabst blue ribbon.
The second room is based on a dream I had.
I am standing on a small T shaped wooden pier that is connected to the rocky jetty of big corona beach, extending out on the harbor side. The light is so bright it blinds me at fist giving me a moment to breath in the fresh salt air. My arms cross and I let them rest on the railing to hold my weight. I open my eyes and see the water is rushing out to sea in an low tide revealing a clear picture of sea weed and marine life. I let my eyes follow the water out to the horizon, where they spy a black spot moving against the current. It swims into the harbor revealing a sperm whale. It travels along the far jetty and loops around to the other end of the pier I am on. It crushes through the boards and slams right into me. I fly into the air, but land on the few boards left wobbling feebly in front of the whale. It takes me a second to realize my whole body aches. Then it hits me again. As I fly back into the air I hear two words boom in my head "STOP SMOKING" I halt in mid air about 10 feet from the massive beast and begin to sob out apologetic remarks and promises. The whale bursts into a million pieces, the pier reforms and I land gently on it. I am still in pain. The pieces come together revealing a man in a white suit with the an amazing mustache. He looked impeccable and it was not just any mustache, but a flaming red mustache. His mustache was fantastic. He smiled at me and I felt a little warmth. A moment passed of understanding between us. Then he snapped his fingers and a beautiful blond angle of a woman appeared. I went to her and she comforted me. The comfort turned into confidence and I went for a kiss. Then I awoke.
