A Fresh Coat

Sonny came to us as a customer, about a year ago, wanting some framing for his upcoming show.
We began working together and discovered that besides being an all around good guy, his day job is as a house painter. He works with clients all over Los Angeles, interior and exterior, mostly residential.
After 10 years our alcove was in need of some repairs and a new coat of paint.
He had a solo show in Alhambra last October.  After taking down the work he brought two pieces straight to our Slow Down window.   He is currently working on a website so he can sell his work online.


Rey Bustos is best know for his mastery of anatomy and his enthusiastic teaching/lectures skills.
He is a graduate of Art Center College of Design (1989) where he currently teaches 3D Anatomy, Imaginatomy (a class he created) , and Figure Drawing. He also teaches a weekly adult class at and online through
Taking a break from figure drawing he created this series of paintings called "Plane Air"
