It's that time again for the
Visual AIDS
Postcards From the Edge show






Starting this Friday 29th January 2016 through to 31st, it's Visual AIDS's fantastic Postcards From The Edge show.

Visual AIDS uses all of the proceeds from the sale of small 4" X 6" postcard sized paintings to help prevent HIV from spreading and to help others who have already contracted and are suffering from this terrible disease.

I've been supporting Visual AIDS since 2012 and producing artwork for them since the 2012 Postcards from the Edge show.



"It's time for NYC's most popular art event of the year - Postcards from the Edge, All artwork is displayed anonymously, and the artist's name are only revealed after purchase. All postcard sized artworks are $85 each and sold first-come, first-served. With more than 1600 works going on display, you're guaranteed to find something you love - all while supporting the programs of Visual AIDS."



The 4" X 6" painting that I am exhibiting this year at PFTE is 

I'll Support You!.

This one's loosely based on quite a successful painting from a few months ago earlier on this year which is titled Them, These or Those, but this time I thought, what if she were drinking? - Hence the title 'Another One For The Road'.

I've created several paintings where a small little guy is
hanging or dangling from a pair of women's heels, so I
thought that I'd try something different this time and base
this one on being treated like a Yo-Yo.
