Mike Flinn at the Basement Gallery

I did a rough sketch of Mike Flinn's "Conversation with an Extrovert" at the Basement Gallery on First Thursday and colored it in later. Flinn had a lot of fun pieces like this, and it was entertaining listening in on some of the conversations of people looking at them. One guy who was standing next to me said either to me or to no one in particular, "I'm never having dinner with Mike Flinn." My favorite overheard snippet was another man talking to his friend about a Flinn painting a few feet away from me: "I like the symbolism, whatever it is. Oscar Meyer Wienermobile ... and a horse on fire, expelling flaming gases."
