The amazing artist Elizabeth McGrath, best known for her creepy-cute faux taxidermy mutants, has a show of watercolor paintings opening tomorrow night, May 10, in Los Angeles. Liz has created more than 50 paintings for this exhibition, titled The Secret Party. It runs until June 4 at the Bill Shire Fine Arts gallery, and all of the work is also viewable online. I'd imagine that this is Liz's last show for a little while as her awesome goth-country band, Miss Derringer, is about to go on tour with Blondie! Above left, "Sailor's Delight" (watercolor on paper, 3" x 2 1/2"). Above right, "Blue Star" (watercolor on paper, 3" x 2 1/2").
