The Peccadillo Pearl paintings were originally created for display in Peccadillo, a classy ‘speakeasy’ bar in Carrboro just on the border with Chapel Hill. Vividly colorful in daylight, the paintings were crafted to have presence in the very dim light of the establishment, and became an important part of Peccadillo’s unique ambiance. Fifteen paintings had been created and displayed at the establishment, six or seven at a time on a rotating basis, in the four years before Peccadillo permanently closed in April 2016. The artist continues to add additional paintings to the series, with samples on view at the Thomas Stevens Gallery and other venues, including a special permanent exhibit space at
Yonder, Southern Cocktails and Brew.
