Opening May 11th, artist Derek Nobbs will be displaying his most recent series of paintings at the Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington. The exhibition, titled Dead Man’s Tales, features a collection of watercolor and gouache paintings on hot-press heavyweight paper. Following a western, war, and water theme, the works each contain a skeletal portrait on paper that was self-aged using a mixture of coffee, tea, whiskey, and tobacco among other ingredients. According to Nobbs, inspiration for his art comes from nature, history, music, folklore, and various vintage items.
