Live Painting Exhibition w/ Artist Expressionist Wade A. Harrison at B BOP RECORDS

 

Wade developed  his painting from a photo of Sun Ra taken in Ann Arbor, Michigan…It was first sketched out and then painted with acrylics.

A Student from The Toledo School for the Arts asked Wade….”How do you know when you are finished?”   Wade said, “YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN TO WALK AWAY.”
