The Sultry Muse - June 2012 The Sultry Muse - June 2012

The June 2012 show at the Wine Bar and Bistro on Lark is called, “The Sultry Muse,” and is dedicated to one major emotional and painting influence in Ford McLain’s life.  “The Sultry Muse” continues to play on the concepts of liberation and redemption as well as glorify the link between creative passion and erotic passion.   The primitive painter is eternally grateful and devoted to his sultry muse.
