Idle @ 709 Penn Gallery closes Sunday

Colin Noonan's solo show, Idle, closes on Sunday at 709 Penn Gallery.

Many of the subjects of Colin's portraits attended the opening party. It was fun matching them to their images. It actually felt a little like movie-star spotting, seeing the individuals Colin had cast in his paintings in real life...

Steve and Eva by Colin Noonan, oil on wood panel
(Steve also was the d.j. for the night, playing some really good vinyl.)

Ryan by Colin Noonan, oil on wood panel
(Ryan brought some amazing wings for the opening from the New Amsterdam.)

Evie and Amie by Colin Noonan, oil on wood panel
(Evie and Amie, beautiful twin sisters, work with Colin, the artist, at Coca Cafe - my favorite breakfast place in the Burgh. Here they are in front of their portrait with the artist himself!)

Colin is a seriously talented painter. If you haven't checked the show out yet, go before it closes on Sunday!
