Frank Zappa's inscription to me on a photo of an unfinished painting of mine. A psychedelic pool in the center (not in this photo) was finished when I showed Zappa the real painting at his home. But I only had an old photo for him to sign.

Glow Of The Spirit - oil on canvas, 46.5 x 63.5 inches. Many people have mistaken the figures in the painting for ghosts. They're not. They're real live humans. @juxtapozmag @hifructosemag #artfreaksfav @beautifulbizarremagazine @ilovesurrealart @incredibleart1067
