This breathtaking piece was completed by Greg in September 2013. Stunning and dark, this puppet is a favorite of Greg's. For years he tried to find the time to start a series of paintings that are of his collectibles, and now he has!

"Said the Spider to the Fly" was the first place winner in the category of still life for the 2014/2015 Art Renewal Center's Annual Salon Competition. Greg was honored to have this piece on display in the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain, and the Salmagundi Club in New York City. This painting was the first among Greg's puppets in his "Kid Stuff" series, and it represents a great affection for the many toys he has collected throughout his lifetime, no matter how aged and unloved they were. Every crack adds character, every scratch has a story, and every toy is cherished by Greg. 

This is the second piece in Greg’s "Kid Stuff" series.

FRAMED - Painted in acrylic on canvas, "Said the Spider to the Fly" is in a gorgeous silver accented black frame that measures 51" wide and 53.5" tall.
