8 Bit Duck

This painting...

...Was completed on Super Bowl Sunday morning at 6 AM.  It basically uses a very similar background (the same basic paint scheme) as the painting completed before this, "HOPE."    I am actually considering painting a huge version of the same/similar duck on a 48" x 36" canvas.  I'm also considering putting this very image on a T-shirt (In fact, I already have one order request :-)


This is acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20" and is currently for sale.

Heart of Gold

image29

This was a commissioned piece based off my earlier painting, "Equals."  which had a black background with red heart and yellow equals sign.


At this point after trying to contact the party who commissioned this, I have heard no response the us… It is currently for sale.


The size is 16" x 20."   Please feel free to contact the artist for more info.

Improvised Jets

This was my third piece ever painted in front of a "live audience" at the Deep Ellum Art Company" in the Deep Ellum  area of downtown Dallas Texas.  The date was August 2, 2018.


There was a dude named Benny who was drinkin' and discussing philosophy and politics and it came to me that being that his name was Benny, I should create a painting about Jets (harking back to the old Elton John song, "Benny and the Jets,") and thus the painting was born...


This piece is  18" x 24" and is currently for sale. Feel free to contact the artist for more information.

"8 Carrots & 7 UFOs"

 

This is a relatively new piece (July 2018) and was inspired by vegetables and spaceships I suppose :-)   


Originally, it was going to feature the gold "sea" below with 2 rows of 9 carrots above the gold and simply be called "18 Carrots"  and once the canvas was getting filled up, I decided to reduce it by 10 carrots and on a whim, decided to add 7 UFOs!


At this point this is one of my favorite works yet (at least personally).


Feel free to inquire, as regards price.

Paint by Wine

This is a relatively new piece (circa March 2018) that was inspired by a friend of mine whose wife likes wine and flowers ... as well as champagne (as evidenced by the champagne flute).

“Pizzazz”

  

This was an exploration into vibrant colors ...and MORE vibrant colors! :-)


 The original idea for this particular painting was actually totally different – it was going to have a COMPLETELY BLACK background (with something painted on top of that) and I started squiggling the black paint you see here ... and this squiggly "design" prompted me to completely change direction (and thus, this painting).


This work is 16” X 20” and is currently for sale. Feel free to contact the artist for pricing.

"Equals"

I needed to come up with a few love themed paintings for the Valentine's Day inspired, "Matters of the Art" show in North Dallas.  The original idea for this was going to be what you see here with the word answer on the bottom ("Love is the Answer") and then it was getting late, I was gettin' tired and realized that if I didn't make it so obvious, the painting would potentially be better.  Thus, the simple yellow =.


This is acrylic on canvas, is 24" x 18" and has been SOLD.

“The Lincoln Bedroom”

  

This was one of my very first paintings and helped set the stage for what ended up being my colorful childlike style of painting.


The title is not totally non-sequitur, as I think I felt that some of the rectangular faces reminded me of President Lincoln’s Iconic top hat.


This work is 18” x 24” and is currently for sale. Feel free to contact the artist for pricing.

"Unconditional"

This painting went through a couple different "evolutions" and ended up being an homage to love (as well as parents and their children :-)

"Zhivago"

This is my 1st painting completed in 2018.  Title of the painting is pretty much non-sequitur but it just felt right.


As it turns out, according to Wikipedia, the plot of Dr. Zhivago, the famous novel, is VERY complex, convoluted and many faceted so… my painting and it's title sort of ended up making sense :-)


This is acrylic on canvas - 24" X 18" and has been SOLD.

"Flower Child"

  

The title (and some of the flowers) were inspired by similar (round edged) daisies or what have you which were hand painted onto my mother's circa 1964 red Volkswagen Beetle when we lived in West Hollywood, California in the groovy mid-late '1960s.


This piece is 24"x 18"  Please ask for pricing.

"Change Myself"

  

This was an entry into a contest to have one's artwork included in a music video for the song, "I Don't Know my Name" by Grace Vanderwaal (winner of 2016's America's Got Talent competition) Grace is at this writing an emerging, successful musical artist who, also at this writing, is touring as the opening act for Imagine Dragons. 


Although this painting was  unfortunately not chosen to be in the music video, It could be an inspirational work to have on your wall.

"TV"

What television might look like… to an artist who doesn't watch much TV :-)

Leftovers

The  title basically says it all! This is a painting that basically took shape over the course of over a year; whenever I was done with a painting session, any paint left over on the pallet… Well you get the idea :-)


This piece is Acrylic on canvas, is 18" x 24" and has been SOLD.
