This past weekend I took my family on a trip to South Dakota to visit Mount Rushmore and a few other sites. We stayed in Custer and I remembered hearing about the Bedrock City that was there when I was a kid.
I wanted to share my latest piece with you called "Nani ele' ele anu" (a.k.a. Pretty Black Cat) It's a 33x83" acrylic painting on stained Birch wood, float mounted in a 2" deep black wooden frame, and is available in the gallery now.
Just finished “Mister Peepers” an original acrylic painting on Birchwood. This one has some sentimental value for me. My senior year of high school I lived with my best friend Chris Weber and his AMAZING family in Colorado Springs. Growing up my family had 2 Siamese cats, but the Weber’s had lots of pets!
As I said in my last blog, I’ve had a hankering lately for doing some Colorado specific pieces. I finished off the holiday with 'Atomic Ski Bunny' and I love how it turned out. Before Thanksgiving I created a piece based on the iconic “Colorado Spaceship House”. Anyone who's ever driven up to the mountains on I-70 from Denver knows exactly where this house is. The Sculptured House, also known as the Sleeper House, is a distinctive elliptical curved house, built on Genesee Mountain in 1963 by architect Charles Deaton. It has been featured in many movies and television shows, but most notably in the 1973 Woody Allen sci-fi comedy movie “Sleeper”. It's always been a personal fav of mine!
I’ve had a hankering lately for doing some Colorado specific pieces. Living in Colorado Springs, and having grown up here for a large portion of my life, I’ve been totally inspired by the mountains, skiing, lodges and chalets, and the mountain lifestyle in general. So, I’ve begun working on a collection of pieces with those elements in mind, and of course with a retro, mid century twist.
This was my very first robot painting from eight years ago. Hard to believe it’s been that long. When I first started painting robots, for me, it was all about the size. I just wanted to see big robots on big canvas. I will always try to make them as wide and as tall as I can, but because of the materials I use I’m slightly limited. This robot is called “Lunch in The Big City” and is 2 ½ ft X 8 ft on MDF Panel Board. I use the MDF because of its completely smooth surface and it helps give me the look I want for the robots.
I have always loved robots! I remember when I was a little kid in the second grade, and we were moving from Colorado to Oklahoma and my parents told each of us kids that we could only take one toy with us on the car trip there. I chose to take my black Rotate-O-Matic Super Astronaut Robot. The whole torso spun around and it’s chest opened up with machine guns inside and they would light up and make cool shooting sounds. It was seriously the coolest toy ever! Man, I wish I still had it today. I guess that’s where my love of robots began and I still collect them today.
