I grew up listening to The Monkees. A lot of my sense of humor developed watching the show on Channel 11 in the evening after the Real Ghostbuster cartoons. Davy Jones passed this morning at 66. Needless to say The Monkees are on my playlist today. Thank you for the music.
The picture just does not do the original justice in any way. The original is 16x20 gallery wrap with a base of metallic paints that I have glazed oils over. This give the color a shimmer that can not be described or seen in this image or any print. Normally I say to people, if you cant afford a painting, I always offer prints. And while I do intend to eventually offer prints of this, at the moment I really want the original to go to someone who understands that they are getting something that no one else will ever experience. The color shift on the shell as the light changes over the course of a day is something not to be seen, but experienced.
"Tranquility" is currently available at Mindworks Gallery in Chesterfield, MO.

Not art related in the least, but I cant resist sharing this with you. This is my parents dachshund Marley. She is watching television and being tickled by my wife. Its moments like this that keep me inspired as an artist.
So I recently have been drowning in work. Good for Business, bad for blogging. However, I finally have enough of a cushion to get some new work posted and that's what I am now really taking the time to do.
First up is a company in Canada called "A Way With It Removal Services" It is a junk removal business to help remove unwanted items from the homes of the areas aging population. They asked for a friendly throwback to the era of cartoon pitchmen and smiling icons. The President of the company Bryan Reber is a great guy and now has a logo to match his personality. If you are in the Quebec area and need some stuff removed, look them up!
Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying this weather more than you can imagine, but I had a few snow paintings planned that I have put off now as its just impossible to paint snow when its a gorgeous 70 degrees outside.
In the meantime, I have been quietly making updates to the site that have yet to be published. Look for those to start rolling out over the next few days.I have some new work that I will be posting this weekend, and I have been doing some contract work for a local web design and ad firm that I will post links to as soon as it goes live.Not to mention my private commissions and design work. In short, I am EXHAUSTED. Very excited, but totally exhausted.
If January was my month to recuperate from 2011, then February will be the month that I kick it off with a bang. Come back tomorow for more!
Have a great night!
