Liberty Takes a Holiday 2003

“Liberty Takes a Holiday” 2003. This was painting during the run up for the disastrous  Iraq war and exhibited in a show at the Warehouse Gallery called “Propaganda of War”  – the republicans lied their way into that war – and it all feels very familiar. #arlingtoncemetary #oilwars 

What’s Happening Now

With the holidays upon us, I’m working on a few things. I just posted one of my paintings for the Last Holiday Starkillers exhibit. This is the last one we’ll do as a nod to the final Star Wars film. I’ll be varnishing, framing, delivering and hanging this week. I’m also getting holiday orders out, thanks everyone for your patience. My biggest priority the last few weeks was finishing up work for the Starkillers exhibit. 

I’m also getting work ready to ship out to the Woody Shimko Gallery in Palm Springs. I’m very excited about this venture and will be sending 4 paintings out to start with. Three are new and not been exhibited.

  Other news…I’ve been listening to the Tim Ferris podcast – very inspiring. I’ve focus on art for most of my life and not business. He interviews successful artists, athletes, and business folks from all walks of life and I’m picking up some ideas on how to handle my website and reach out to everyone a bit more.  As always, big thanks to everyone for their ongoing support.

The Last Holiday Starkillers

Hey Star Wars and mid-century fans – “The Last Holiday Starkillers” art exhibit is coming up 12/14. Opening reception is 6 – 9. We’ll be at 609 H St NE, WDC.

I did two new paintings for this, the first one I’ll share is “Sad Eyed Jedi with a Xenomorph”. She’s a kitschy little take on the mid-century Keane painting, made famous in the movie Big Eyes. My parents had several prints and I grew up looking at them. I dismissed them initially but realize they had a big impact on my work.  I’ll post the second painting soon. I’ll also be showing a few older pieces, including “Sacred Heart of Yoda”.

She would be a great addition to any mid-century decor. Prints will be available soon. Sign up for my mailing list or follow me on social media for updates.
