Revisited & Updated

I'll be posting new work intended for Stricoff in a few days, but in the mean time I thought I'd revisit some older pieces that have now found a new home. These paintings will all be included in the Wynne/Falconer show in September. The Nautilus above is one of my current favorites. It was one of those paintings that just flowed. No cursing or frustration of any kind. It would be nice if all my work evolved so painlessly. Pre-show purchase information can be found by clicking here.

Many of those who frequent this blog will remember the post where I lamented the lack of interest in this particular painting. As fortune would have it, Kenny Wynne agreed to accept it for the up-coming show along with "Chevrolet" (below). Well, one day after the current issue of American Art Collector hit the newsstands (see previous post) he received a call from a collector in Americas' southwest, and it sold. I don't know for a fact that it was seen in the magazine, but it would appear that this is the case. The power of advertising.

I'm presently working on four new paintings for New York, and as I said above they will be posted (hopefully) in the next few days. This being the case I thought it would be an opportune moment to bring some attention to the remaining pieces in the Wynne/Falconer show. Four of the nine paintings have already sold in pre-show purchases, which is pretty cool. Plus it's always nice to have a few red dots to start off a show. Anyone interested in a pre-show purchase of "Chevrolet" (above) can find gallery information by clicking here.

I'm nuts about cars and I absolutely love this painting you've done of the Chevy but I'm besotted with the other Red 1955 car painting too!...I cannot stop looking at them! Also, congrats to yourself and Karen on the American Art Collector Magazine Article.

Such good news. I hope this opens doors to more sales of these types of paintings for you. I also hope the other sells quickly as well. It's stunning with the sepia tones you've infused into it. I love that piece most of all.
