Aermacchi Chimera

Aermacchi Chimera  |  16 x 16  |  Oil on panel

A few years ago I drove out to the annual vintage motorcycle event at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham Alabama. I don't ride a motorcycle, I just think they're beautiful. The park includes a really nice museum dedicated to auto racing and motorcycles. When I came across this Aermacchi Chimera I knew one day I'd have it . . . on my easel. It just came off my easel yesterday and will soon be traveling to Rehs Contemporary in NYC. Time to tone a new panel.

White Mixer No. 2

White Mixer No. 2  |  16 x 16  |  Oil on Panel


I did a really big cropped version of this mixer a long while back, but always wanted to do it again with all of its parts. The photo I used as source material came out a little different than the mixer itself. In actuality the entire body and stand are white, but in the photo the body of the mixer came out with this yellowish tint. I really liked the way that looked so I kept it in.

One Way

One Way  |  18 x 24  |  Oil on panel

I think whenever I look at this painting in the future I will remember it as, "the one I worked on during my recuperation from heart surgery". I'm currently dealing with a newly discovered wrinkle involving my health, but the memory of this ordeal will have to be linked to the new painting I'm working on. 

This is from a photograph I took on Nantucket while Karen and I were in Massachusetts for the reception of a show I was having on Cape Cod. I just couldn't get the image of that white hat out of my mind. I also loved how the arrow in the road faced in the opposite direction of the pedestrians on the sidewalk. Plus, I hadn't painted people in a very long time and wanted to try it once again. I don't know if this piece will have much, if any, appeal to the public, but in all honesty I was doing it for myself. 

That day on Nantucket had been a really, really good day.

Happy New Year 2023!

Don't have much to show for 2022 artwise. It was an interesting year with an unexpected last quarter. I'll label it an unexpected cardiovascular interruption. Not a heart attack, but resulting in the same treatment. Still getting over that, but I'm on the mend, and slowly getting back into painting mode. Looking forward to a more productive and hopefully less traumatic 2023.
