It's been nearly ten years since I put together my last book, and it felt like time for an another one. So, here's a new selection of paintings created since 2014 titled, "things, paintings of stuff". I'm including a link to the Blurb site where you can view the entire book because, to be honest, it's too expensive to buy. The cost from Blurb just to print it is ridiculous, even without any profit added on. I basically do this just so I can have something tangible to hold in my hands that represents what I love to do. Is that wrong? If you'd like to have a look here is a link to preview page.

|B-25 NAA | 24 x 24 | Oil on panel
A while back I attended an air show at the Naval Air Station near where I live and took tons of photos of this B-25. I love bare metal aircraft and this particular plane was the mother load. I've been feeding off that stash of images for years now and I think this one probably shows off that bare metalyness the best. I spent an inordinate amount of time on it, but it was one of those labors of love.

|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 | 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.
