Tastee Freez!

Its that time of year when the weather finally warms up and its time for ice cream! I loved going to the local Tastee Freez or Dairy Queen as a kid. I still love to go. This painting is a study of a larger piece that I am thinking about painting.

Heinz Ketchup Painting - painting series #10

This painting will also be included at the Elliott Fouts Gallery. The exhibition date has been scheduled for mid November of 2008. I have painted many ketchup bottles in the past but this compostiion was my wifes idea. She insisted I paint it with a swipe of ketchup on it. I have a ton of work ahead me. I intend to paint some really large paintings for the show. I will be exhibiting with a Gallery artist Tim White.

If anyone is interested, please contact the Elliott Fouts Gallery (Phone: (916) 736-1429). Limited Edition prints are also available.

Sugar Smack - painting series #9

This painting is another painting that will be included at the Elliott Fouts Gallery.

When I found this cereal box I knew that I had to paint it. You don't find cereal boxes like this anymore. So unique! I can't tell you how fun and strange it was to paint this painting. That clown is to die for! The lettering and layers in this rather large piece was a challenge in patience.



I included a close up - click the image to view:
