The Friday Painting

"The Red Chairs"
6" x 8"
Oil on Panel
I am painting frantically, trying to get as much done as I can before I go back to work in 11 days.  This is my living room before I rearranged it.  I wanted to capture the glow of the lamp and the shine on the wood floors.  This one came together fairly quickly.  Now I want to do another interior.

The Spotlight is on Me!

Wow!!! I am so honored to be the Spotlight Artist of the Week at Daily Paintworks, an Internet art gallery with the artwork of over a thousand artists.  They have posted an interview with me and are giving away one of my paintings.  Follow this link to take a look:

This little car tried to run me down on the sidewalk in New York City.  He was a little guy who thought he was pretty tough (Napolean-esque). He decided he wanted to park on the sidewalk where I was standing and just zipped in there.  I snapped his picture, and now I have immortalized him in oil paint. He was pretty cute, so I guess I can't stay upset with him.

Okay, so I have moved away from vehicles with fins (temporarily), and have chosen something much smaller and less gas guzzling.  This spunky little orange thing was sitting in front of Republic Coffee in Memphis a few weeks ago.  (Best iced coffee in town! Love to see the cream slowly curli-que it's way through the coffee.)  This little darling was loaded with stickers.  I think one was a Betty Boop, but I decided to leave them off, because I wanted to make sure it looked like a Vespa.  If I were 20 this would be my ride.

Fins! I can't get over them.

This is a 1960 Cadillac.

"Fins Were In"
Oil on Canvas
(Gallery Wrap)

I have this obsession with fins.  I love the geometric shapes they create on the canvas- both positive and negative shapes.  I also love mixing all of the reds.  Elvis used to drive a cadillac like this, but I think it was pink.  Here in Memphis he used to give them away.  There are many stories about him being at a car dealership, shopping for a car.  While there, he would buy a car for someone who happened to be on the lot that day. He was very generous.  Wish he were here to buy this painting!
