SLIP IT TO ME

8" X 8"
Oil
Walker Art Center Minneapolis
Slip It To Me - 1964 Richard Hamilton
Richard Hamilton coined the phrase Pop Art. You might be under the impression that Pop
was an American creation but it was a Brit - Richard Hamilton that worked 
in Pop, lived Pop Art and coined the phrase Pop Art.
If you click on his name above to read his story. 
Oil, acrylic on plywood. 
 
Here's an update on my progress. In December I will presenting
a show "The Classics" at White Hart Gallery in Steamboat Springs.
I've been busy gathering ideas and images. It's going to be cars, trucks, cokes and cruisers.
I thought about just cars but the idea morphed into something else. Time will tell. 
Thanks for waiting MB.

ASPEN PART II

16" X 8"
Oil
Aspen Alley
Aspen alley is the road past my house. It's a dense row of aspen trees and conifer
trees. In the fall the shadows are spectacular at sunset because of the angle of the sun.
I've had this image in my collection for years never had the guts to give it a go. 
I figured there was no time like the present to get over my fears.
Thanks MB

HOW'S YOUR AS-BEN?

6" X 12"
Oil
Hot springs road - my yard
I've been experimenting with aspen tree paintings - it's really hard for me.
I painted 3 as a triptych I think they look good together.
Hope to get a good photo soon of all 3.
Here's what it looks like outside my window. It's been unseasonably 
cold and dark. I'm really not ready for snow. 
New ideas coming soon when they're ready.
Thanks a bunch MB
My dog Georgi couldn't walk 3 weeks ago - he's 14. His recovery took a lot of extra time.
Acupuncture, laser, a great vet and my undivided attention - he's walking again.
He's a bit wobbly but we're ecstatic with his progress. His new harness
has a handle which is handy. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
