Music of the Future - guitar shop

"Music of the Future"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"

For all of my viewers that are a bit more grounded in
reality, I've gone to the streets today to bring you
an image of a long standing icon near our city's campus.....
"not the young guy".....:) but "The String Shoppe".
It seems like it was there forever years but has bit the
dust now....This young guy has to travel a lot further
to find some strings to create the music of the future!

I was asked to do a version of a past sold painting of our
Art Museum's Sculpture Garden with her son in the scene.
I am saddened to recently learn that the museum is eliminating
the sculpture garden to make room for expansion.

Puffaloon Lake

"Puffaloon Lake"
oil on canvas - 8"x10" - sold
Dreamscape Series

I thought I would start this week with a trip to
Puffaloon Lake for a little summer fun.
Since the sixities, I have created flat collage work that I have
called "Dreamscapes". I always thought they were studies
for future paintings and I used them to practice color, design and
to keep my brain open for new concepts.
All these years have gone by and I never did them into paintings but
lately, I have been thinking about them and had this little vision
of Puffaloon Lake pop into my head....

Hope you enjoy it!

Since the warmer Spring air is bringing the neighborhoods to life with more
people walking their little four-legged friends, I decided to do some of their
portraits this week.
A woman that lives on my street walks her little friend almost every day.
