Sad Unicorn

This is the final painting I did for the Economy Shoe Shop Show. TODAY and TOMORROW are the LAST DAYS to see the work if you still haven't. The idea for this painting came from a converstion with another artist I admire when he jokingly stated unicorns were not fit to paint. The painting was floating around in my head for about two and a half months before I was able to paint it and it SOLD before I even hung it up on the wall! 'Sad Unicorn', acrylic on wood panel, 9"x12"

Join me the evening of SATURDAY MARCH 6th 2010 for the opening of my month long show at the Paragon Theatre! ( That evening, I'll be presenting my new work and later making a very special painting LIVE to the audience! Included in that show are a series of brand new never before seen paintings all related to an enviromental theme. See you there!

Halloween Sweethearts

This is one of the new Valentine's Day themed paintings I did for my Shoe Shop Show. It is of course based on one of the most influential animated films of all time: 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'.

If you haven't seen the show yet at the Economy Shoe Shop, this coming week is the last full week to see it. Also, I will be painting at the Paragon this Tuesday night for the 'Dead Celebrity Record Show' - see you there!

The Hug-A-Tron 5,000!

The name says it all! A robot specifically designed to relinquish your emotionally repressed needs! Isn't technology great? Buy one today and never be hugless again!

The robot is a homage to Robby the Robot from the movie 'Forbidden Planet'. I based the backlighting from the movie poster 'The Thing'. I've never seen the move, but one of my favorite movie posters ever made. I've gotten more comments on this painting then I ever would have anticipated…
