The summer of love was a cultural happening that took place in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco in 1967. Over 100,000 young people descended upon the city to listen to music, take drugs, protest the war and experience a hippie lifestyle. This was truly a cultural phenomenon.
When I first moved to Florida in 2016, it was to the Villages, which is about an hour north of Orlando. There were about 100,000, 55+ people living there at the time. I was closing in on retirement myself at that point. I love to golf, but also started exploring other activities that would be fun.
Before creating this painting titled Analogue, I had been listening to a lot of records on my turntable. Yes, I still have my share of older vinyl records and when I am alone in the house working, I tend to play them vs. listening to music with my ear buds.
It felt like I was going fast, as I hit the back stretch at Talladega Superspeedway. I felt like the infamous Ricky Bobby as I sling shotted past the car in front of me to take the lead. As it turns out, I WAS doing 180 MPH when I made my move. It was the fastest speed that I had ever gone in my lifetime. I had raced at other fast tracks before including Daytona and Indianapolis, but I had not been able to achieve that type of speed before.
Renaissance Fair is one of my earlier pieces since re-devoting myself to painting. It was completed in late 2020. I recently mounted it in a custom floating black frame which brings the painting to life.
For a few years (2005-2008), I worked as a concert promoter in New England. While it was difficult to compete against Clear Channel, because they basically owned the market, my partner and I were able to book artists in lesser known venues in Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire.
This pair of paintings has a special place in my heart. I got the name for the paintings from a song that my daughter Jillian wrote when she was 14 years old. Jillian is a talented actress and musician.
Some days when I paint, it seems effortless. I am in the right mood, listening to the right music, and am inspired in some unique way. The next thing you know, something starts to appear on the canvas that motivates me to keep painting.
Other days, it is like pulling teeth to get something on the canvas that I am pleased with.
Well, I did it! I completed 31 days of not drinking alcohol. I guess it is kind of sad to be excited about completing a task like this, especially for those who have given up alcohol altogether, but after just coming off 30 days on a cruise ship with the drink package, it feels like quite the accomplishment.
Whether your New Year's resolution included adding a little more art into your daily life or you're looking for a unique gift or house accent, I've got some exciting news for you! I will now be offering merchandise on my website! Yes, I said merchandise. Pretty cool!
I am pleased to let you know that I am now offering limited edition acrylic prints of 7 of my favorite sold pieces. Each print will be signed and numbered on the back and will be limited to 50 copies each.
I am not going to be featuring a painting this month or for several months for that matter. Instead, I wanted to let you know that my wife Mary and I will be returning to international travel starting on 10/31.
This month’s featured painting is I’ve Seen that Movie Too. The title comes from an old Elton John song. It was on the “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” album and remains one of my favorite EJ songs to this day.
This month’s featured painting is Intuition. I really love the colors in this piece and the custom frame that surrounds it. The colors in this painting will add pop to any wall and are sure to engage the viewer.
Have you ever wondered if there is life on other planets? I have always been fascinated by outer space. As a kid “Lost in Space” was one of my favorite TV shows. The early episodes were in black and white, but as the seasons progressed, the broadcast changed to color and that is when my interest in space began to peak.
Before I started to work on this particular painting, I sat down and reflected a lot on the prior 2 years. At first, I conjured up all the negative emotions that I felt, which really wasn’t hard for me to do.
I've received many emails and questions from people visiting the galleries I'm represented in asking me what my motivation was when I created certain paintings. Consequently, I thought it would be fun to feature one painting per month and share the story/motivation behind my creating the piece.
