Here I am, standing tall, next to my sister painting, 'Mountain Meadows'. I'm on the left.
Here's a slightly closer look at myself, alongside my sister painting, 'Mountain Meadows'. I'm on the left.
Here I am, with different lighting, standing next to my other sibling, 'Centuries Sentries', I'm on the right.
Look at us, my two siblings flanking me, myself being in the middle. Look at the door behind us, we tower over it!
Here we are again, myself and my siblings, this time, I take center stage.

About The Artwork

This painting, which was completed on December 25th in 1982, Christmas. The painting is part of a three piece series. It is 4 feet wide by 8 feet tall and I did it on Masonite, which makes it all the more colorful and brilliant. This name for this painting is "Horsehead Mesa". Another painted which was directly inspired by the 35+ years of camping in the wilderness I did throughout my life. Those experiences forged what I painted, how I painted, and sometimes why I painted. If I had to think back, this looks a little like Utah and even a bit like Arizona. It has two sister paintings, one being "Mountain Meadows" and the other being "Centuries Sentries". All over sized pieces of art, all done in stunning color and ultimately fine detail. For, I paint really lightly, putting down only as much paint as is needed to get my idea painted on something. The three paintings of this series were commissions, meant to be installed at the end of well lit hallways in a large home. Allowing for a quick escape from the confines of the walls and into the great outdoors. These three beauties are definitely breathtaking. The commissioner sold the house he had commissioned this for, in turn allowing me to keep the deposit as well as the paintings. Upon purchase, a new simple frame will be expertly constructed to fit the painting, before being placed in its padded shipping crate, given a final goodbye, and finally sent off to its new home. I'm asking $100k, gallery commission in tow. Buy all three over sized pieces of art and I'll knock off 10%!!!

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
