John Wayne Tribute$85.00 – $245.00
Idea behind the Painting: A tribute to John Wayne. For all the great western movies and characters. My favorite John Wayne movie is “Who Shot Liberty Valance?” He always seemed to be a man who would be comfortable out in a field, looking at the clouds pass by.

Bob, where are the margaritas?$49.99 – $250.00
Idea behind the painting: Growing up in Phoenix, we had two seasons: hot and dangerously hot. Temperatures always topped 100 degrees Farenheit in March and would get hotter the remaining summer months. In November it would finally get below 100 degrees in the daytime. Due to the heat, many people had swimming pools. Both in the ground or as in this painting, above ground. I remember seeing my best friend’s parents and their friends hanging out in their above ground pool. They were having drinks and a very good time. I gave each of them about 80 more pounds and reduced the size of the pool. To me…this is farmer country happiness. Cool water, friends and cold beer.

A Hard Night of Painting$60.00 – $230.00
Idea behind the painting: When I graduated college, I painted illustrations for Mesa Magazine and worked as a graphic designer for an ad agency in Phoenix. One week, I had a deadline for the Mesa Magazine, and the ad agency was very busy at the same time. I drank a lot of black tea, stayed up late at nights painting the illustration, and wore headphones listening to some of my favorite rock and roll music. When I submitted the finished painting to the magazine, I painted this self-portrait the following weekend. I was exhausted, but proud I met all my assignment deadlines.

Will Gets a New Truck$59.99 – $299.99
Idea behind the painting: I love vintage cars. This 1942 Chevy truck is one of my favorites. Growing up with farmer boys, I put the truck in front of a barn and added a typical farmer guy in front. Farmers always have dogs, of which most are very smart. To show this, I have the dogs trying to drive away. If you would like to buy the original painting, select size 26.5″ x 36″.

You Can Always Dream$49.99 – $299.00
Idea behind the painting: Growing up in a small town where poverty was the middle class, I know how gray life can be. With this painting I wanted to show that no matter how gray your life is, you can always dream big. Here a girl is looking in a store-front window and imagines a beautiful Hawaiian sunset and some Merry-Go-Round horses to take her there. If you would like to buy the original painting, select size 18″ x 24″.
Beauty and The Beast$79.99 – $350.00Select options
Beauty and The Beast$79.99 – $350.00
Idea behind the painting: There is no standard of beauty. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It can be a human, tree or a small dog that is extremely loyal.
I used to live next door to a woman who had the fattest Chinese Pug dog I had ever seen. It used to make a lot of noise just trying to breathe when it was sitting. He was a very nice and friendly dog even though he was not a svelte dalmatian. So I put him next to a beautiful woman. If you would like to buy the original painting, select size 16″ x 19″.

Why Me? Frankenstein Tribute$49.99 – $299.00
Idea behind the painting: The original Frankenstein movie is a classic. But I always felt Frankenstein was not happy at his creation and a life that was forced on him.

The Man in the Derby Hat$99.99 – $250.00
Idea behind the painting: The man in the derby is Wallace, who was a TV comedy show host for teenage audiences in Phoenix, Arizona. I loved the show, as did all kids did in Arizona, from ages 10 to 25. Kids enjoy blowing bubbles, so I put Wallace in some bubbles to reflect the happiness he brought to teenagers. If you would like to buy the original painting, select size 17.5″ x 24″.
