Decoration Dazzle in the Dark
Much of the time when I'm painting one piece, happy accidents trigger an idea for another piece. For example, when I'm painting the trappings on a carousel horse, I've frequently gotten the colors or values too bright. While I do like the garishness, I freq...

Breaking the Colt
My expertise (snicker) in horse training is derived largely from the movie  The Man from Snowy River . Actually, back when I played piano a lot more, there was a sister--who did work with horses regularly--of an ex-girlfriend of mine who would frequently ...

Fresh Airless
My son saw me painting all these astronauts in scenes--that I found amusing--on the moon, and it occurred to him that an astronaut should be cast in my  role--as the artist. Upon hearing that, contrary to how we grown-ups are reflexively inclined to dismiss...

Just Thought It Was Cool
Very simply, I love fusing two ideas together such that the result is engaging, clever, compelling, and, dare I say it, cool. Yeah, I know my use of the word "cool" might be a little presumptuous, buuut, when you inject the Bride of Frankenstein--and monste...

Just in Case
What if an astronaut got so wrapped up in his hunt for moon rocks his team left without him? Could he say, "Wait! Come back!"? Maybe they ought to put a phone booth on the moon...ya'know?...just in case. It certainly would make being on the moon feel a smid...

Saturn Hula Hoop
So we're gonna say Saturn is the "Hawaii" of the solar system. That's because Saturn does the hula. Wait, what? Okay, more precisely, Saturn does the hula hoop. I had this funny idea that an astronaut might stand on some celestial object, say, the moon, and...

In Space, No One Can Hear You Sing...
...but wouldn't it be cool if they could? I just love taking two visual ideas and fusing them together such that they almost  seem possible. My "for instance," in this case anyway, is music on the moon. I mean, I know there's no air, but doesn't just seem l...

Moon Angel
Ever buy a Halloween costume not for Halloween? For a child? Actually, it was "for me," insofar as I was going to have my sons model for an art idea I had. We went to a school field, and my sons took turns wearing an astronaut costume--that I bought in Janu...

Moving Heaven and Earth
Whatever it takes.... Just do it.... You see where this is going. Playing with language, it struck me that "moving heaven and earth" could be turned into an appealing visual. I then figured if I paint (and post) a picture titled, "Moving Heaven and Earth," ...

Throat Hug
My son posed his Lego Darth Vader into the "killing pose." Of course, that it's Lego makes it look amusing, adorable even. I thought it'd be fun to capture it as a little painting. I wanted to paint it fast, trying to keep it fresh and loose, as it were. Wi...
