Custom Vinyl

Custom RTA Vinyl

I know it ain’t much.  I set apart a side of the studio for my new graphic design business.  I invested in a vinyl plotter, and am able to do custom vinyl design and installs.

I offer competitive prices to local businesses.  There is no need to go online and buy from a stranger!

In addition to custom vinyl, I am able to print banners and flags. I specialize in media that supports our troops, as well as supporting “Shop Local!”

University Club Opening

Angel’s Trumpet, Phoenix, AZ

Angel’s Trumpet
Oil on Canvas – SOLD

University Club opening reception
September 26, 2021

I approach every exhibition with trepidation. I wasn’t sure how the day would go. In fact, I almost did not submit to this group show with the Take Five Artists. I did not have a lot of available paintings. At the last minute I put together paintings that were slated for another show. I am glad I did.

Alfonzo, owner of Angel’s Trumpet

I selected a handful of my American Bar Series paintings. Half were of local establishments, others of bars in Key West and New Orleans. Angel’s Trumpet is a bar in Phoenix on 2nd Ave just off of Roosevelt. The name derives from the owner’s surname, Angelhorn – you get it.

A group of art patrons that had never heard of any of our group just happened to attend the opening. Before long I had an inflated ego as I was told how much they liked my painting.

Take Five Artists

We will be back at the U Club in March 2022 with a new show, new work. I don’t know what I will have – I do have two new large paintings, on still on the easel, of local bar scenes. I also have a slew of abstracts.  And I have a head full of ideas that I have yet to lay out on canvas. Time will tell.

Two Decades of Selected Solo, Invitational & Juried Exhibitions

Gallery One-Oh-One, Mesa, AZ

Two Decades of Selected Solo, Invitational & Juried Exhibitions and other stuff:

This month I will have been on this planet for 60 years. This comes as a surprise to many friends and family.

I have been actively exhibiting  for 2 of those six decades.  Oh, I was in art shows prior to 2001.  But thereabouts, I decided to take my art from hobby to professional. That was the beginning of my American Bar Series of paintings of local dive bars. Continue reading “Two Decades of Selected Solo, Invitational & Juried Exhibitions”

There was an old woman…

There was an old woman lived in a shoe…

This found object, re-purposed assemblage is one of three I submitted to an exhibit in Phoenix.

Sometimes my pieces have messages, sometimes they are merely whimsical. Sometimes they are both.

I am not going to tell you which is which.

Brother do you have the time?

Desert Detritus Clock – Jawbone

I have time. Lots of time for the next three months.

This Monday past I had surgery on my rotator cuff and right bicep. The surgeon told me I had the biggest tear i a rotator cuff he has ever seen.  The detached bicep tendon was just an added bonus.

Today is the first I was actually able to function. Typing is a chore.  My right arm is bound in a sling, and movement is very limited.

I took the time to enter three different art exhibits throughout Arizona.  Each features various subject matter, although all are of my found object assemblage pieces.

Either I will be busy exhibiting this fall, or I will have more rejection slips to add to my collection.
