Plains Drifter

A new piece of art that started out as part of a series that I have done over the years on American Indians living in the upper Midwest in the late 1860's. Nice change of pace for me but it still combines a lot of similar visuals as my farm series of work. Much smaller work also, this original acrylic measures roughly 7x8".

Jimi Hendrix Painting

This painting featuring Jimi Hendrix and two of his quotes is one of the larger acrylic paintings I have ever created. It stands over 6' tall by 36" wide. This is part of the new series I am creating of Rock and Roll legends. The first was John Lennon previously posted here. For me the line "Excuse Me While I Kiss The Sky" fits the transcendental nature of Jimi's music and if you look at this painting you almost know the note and the song that this visual I created captures. I look forward to creating more of this series when time allows.

Family Crest

This is the first family crest request I have ever put together for a client. The family had gone and done the research with records they discovered dated back to the 1400's on what elements were included on their family crest. Also supplied to me were the specifics needed for me to recreate an accurate reproduction. These specifics include the three gold buttons on arms with sleeves of blue sitting atop the crest. Also the shield itself must feature a field of blue with stag antlers displayed on top in gold. All these elements combined created this unique image. This was a fun project to work on.
