Had a great time last weekend at the Cain Park Arts Festival in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.  Thanks to all for stopping by my booth.  Special thanks to the Cain Park staff for their commitment to making this show as easy as possible for the artists!

Portion of a mural painted by CIA students - I love this!



Pictured below are several shots of my recent larger sized work entitled "Freak Flag # 2015."  Instead of watching people blow things up on the 4th of July I stayed home and finished this painting.  This is a tribute to many many things ...peace and love to all.

Fifi's New Season

 

Today I said farewell to a painting that I completed in April of this year called "Fifi's New Season," shown above.  Fifi was shipped to a private collector in Los Angeles, California.  I hope she fares well in SoCal, I am going to miss her!

Neko, Jr.

 

This mini is a companion piece to the the mini that I posted yesterday (33 Rivers).  I often work on 2-3 minis in tandem, and in this case there is actually a third mini that I am still working on that rounds out this trio of small pieces I've been tinkering with in June.  Also, this mini is the offspring of "Neko And Her Wafers", a 17x17 piece that I completed earlier this month.

33 Rivers

 

Pictured above is my latest mini, "33 Rivers," which is a tribute to all of my good friends in the Pittsburgh area.  Still smiling from a great trip to the Three Rivers Arts Festival last weekend.
