Sir Alex Ferguson Unicorn Art

By request; a painting of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson riding on top of a unicorn that looks somewhat like El Beatle George Best while a dolphin jumps out of the turf and under a rainbow in the background. The horn of the unicorn doubles as both the source of the rainbow and the staff of the Manchester United football flag.  The tail of the unicorn doubles as a tornado.

Two New Obama Portraits, Sans Pancakes

Two new 8 by 10 acrylic portraits of President Barack Obama.
The first portrait uses a range of delicate color variations for the skin tones, plus metallic gold and copper acrylic. Prevalently, it fails to depict the President with a pancake on top of his head-

The second portrait is like the first, in that it also fails to position a pancake on top of the President's head.  I call this form of Obama Art Portraits Of President Barack Obama Sans Pancakes.

Some might argue that there indeed could be pancake on top the President's head in both of these painting but out of sight, but I will tell you as the artist that there isn't.

Bob Dylan Tempest Portrait Painting

A new large black and white portrait painting of the older Bob Dylan in honor of his recent Tempest album
Before anyone argues with me, let me point out that butter and syrup are not considered toppings. A topping would be slices of banana, or perhaps some sort of compost.

This is a 24 by 30 inch painting, stapled in the back and painted black around the edge. Lots of interesting linework.

Lady Kate Middleton Nude Topless Pancake Breasts Painting, Ebay

A new painting of the beautiful Lady Kate Middleton nude and with topless pancake breasts.
Before anyone argues with me, let me point out that butter and syrup are not considered toppings. A topping would be slices of banana, or perhaps some sort of compost.

This painting is executed in black and white acrylic on a large stretched canvas, and with a generous amount of silver iridescence.

This painting would make for a great surprise baby shower present for Lady K from an admiring fan.

4 New Male Nude Art Paintings

Four new male nudes, painted with an intentionally limited color palette which included a few metallics but no black. The darker areas are from mixing blue with copper and also some red, and then repainting over that mixture when the paint is dryer to create darker tones.  As with all of my male nudes, I am the model.  The side view painting below is from a photo which I originally posted to my Flickr nude artwork gallery and which Buzzfeed then included in an article regarding my Obama paintings a few months later-

What I think is the best painting from the last group of 4 nudes is still sitting there on Ebay, I suppose because the pose is strong.  But, I do think it's one of my best paintings this year-

The Pancake Master, Portrait Painting & Signed Book

Inspired by the Paul Thomas Anderson film The Master, I've decided to part with a family heirloom I've had stashed away in the back of the kitchen pantry for decades-a painting by an unknown artist of The Pancake Master. The painting is accompanied by a copy of the classic self-help tombe The Pancake Master, and is personally inscribed by The Pancake Master himself. The inscription reads 'Be The Pancake' and is made out to someone named 'Freddie.'

The Master, Pancake

The portrait is a very handsomely sized 24 by 30 inch stretched canvas. It seems to be painted in acrylic.

The Master, Pancake

A copy of the thrift store classic we are all so familiar with...Yes YOU!  THE PANCAKE MASTER.  The Secret Science of Controlling One's Own Breakfast.

The Master, Pancake

The book itself is in excellent shape. The cover seems to be custom printed on a durable sheet of canvas.  The back cover sports a photo of the painting!

The Master, Pancake

How these items fell into my hands I cannot say.

The Master, Pancake

This large canvas painting of The Master is stapled in the back and painted black around the edge, so it may be displayed effectively as-is, although I would think it would benefit tremendously from a frame which communicated boardroom and hungry.

Four New Male Nude Paintings

After a break of a month or so I've started to post new self-nudes to Ebay but this time at a set price; I posted one a few days ago and it sold immediately, so if that continues to happen I'll continue to add newer paintings. I keep a gallery of past male nude art on my flickr.

Which reminds me; I have an invitation from Art Of Man magazine for an interview and article from more than a year ago, but I always have the feeling that better work is coming so I hesitate to pull anything together. I guess that could go on indefinitely.

FYI-the paintings linked below are for the unpancaked versions.This is of course a family friendly blog.

Prince Harry Nude Billiards Royal Blush Wine Label Painting #2, Ebay Art Auction

I've placed a second version of my 'Prince Harry Nude Billiards Royal Blush Wine Label' painting as a three day auction on Ebay-

Prince Harry naked nude billiards Royal Blush wine label painting #2

This painting is very similar to the first painting, with the same body placement and color theme but with many small variations.  Higher chroma and a more manly physique to Harry than in the first painting.

Thanks to the many sites which have posted stories regarding my painting during the past few days, including NewYork Magazine, Jezebel, Pink Is The New Blog, Huffington Post, Elle magazine, ETonline, Buzzfeed, etc. I've posted many of these links to my twitter.

Tonight Show Romney Nude Ebay Segment Photos

Finally found photos from the Romney Nude painting  that appeared a few months ago in one of The Tonight Show's continuing  Ebay segments.  I've had fans email me twice in the past half year to say they saw one of my paintings on the program.

Michael Clark Duncan Green Mile Memorial Portrait

A portrait of late actor Michael Clark Duncan as John Coffey in Stephen King's The Green Mile -

This is an 8 by 10 inch acrylic painting on a sheet of canvas from a canvas pad. It can be framed as any photograph; I recommend removing the glass and adding an additional sheet of backing cardboard to keep the painting in place.
