This is a detail of my painting  Steve Scott Space Scout. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery.

Space Exploration. It was a busy time in the 1950’s and our pop culture reflected it.

1952 — Two Capuchin monkeys, Pat and Mike, and a pair of mice successfully recovered following a flight to 36 miles launched from Holloman Air Force Base.

In this game Commander Steve Scott assigns his young Space Scouts exciting missions into outer space. The players  scout the universe, report on conditions, maintain outpost and police the planets.

The players must execute the orders as outlined on their Interplanetary Assignment Cards in addition to instructions on the Rocket Speed Indicator. The first player to complete his mission is the winner of the game.

This Mickey Mouse card game was manufactured around 1946 and was included in a ‘six pack’ of other card games. The box measures 2.75″ x 1.875″.

I love the old yellowed tape and the beat up edges. Mickey Doesn’t mind. He just keeps on smiling. Did you know that Mickey Mouse had his 86th birthday in 2014?

This tin wind up toy represents one of the crows from the 1941 Disney animated film Dumbo.The toy was produced eight years after the film’s release to correspond with its 1949 re-release. It was produced in Japan, but under the Marx Toys.

Batman Puzzle DetailBatman Puzzle, 36 x 30, oil on linen, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Batman Puzzle. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

Basic puzzle:  pieces are intended to be put together in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.

British engraver and mapmaker, John Spilsbury, created the first jigsaw puzzle in 1700 when he mounted a map on a sheet of wood which he then sawed around each individual country.  Spilsbury used his product to aid in teaching geography.

My Batman Puzzle was manufactured by Milton Bradley in 1966.

The Batman Cookies (also a puzzle since they are pieces put together in a logical way) were baked by me last week.

 This is a detail of my painting  Buck Rogers Bookst. The painting will be shown at  CK Contemporary Gallery.

I love books. I collect books. I have lots of books. Oddly enough, I rarely have books in my paintings.

As a first step in remedying the situation I gathered up my Buck Rogers Big Little Books for this painting.

Buck Rogers first appeared in Phil Nowlan’s science fiction tale titled Armageddon—2419, published in Amazing Stories in August of 1928. The Big Little Books were published between 1933 – 1943.

Wonder Woman, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Wonder Woman. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

Wonder Woman is not technically a Super Hero because she has no Super Powers. She’s just your ever day Amazonian who is as Beautiful as Aphrodite, as Strong as Hercules, as Wise as Athena and as Swift as Mercury.

Like Superman, Wonder Wonder disguised herself by putting on a pair of glasses. She instantly became Nurse Diana Prince.

This blue game piece represents both Wonder Woman’s plane and the plane that Steve Trevor crashed on Paradise Island

Rounding out the painting is the Golden Lasso of Truth and the bullet deflecting Bracelets
