Buck Rogers Crayon Shipdetail
Buck Rogers Crayon Ship, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Buck Rogers Crayon Ship. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

This is “school crayon” No. 019 made by American Pencil Company New York in 1936.  One side of the box depicts Buck and Wilma looking through a porthole . The opposite side depicts “Buck Rogers Crayon Ship” with die-cut square on right where pencils are visible and completes the ship design. The box contains six  multi-colored pencils.

The ‘chalk drawings’ (yes, these are painted with oil paint) are also based on the graphics from this box.

Old Crow DETAIL

Old Crow,oil on cradled board, 9 x 12

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

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.

This vintage toy is one of my favorites and has a place of honor on my desk next to my easel.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman detail

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
