Here are some originals of mine that have recently found new homes with collectors in NYC, L.A., Austin, etc.
The top two fine art paintings were award winners in national competitions, Communication Arts Magazine and the American Illustration annual. The "Homage" painting was also exhibited in NYC some years ago at the Museum of American Illustration in a show called "Dreams". The antique ukulele was part of my "Dreamgirls and Ukes" show in Los Angeles. The pencil drawing was a preliminary sketch for a painting that was shown in a Brooklyn, NY gallery a few years back (the painting is still available). The circle painting is one of my "Little Pierrot" series (10 Little Pierrots were selected winners in the American Illustration annual some years ago and 4 were shown in a Santa Monica gallery).
