Night Pass is the most recent piece done for jim at vintage exotics. it has quite a dramatic feel. i was especially pleased to be able to convey lateral motion in this piece.

birches askew 14″ x 60″ $2500

this is my most recent large work. it has a high impasto and vibrant color. the stained glass effect of the background works particularly well against the very figurative birches. it looks great in any room.

this is another recent piece done for jim c at vintage exotics http://www.vintageexotics.com/default.htm. different composition in this one. i like the rake of the car and how it seems to be hurtling towards the viewer through corner. it almost makes you feel like you need to hang on to something.

this is the most recent painting completed for jim c at http://vintageexotics.net/Vintage_Exotics/About.html. these paintings are based on photos that jim provides; they are of cars that jim has restored and races. it was a cool shot to work off of, as it gave me quite a lot of leeway to deal with the background. it also called into play my time painting signs, though on a much smaller scale. as a painting it works quite well. it kind of has the feeling of the end of an endurance race. which it was.

on the vine ( 2.5′ x 5.5′ ) $2,500

this is my most recent large work. it is based on memories of southern france, where leona and the kids and i spent a year while she was on a fulbright exchange. it  is a lush painting with a lot of my favorite blues. high impasto areas contrast with large flat areas. many layers of glazing really bring out a subtle brilliance and clarity. this would look great in anyones home or business. it is currently hanging in UnCorked on glenn st. in downtown glens falls.

le mans corvette ( 2′ x 3′ ) NA

this piece  is the second in a series of automotive paintings commissioned by jim cantrell of team raptor and vintage exotics competition engineering in phoenix AZ. a Corvette; it is a GT-1 class running at le mans.  It also ran IMSA GTO back in the day.  the painting is derived from a photo which is quite dark and blurred.  i sharpened and brightened the image and after much research even uncovered the  advertising in the background, which is distorted beyond recognition in the photo. the painting has a great ambience and captures some of the change of speed  the car (and viewer) experience through the final chicane. for this series i am keeping the surface fairly flat, with texture implied and impasto (which i enjoy using in most of my other work) kept to a minimum.

American Telco ( 2′ x3′ ) NA

this piece; “american telco” is the first in a series of automotive paintings commissioned by jim cantrell of team raptor and vintage exotics competition engineering in phoenix AZ. it is a pretty straight forward project.  the point of focus in the original photo was behind the driver, with all the motion in front of the car. for the painting i moved the point of focus forward, and added some sense of motion at the back. i also intensified the color and the contrast making for a very nice painting of a very fast car.
