1928 Ford pick up

I love old cars and trucks. I guess it's a nostalgia thing when life was a bit more simple and you could actually work on your own car. No computers, fuel injection, power steering or brakes. Everything just mechanical and it worked just fine, thanks. My brother owned a 1930 Ford two door Cabriolet when he was in high school and it was great fun. When he graduated he joined the Coast Guard and let his friend "take care of it until he came back". His friend was a dumb shit and totaled it while speeding down a hill. Man was I mad (so was my brother). So this is a little watercolor to remember the good old days.
Watercolor 8 1/2" X 11 1/2" matted to 11" X 14" if you would like to purchase this please contact me.

Sunset in London

I found I was getting too tight with my painting and decided to get as loose as I could with this one. This was done with a palette knife, popcicle stick and index finger. A photo from our trip to London was the inspiration. 10" X 8" oil on canvas panel.

Bernhard Winery

I was in Auburn, Ca. last year and happened by this house with a large stone building in the yard. I took a photo and figured I'd get to painting it sooner or later. Well I finally got to it and here it is. I was impressed by the size of it thinking it must have been a wine cellar or cold storage place of some sort. After contacting the Placer Arts they told me the house in the background is owned by the Placer County Museum called The Bernhard House. The stone building is a winery which was built in 1874 and is now rented to Bambauch Wines.

Back Off

Some times I see people who give the impression they wouldn't hurt a fly but when pushed they will tear you apart, much like a momma bear protecting they're baby. You just can't judge people by what they look like. Things are not always as they appear grasshopper.
This is a little drawing I scanned in and colored with paint shop pro.

Livin' Large

You don't see very many over weight people in Europe so I was surprised to see this large lady at an outdoor cafe. She looked like a happy sort and was enjoying the company of friends while having lunch.
