"MORELSCAPES" is coming to Nashville Indiana for the morel festival celebrations in Brown County this weekend. I will be located at 76 East Main Street in the old State Bank building with a collection of my morel paintings along with different size prints of the originals.
I will have my morel art available at 76 East Main in Nashville Indiana this next weekend May 5 and May 6 for the Brown County Morel Festival. I will have special prints available for the event such as the one posted above. Hope to see you there and good luck hunting those tasty morsels!
Inspired by the Tom Petty song "Free Fallin" this is my interpretation of a life where you have turned your back on the people that have loved you. You broke hearts in your attempt to be what you called freedom only to realize that you were much better off, if you would have stayed where you belong.
This is a one of a kind canvas giclee' from an 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas painting that I completed this week. This giclee' will be auctioned off at the "Freedom Township Mens Club Sports Night" in Ridgeville, Ohio on Wednesday April 4th, 2018.
I worked at Artex Hobby Products from 1976-1978 and met some fabulous people while employed there. They moved to South Carolina and my wife and I decided to stay here in Ohio as we were just starting our family.
Artex Hobby Products was a company that sold roll-on hobby embroidery paints. They had a great art dept. that created many illustrations that were printed on fabric like the old paint by number products. The buyers would purchase a design that they liked and use the roll-on paints to finish the picture. I worked in the marketing dept. that created the catalogs. flyers and marketing products for the company. On occasion I was able to submit sketches and ideas to the art dept. for possible inclusion in the Artex seasonal catalogs.
This was my first art related employment and I included this album to give the viewer an idea of where I started.
