So here are a few paintings I've done in the past few months but didn't get around to posting until now.. I just felt like doing something a bit silly, especially after getting tired of over-intellectualized art in art school. I needed to inject some humour into it! So without further ado...



"I Dream of Pompadors"
acrylic, ink, and gold foil on found object.


These three go together in a triptych called "Underwater Breakfast Appliance" (what can I say, I love breakfast)






"Cowboys Don't E-mail"
collaged postcard   


Well, that's it for now! Of course, comments and criticisms welcome and appreciated.

is it good or bad that i confused the elvis hairdos with buffalos at first?!  i think it adds an (h)air of mystery, actually...

and i love the last one. 
actually they are all great... somewhere in a nice overlap of cartoon and really fine technique...

These are spectacular!  The Underwater Breakfast Appliance series especially stands out to me.  Classy, although they have a wit about them.

It's smart not to eat anything you find in a mirror.

No, I know know exactly what you mean, they do look like buffalo at first glance. I'm alright with that though, I've decided Tongue

i think the double meaning (unintended as it may be) still links to the route 66 of the palimpsest (sorry, i just had to use a postmodernist word and here was my excuse). 
a herd of pompadours.  elvis' hair ghost riding in the sky.  why not, you know?! 
they really look like hairdos, too, once you think about it.
