Outta This World #2(8x10,oils, SOLD!)
*Roq La Rue Gallery(www.roqlarue.com) in Seattle, WA is doing a fantastic show from mid-April on called "Amazing Visions". The show is a group show of sci-fi and fantasy art, many by big names of the genre. To add to two of my larger pieces, I did these smaller ones-there will be four in all, all 8x10 and framed. They'll be on display at the gallery when the show opens so please contact them for price and availability!
They'll be one more up here soon so you can see the four. The idea was to do some kind of light-hearted, pulpy style paintings, in oils, that kind of cross the sci-fi bridge with popular culture and old rocket toys. I mean, isn't that what it's all about?? This is what I got into it because of, so the feel of these being retro is very deliberate. Just a joy to paint! I collect toys and they primarily consist of cool space ships and giant monsters.
A note here, I'm taking a few days off for some Australian friends who are passing through, so this week will be sporadic in posts, but you're getting a two-fer here today, so have fun and enjoy!
