The UPS Store

IMGP0797Well, life continues to get more amazing. The general manager of a neighborhood UPS store asked if they could use my painting of President Barack Obama to demonstrate how large a print they could make.  So now, if you want to go to this store, at 3815 South Othello Street in Seattle, you can see a big giant copy of my painting “Looking Presidential.”

Twas a time when gas was so cheap, that luxury cars could weigh tons.  And to some people, my uncle Charlie Malle, in fact, a car was a thing of beauty.  He spent a lot of time waxing and shining his cars. This is his Buick Roadmaster.  Decorating the hood is my Aunt Tess.

willsmith191 Artists can be opportunists, and I am no exception. When this gentleman showed up in my office building, I knew I had to paint his face. What a relief it was to me when he was amenable to the idea. Look out, mad painters abound in every corner and you never know if you will be the next victim!

73379-jessicaThanks to the wonders of the internet I am able to learn along side of other artists from any corner of the world. For practice painting portraits, we do “exchanges.” This was my third exchange, I happened to get as a partner a lovely young lady from the Bahamas. Yet another miracle in this technical world; you get to see her face on your computer monitor as painted by yours truly. I am awaiting her attempt at sketching my face.
