Tiger Eyes

My newest artwork is called "Tiger Eyes." I received numerous requests for a tiger after a painted the hog and the bison. This was enormous fun, with all the fur and stripes. I have the original displayed in the store window. It is 36 x 48 on gallery wrapped canvas for $1500. Prints are also available at the shop or at my eBay store here.

Liberace would be proud!

Here is a frame I recently completed for a customer. The centerpiece is a business card that was signed and dedicated by Liberace himself. 

"Lee," as his friends called him, was always a bit over the top with his attire and everything else that surrounded him. Accordingly, I was glad when I was given permission to do as I pleased with this job. The situation begged for a grandiose treatment: so that's what I did. 

The card was mounted on a medium blue suede. This is surrounded by custom fabric wrapped ivory mat with encrusted sequins and faux pearls, the window of which is lined with white feathers to give it the fabulous "fur" effect. Finally I chose a traditional ornate frame which I refinished in silver and bedazzled with rhinestones. 

My customer was blown away by the finished design, guaranteed to be a conversation starter. It is always nice to have free reign creatively on a unique project. If you have a special item in your collection you would like to show off in a distinctive frame or shadow box, bring it by the shop and we'll discuss some options.

Black Belt Display

This week I wanted to share a Black Belt display I recently completed for a customer. The folded belt is placed in a matted shadow box with an accompanying photo. This piece was intended to celebrate the achievement of black belt in Tae Kwan Do by Shawn Barger, shown in the photo with Master Hann on the day of his testing.

It Has Eight Legs!

Hi. I just wanted to share a picture of this octagonal frame I made for a Honduran women's blouse. There is a mirror mounted in the center where the head/neck hole is.

Also, we are getting new art in this week. So keep an eye on my window or come by and say "hi."
