One of the great things about art is the ability to have fun and try new and different things.  In the painting pictured above, I thought it would be great to paint a horse looking around a corner of an old barn to see what I was doing.  This painting is 42 x 30 Acrylic on canvas.

 


In the painting below, I have always been a fan of the late Bob Ross, he could paint a masterpiece in 30 minutes.  This painting, I thought would be great to paint a "Bob Ross" type of fall setting and add a "Star Wars" Storm  Trooper  taking a ride in the country looking at the foliage.

Drive in the Country

The painting pictured above was a lot of fun.  I took a piece of canvas about 40 x 30 and stapled it on the wall.  I then painted it with black gesso. Using Montana Spray paint, I sprayed with no pattern all over the black canvas.  Next I took a generous amount of white gesso on my finger and flicked it onto the canvas.  Before the gesso dries, take a razor blade and make vertical and horizontal  marks to spread out the gesso like a star burst. For the  planets, I cut out a circle with a with contact paper and protected the area and painted airbrushed the planet.  The X wing and Obe One was painted with acrylic.

Retirement

I saw this boat abandoned, and exposed to the elements for a considerable amount of time and thought it would be a great painting.  It is unknown how long it has been out of the water, but the time and trouble the  boat owner went to decorate the boat must have been very important.  I was so fascinated by the boat, I wanted to paint it.  It gives another view of retirement

Hueys in Vietnam

If you could not tell by now, the Huey Helicopter is my favoriate "Combat Art" subject.  This is a 10 x 20 canvas board.  I spray painted the entire board with Montana spray paint. Once that dried, I painted the mountains with an airbrush and the trees with a stencil.  I used a circle cutout to paint the setting sun. The two Huey's are hand painted with Acrylic.

Yupo paper provides a great surface to paint.  It is like having an erasable water color paper.  It is a great surface to move and blend paints and experiment with different looks and effects. I painted the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
