Retired after working with investment securities and portfolios for over 35 years. My interest in politics, history and the economy will provide a jump off for moneythoughts. From time to time I will post pieces of my artwork. I call my artwork political satire and I welcome your comments. I am available to speak or write economic commentary for money managers, brokerage firms or anyone else that thinks my ideas offer something worth while.
This piece was based on a sketch I made on the back of an envelope several years ago, and that I found while cleaning my house. I had a piece of half inch plywood 12" x 18" and decided give it a go. The above painting is that go. I made patterns from cereal box paper and then place the objects on the board until I liked the composition and then I went to work.
The top piece, Altarpiece No, 2, is a construction and made of half inch birch plywood, popular and pine. The paintings are done in acrylics.
The 2 middle pieces are constructions of the same materials as above, and are painted with acrylics. The one on the left is Mother & Child: An American Icon; and the piece on the left is Level Playing Field with Butterfly and Sunflower.
The third piece is My Coat of Arms with Three Butterflies, painted in acrylic on half inch birch plywood.
This is what I have accomplished with my summer so far and I am still working.
