Elvis Impersonator unfinished
Here is me taking a wack at wacky cartoon style oil painting. This is only a small part of a bigger painting based on an A Greek Elvis impersonator playing at a local park in Sierra Madre. It's funny how if I work in brown tones my stuff ends up looking a little like Glenn Barr. That’s one of the reasons I don't do the Juxpose thing. I feel like I was one of the granddaddies of it, yet no gallery knows it and I don't want to start at the bottom and put in years into selling to get to where Glen is. The subjects I would have love to have done: Mary Blair meets the Flintstones , crossed with Big Daddy Roth, Frenching Robert Mc Ginnis have been done well by others. I'd be coming into a world I helped get started with Ren and Stimpy and seem like a was copping everyone else. That's why I decided to do the modern landscape thing. I wanted to try something new and also work hard at it and learn and explore a different see of my brain.
