Celebrating 100 Years of Scouting in Piedmont

Scouting has been in Piedmont since the Boy Scouts were founded in 1910. The local scout council asked me to come up with a design for a banner to hang in the center of town. With the help of our local news editor, I photographed 3 scouts, one from each branch of the organization. This artwork is adapted from the banner design.

Piedmont 44th Annual July 4th Parade Program Cover

To commemorate the fact that the Boy Scouts now lead the annual parade, a special event in Piedmont, CA, the Piedmont Post asked me to paint two scouts carrying our nation’s flag and the BSA flag.  In the background is a landmark known to all Piedmont residents, the Excedra.

American Legion Salute to Father’s Day Cover

The American Legion Magazine asked me to come up with an image for their Father’s Day issue.  We decided that a soldier returning from duty overseas being greeted by his young son who is dressed in his father’s gear was the right image.  Having them salute each other added just the right touch.  The magazine received numerous reprint requests.

Salt of the Earth

I painted this when the farming community was losing many of their small independent farms to foreclosure.  To me, it also symbolized the importance of the family unit, and how families stay together and support each other when times are tough. This painting was honored by the NY Society of Illustrators.

Girl with Umbrella

April Showers Bring May Flowers... and sometimes turtles come with them!  This seemed like a good idea for a painting, so I borrowed my niece and had her pose for the little girl. The turtle came from my imagination.  This is one of my favorite paintings.  My niece, all grown up now, has this painting hanging in her room.

The Buccaneer

I painted this at the beginning of my illustration career, using myself as the model.  It represents, in many ways, the optimism I had about my prospects as an illustrator (and still do)... I also see it as a combination of two influences — Norman Rockwell and NC Wyeth.  Every time I look at it, I am inspired to do a series on “Adventurers”.  It has promise.

Pumpkin Contest

Every year, the City of Piedmont hosts a Harvest Festival, complete with a Farmers’ Market, Jazz Music, and a Kids’ Carnival. Local residents look forward to the Edible Food Contest, in which home grown items of all kinds are judged. This cover design illustrates the importance of starting early on growing that prize pumpkin. It also reminds us that, when transporting large items, it’s better to use your brains instead of your back!

He Knows When You Are Sleeping...

He’s looking at you, and what does he see? That depends on what you’re up to, so you’d better behave yourself, if you want your Christmas wishes to come true. Well, it worked for me when I was a kid. I was on my best behavior around the holidays. This Santa is a constant reminder to kids young and old to be good year round.

Golfing Buddy

This boy is dreaming of the day when he will be tall enough to use his dad’s golf clubs. His pipe, hat, tie and knickers are a reminder of days gone by, when argyle socks might have been in fashion. His golfing buddy is quiet and seems to be doubting if his master will really hit the ball this time or whiff it yet again. Sigh. Everyone’s a critic...

Dressing Up

This girl has decided to play dress-up, borrowing her mom’s old jewelry box to complete her ensemble. It’s amazing how fashionable you can be, just rummaging through an old trunk in the attic. Just be careful of the mousetraps! Do you think “below the ankle” will be in this year? Maybe she’ll start a new trend, if she can just keep her feet in the shoes.

Surviving The Holidays

Holidays can be tough on a mom, especially if she is a working mom, holding down a job and juggling the other things she has to deal with when she gets home. Now she has hungry mouths to feed, of the human and canine variety, so sitting back and relaxing after standing in line at the grocery store is not an option. Gift wrapping?...It never ends!

Number One Dad

There’s something about grilling hot dogs and hamburgers that seems to go along with summer and sports. Dads love to grill - it’s part of our job description. This dad has gone all out to dress for the occasion - the #1 Dad apron is the perfect match for the Hawaiian shirt. The chef’s hat means he takes his job seriously. No one grills stuff as well as your own dad.

Valentine's Day Lunch Break

Computers can sometimes be a challenge, especially when you have a deadline and you don’t know the software. Clearly this gal could use some help - or maybe just a break. Certainly, she is in for a surprise. Nothing says “I love you” quite like flowers and candy, and a lunch date with someone who has a sympathetic and understanding ear.

At Liberty For Lunch

I like this piece because it represents the common laborer, just doing his job, and not really concerned about anything else going on around him. I also like it because Liberty seems to notice him there and is probably impatient for him to scratch her nose with his brush. Keeping a national monument clean is a fine idea, but lunch comes first.
