We represent!

Opening this Saturday!

“The Lollipop Guild”

Invitational Miniatures Show

Lovetts Gallery

Tulsa, Oklahoma
JUNE 20 - JULY 20, 2015

I cordially invite you to "The Lollipop Guild" show at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20, 2015! All art exhibited in this show will pull inspiration from the beloved classic “The Wizard of Oz.” I am excited to exhibit two pieces in the show that are small in size but big in inspiration.

The Scarecrow.

"Abstract Thought (Raven)"

Graphic Pencil on 1/2 in. Maple panel
8 x 16
This piece is one of two I created for the themed show “The Lollipop Guild” at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Inspired by the classic movie “The Wizard of Oz,” I wanted to create a piece based on the Scarecrow character and would have never guessed how difficult it would be to find a scarecrow for my reference.
I still hadn’t found my needed scarecrow as I headed out to Tulsa for my exhibit at the gallery in November 2014. On my two-day drive out, I was on the constant lookout, head turning, camera always ready and still nothing. As I drove up to the gallery on the day before the show, I was amazed to find two scarecrows greeting me at the entrance of The Farm Shopping Center where the gallery is located. How perfect: The scarecrow reference I needed for Lovetts’ “Lollipop Guild” show was found at Lovetts.
This particular piece was originally planned to be a painting but, as with the original film, I thought it better as a black and white.

The Cowardly Lion.

"The Nerve (Lion)"

Oil on 1/2 in. Maple panel
12 x 9 in
When given the challenge to create two pieces for “The Wizard of Oz”-inspired show “The Lollipop Guild,” at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I immediately thought of the Cowardly Lion. After spending several hours looking at the character from the film, as well looking at my reference photos, I finally found the perfect expression that I thought captured both the Cowardly Lion and the “King of the Forest” who realized he had “the nerve” all along. All that is missing is the little red bow!
