Big Daddy (Ed) Roth & Rat Fink Portrait

This is for  tonight Nibblefest starting at 7pm EST on Ebay!

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (March 4, 1932 –
April 4, 2001) was an artist and cartoonist who created the hot-rod
icon Rat Fink and other extreme characters.

This months Nibblefest theme was Rodents, and I thought to my self

"Self, what are you going to do with that?!"

I'm not really a cute story book mouse type painter.Then I remembered one of my childhood heroes. "RAT FINK! and the man who created him.

SO, in tribute to Ed Roth, who gave me hours of pleasure not
only as a child but also as an adult (I still have some Weirdos models
in my basement waiting to be painted as we speak) , I give you the Big
Daddy Roth & Rat Fink portrait.



This is an original oil painting , working from black and
white and interpreting what colours should be there I hope I managed to
get the feeling of those crazy hot-rod beatnik days!

Roth & Rat Fink have been painted on a wooden floor board
pulled out of an over 100 year old factory which has been gessoed to
protect the painting, I have left the side UNPAINTED .I wanted it to
have that homemade feeling so typical of hot-rods of the day!

"This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art
contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search
for NFAC to see more great entries, each starting at just 99¢. Thanks!"
please note due to the ebay strike we moved Nibblefest till the
27th to avoid any conflict with sellers who were participating in the

Horse running through the snow.

This painting was part of a two hour painting challenge. I had two hours to complete the painting, from start to finish!

I liked the way the horse was running through the snow, which flew up underneath his hooves.

I designed a set of Purple Tree HAIKU ACEO's (Artists Cards Editions & Originals) a few years ago; after initially creating Purple Tree Note Cards and selling them for awhile.

NEW...this same design is now available in RED via my website OR my new Etsy shop! This set of 5 ACEO's includes 5 different 5/7/5, 17-syllable HAIKU written on the backs in India Ink.

This set is so much nicer in person than the pic can depict. It's a wonderful set to give as a gift to a special friend and/or loved one. OR...give away one-at-a-time to lift someone's spirit, bring a smile to someone's face or just to say "have a nice day" in a HAIKU kind of way. :)

I ship the set in matching artsy fiber paper wrapped with fibers.

If you'd rather have the PURPLE set, it's still available in both shops also.

Newest Celtic Tree of Life Drawing

I started this on the weekend, and just finished it this morning. It's the latest in my Tree of Life series of drawings, done in ink on textured handmade mulberry paper. The paper has real leaf and petal inclusions, for a wonderful earthy feel. This piece would make a unique addition to a collection of Celtic or spiritual art.

Now available in my Etsy shop!

Tree of Life Abstract Painting

This is my newest painting, the first in a series of small abstract paintings based on the Celtic tree of life. The tree of life is a common theme in my work, but I thought it would be fun to explore some modern interpretations inspired by this classic motif.
