51 Military Jeep with Star

51 Military Jeep with Star

My first military vehicle is a 51 Jeep owned by my cousin Jason in Kansas. Shot it on cold January day with snow on the ground –  my parents & I were attending a memorial service for my uncle Jean. Prominent on the table at the service were clippings and objects commemorating his service.

The star and patterned background is the Jeep’s passenger side door from a perspective side shot towards the front. I choose this to somewhat abstractly pay tribute to the armed forces & these tough vehicles in light of movies and stories I’ve heard. I would love to have you post what you see in this piece… :)

Electra Glide – Ghost Ride…

 

 

Finally in town during the Republic of Texas (ROT) Rally. Since I was not on the official list*, was not allowed to take photos in the official event space, but met these guys out in the parking lot. Instead of searching out more bikes around town, decided to let let Serendipity play out and followed my muse on the first shot. Inspired by the ‘Ghost Rider’ film we we watched recently (Nicolas Cage), I added flames coming from the skull, but on the ground seemed too much – a little dust will suffice ;) Yes there is something ‘fairly ‘hidden’ – see the pic below for a ‘big’ hint. Needs a little more work, but finally have an image with a ‘Harley-Davidson’ in print.

 

Ready to ROT Guys

Hey guys – can’t wait to hear from you to see what you think?

* Had tried online email form and phone calls – nice girl at sign-up said you have to sign-up in January.

VW Bus Baby Blue – Travel Spirit

VW Bus Baby Blue – Travel Spirit

VW Bus photo montage featuring old waving American flag, Colorado mountain scene with trees and lake reflection, pump-jack license plate, and a pillar from my studio to represent a home base.
Van was shot in March, 2014 in front of my studio at the Violet Crown Center in Austin, Texas. Sky was part of the shot, but heavily modified, faint New Mexico badlands background fades into the parking lot surface.

This may be the first in what I’m calling a ‘Travel Spirit’ series…

You can now find some of my work in Carlos Moseley’s new, larger River Rustic Gallery at 222 West Main in Fredericksburg, Texas. Right now he has a few on display with more in the back. You’ll also find other artist friends work there. Next time you are out there shopping drop in and tell Carlos and his wife Carol ‘hi’.
