I'm having space issues! My studio space is packed with too much art (see video). And not only my studio, I have art all over my house. If I had a business degree, I'd be better at promotion, but I have a literature degree, which means I can analyze complex ideas, theories and discuss the impact of literary movements, as well as critical approaches that have shaped the way we view our world today. But I'm not good at selling my art. Nonetheless, here's a video that explains my delimma:

 


An art collector in Washington DC has purchased two pieces of art. No, the buyer is not President Obama, but someone who is employed with the state department. The pieces sold are called "Dog with a Huge Tongue" and "She Loved Books, Art, and Carrots".


 






30 X 40, acrylics and oil paint. A nice painting to put above the head board of your bed. 




 


16 X 20, pastels under glass, framed. 

 





Bob Spycat, Super Spy Cat is weirded out by the anti-science folks who think the world is flat (Flat Earth Society), climate change does not exist, and evolution doesn't really happen. 

 

40 X 40 in a floating black wood frame. acrylics, pumice, very textured, with parts of a world globe attached.





I have completed a few paintings and I'm working on a number of others. I'm also doing some other things. 

 

One project I have resurrected is my zine, True Story!, which I have not worked on since I completed issue # 8 back in 2010. I hope to have a new issue (# 9) by the holidays. Here's a picture from the cover of True Story! # 2, from November 2003:

 

 

True Story! # 2 is famous for the "Bob the Iguana" story. Other projects I am doing are cigar box installations. Here's one with Wonder Woman, a lot of corks, and Mark Twain cussing out bears. My son Zeb watches from overhead:

 

 

I am currently working on two other box installations. Here's a painting I did based on Joan Miro's Blue. I changed my version up some and added a three-dimensional T-rex. The painting is 36 X 36 on a gallery canvas and I call it Tyrannosaurus Miro.

 

 

But I also have a number of other projects and paintings. I'll post more some time. This is enough for now.

 

 

 


I am happy to announce an art collector from south Minneapolis has purchased The Blue Blouse (after Matisse). 




 

 


Here's a picture of my handsome son, Zeb Dylan Scanlan, and myself, standing next to my painting Catch-22, which is part of the Fall Fine Arts Show (flyer below). We drank beers, we told stories, and we made our ancestors proud. The show goes until September 25 at the Solar Arts Building in the Northeast Arts District.
