Let's Bowl is an oil paint stick painting on an acrylic base. It is inspired by bowling shirts and the funky Bryant-Lake Bowl in Minneapolis. BLB is a good place to grab a craft beer, a great meal, and some bowling, if you are into that. Lots of dreads, mohawks, tattoos, purple hair, etc in a 1950s decor bowling alley. A great place to hang out.

 

Let's Bowl is 16 x 20 x 1.5 inches on a gallery frame.

My son Zeb is the lead singer and writer for a heavy metal band called JonnyallenThe band's first CD, with the working title "Moment of Repose", will be released later this year. The band may use my art for the CD cover. Zeb asked for something dark, not too much color, so I came up with this Picasso-knockoff, from Guernica.

This painting uses oil paint sticks entirely, 20 x 20 x 1.5 inches on a gallery frame.

I did this painting titled Teacher for myself, but Jonnyallen may use it for their CD cover, also. This painting is inspired by elementary student drawings from back when I taught in the classroom. Teacher is 22 x 30 x 1.5 inches on a gallery frame, oil paint sticks with acrylic and pumice.
