Paintings from the Rose City
I visited Portland OR while on my trip to the Pacific Northwest. My friend Dave Smith has a nice little collection of my work in his recording studio. A couple metal TV trays with pinup girls and a smoking Jesus painting brighten up the basement studio. The pinups I made from classic 1960's photos. They are acrylic and enamel on metal trays. The smoking Jesus is another one of my mutated religious print adaptations. The way JC was posed in this Sacred Heart image lent itself perfectly to placing a bong and a lighter in his mitts.
