Larger Works, Yes Sir!

After viewing blog photos of my artwork on display at the Applegate opening, someone emailed me that he would like to see me do larger works. So, I thought I would post just a few of the larger works that I have painted.

I plan to take snapshots of the interior of my studio as well (for the curious), because the larger paintings shown here are only the tip of the iceberg. My newer works, the monkeys and the pierrots, are more intimate, delicate works (like medieval Italian painting), but I have been doing larger works all along for many years.

All in all, the size of a painting does not matter. It's all about the layering of ideas and the layering of paint, the design elements and the imaginative details, and, most importantly, the injection of feeling into a painting that gives a work of art it's mesmerizing powers.

Fred Stonehouse, Soulful Painter

"The Smile Of Winter" by Fred Stonehouse Copyright 2006
I have to say that one of the biggest thrills of my recent trip to California was driving up to West Hollywood to meet Fred Stonehouse (and family!). He also happened to be having an art opening the same day as mine. His was a solo show at Koplin Del Rio Gallery and I picked up a mini-poster from the show of "Frutti Proibiti".

Be sure to check out his show online- Fred Stonehouse

I talked to him (and Sandow Birk!) for about half an hour before heading off to my opening. Later on, after his party was over, he came down to my gallery in Santa Monica to check out my show! Very, very nice man and one of my favorite artists in the true sense of the word. An American original.

More Aces Show Photos

Here are some more photos from the "Aces" show at Applegate Gallery In Santa Monica, CA that opened April 22, 2006.

Aces Show, Santa Monica

I just got back this week from Santa Monica, CA. The opening at the new Applegate Gallery was amazing! Here's a picture of my friend and me (I'm on the right - hair in ponytail). They also showed my Little Pierrots on the other side of the gallery in front of large picture windows.
