2015 Holiday Card

Peas 2015 XMas

My official sick Holiday card for this year has arrived. It is a continuation of my Christmisscommunications Series. The back of the card (on left) was inspired by the SF novel” Make Room! Make Room!” by Harry Harrison made into the film, “Soylent Green ” in 1973 and the pun was suggested for this card by by my wife, Janny Wurts.

Banyan Canyon Rodeo

Banyon Canyon Rodeo

Banyan Canyon Rodeo began as a small, 12″ x 9″, plein air painting on the grounds of the Ringling mansion in Sarasota,FL.  A squirrel scampered about and preened on a branch as I was painting. In the studio, the painting cried out for more interest and I remembered the squirrel’s visit and decided to imagine what might go in at this location when no one is looking.
