Airstream Gothic

If Grant Wood had paid a bit more attention to what really makes America tick, we might have had this hanging in Chicago's Art Institute today...

Excellent taste in art! That will go next to my dogs playing pool which is next to my dogs playing poker!

Cosmo, you flatter me. Those are truly classic works of art, right behind any velvet Elvis paintings.

Now does that come in a 30x40???? I would love that to hang in my Safari, oh, wait, that's half the size of the Safari, OK, I'll have to settle for a 16x20...
What an excellent pic!!!

American Genius

A stroke of genius, Brad! I now have new wallpaper on my monitor (hopefully with the permission of the Artist!!!

I recently visited Stone City, which is the setting of one of my favorite Woods paintings. We live about 30 miles south of Anamosa, Wood's hometown. Our little local home-town Carnegie library (unbeknowst to the rest of the world) has one of the largest collections of Wood lithos in the country. Too Cool!!!

Wow, thanks guys. Just goofing around, thought that poor couple needed a vacation. They're such sour pusses, you know?

Hey Tin Can, if you want I can send you a higher res version for your flamingo sale, which sounds pretty hilarious as is, without my pic! And any of you can use it, I certainly don't care!

HEy that's great, I would love that.....If you dont' mind. I don't know if you saw the thread on the house tour we're having, but our friend on the corner is going to sell flamingos out of the gutted 64 Overlander....He wants me to paint the inside Pink though.......hmmmm....

I will post pics of the flamingos he designed and sent off to Japan for production, they are so cool.....

you can send em to ronulrich@sbcglobal.net.

Thanks again!!!!

Ron

Howdy X, thanks for asking! No project yet, since we're waiting for money, time, warmer weather... and most of all - closer proximity to it. It's at my father-in-law's about an hour north near Lake Geneva, WI. Without anyplace closer, I'm afraid we'll either have to:

1. Work on it very peacemeal, a weekend or two each month over the course of several years... or,

2. Sell the condo and find a tiny little home in our area with a backyard large enough to shoehorn her in. I figure if you can't see it from the street, no one can complain, right? We'll simply plant several tall coniferous trees along the fence and voila - I'll be able to work on her every spare minute. I am SO flippin' excited!
