"The Tollen"

This acrylic painting of the 48' Chris Craft "Tollen" was done for my daughter's boyfriend's parents. We had the opportunity to go out with them on the occassion of the boyfriend's 18th birthday and had a fun day out on the San Francisco Bay. This scene was done from a photo of the boat while it was still in Canada where they purchased it. Very scenic spot!

Dave's Demos

"A Walk to the Beach"
This watercolor was a class demonstration painting for one of my adult classes. I usually spent the first 45 min. to an hour of a 3-hour class doing a demo. Often times I would spend another hour or so on them after I got back to my studio but, in this case, I haven't touched it since. Maybe it's finished, perhaps I need to do a little more. What do YOU think?

The "Squid Killer"
Commissioned for a 4-year-old boy who, being the very bright boy that he is, came up with this concept of a squid killer truck that doesn't kill squid but, rather uses them as ammunition to shoot at other pesky beasties. The squid attaches itself to them and kills them with it's stench.
The truck is manned by two people and is equipped with the squid launcher, an automatic weapon on the cab's roof and missles as well. It also has a wing that comes out on the side when they need to get airborn.
The acrylic painting was a complete surprise for him and he was thrilled and awestruck. He enjoys describing the details that were all his ideas and pointing out the 15 critters that are placed throughout the piece.

Dave's Commissions

These two paintings were done for a couple that live high in the hills overlooking the Napa Valley, (CA.). They were done on stretched canvas and are hanging on two walls in their master bedroom. They are 10 x 12' each and represent the views from their home, minus the foreground roads which they requested I add. I had no problem with that since I felt it would add contrast and depth.
The scene below also shows them driving up the road in their vintage red Ferrari.
...and NO...I did not make enough on this commission to afford a Ferrari of my own!

The Explorer

The amazing rock formations surrounding Lake Powell in Arizona were the inspiration for this watercolor, as well as my love for exploring.
