Verlander Pieces...

Everyone needs a celebrity collector, and I just got my first one. Justin Verlander, pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, commissioned these pieces last month. I had done smaller pieces that he saw, but they had already sold. Hope this is the first of many!

Ball and Mitt, each are 12x12", oil on linen panel, SOLD

Haralson Mill

This is a great mill complex not far from Riverwood Studios in Senoia, GA. A great deal of The Walking Dead is done in the area and this building was used in the season 3 intro. This place has been getting a ton of traffic, and sadly things have gone missing and the owner lets no one the property anymore. I have been here several times and never encountered a soul... until this day. While taking pictures a van load of "walkers" dropped in to see what was going on. I sent them do downtown Senoia, Old Town Sharpsburg and to the old Brown Steel plant in Newnan. It is excited to see all of the newly emerging interest in these old landmarks, but sad to see them being mistreated.

Small Value Study, Road to Hazel, 2x6in, oil on linen
Grabbed a quick iPhone picture of this stand of trees in a pasture right as I drove by it at Christmas. It was blurry and had just the right information to have fun with. I did a small study, then an 8x24in version and I still want to do it bigger.
