My grandfather, Marcus McCoy ( technically the first, myself being the second, from my frame of reference at least ) painted this after his experiences in WWII. This particular work is much different from most of his other war paintings, in that it's focus is clearly on the warfare/fighting. I wish I had copies of some of his more abstract work, but this is a fantastic piece to me, regardless.

Very cool Kahola and Toejam.

Mouse, both Lulu's and Dob's work are badass.

INTERIOR/MOVIE THEATER SCREEN

The naked soldier thrusts himself hard against the Innkeeper's daughter as they slide down the wall next to the hole, where light flickers onto them from the other side.
The movie theater image now fills the entire screen.
The Innkeeper's daughter turns him over with force and looks down on him in the final moments leading up to...

CUT TO:

EXTERIOR/PARIS /NIGHT

An EXPLOSION.
FIREWORKS ROCKETS SHOOT up into the sky from HEAT and PRESSURE.

They explode out of the rooftop of the cramped and damp room that separates the thin walls of the red house of sin from the cinema. Above the old theater, now ablaze, the sky is blanketed with every color imaginable. As fireworks shoot up into the night sky over Eiffel's tower, it almost looks like the tower itself is blasting off, above the bright lights of Paris and up into the stars.

Phylp, thank you for your kind words. I thought I recognized you, and the Millbrea association; how time flies! And so did I, off that day's final pitch. It seems that Gorge .10c has always been the gamechanger for me, 'cause that's where I start getting stonewalled.

It all comes back now. Things were contingent on the FDA approvals, for an insulfation med delivery system, if memory serves.

I was retained later by an older couple, down the hill from your Pinon property; designed a Miesian Box which borrowed a page from you and your Husband's Music “conservatory,” with floor to ceiling Kawneer storefront glass, full width Living, Dining, M. Bed, mitre glass x 12 foot returns each side. Also unbuilt, regrettably.

As a Modernist, I thought you might be interested in some of the interiors of my “Avalanche Ranch.”
See, the exterior is a relatively conservative treatment, due to the well intentioned Greyhawk CC&R Design Guidelines.

The Owner's desires for the interior design was another story: “we'd prefer brushed stainless, plate glass, smooth finish drywall...you know – something 'warm and cozy.'” I took this cue to expose some of the primary structural steel, and ended with just about everything else under the sun, from some David Flavin-esque colored fluorescent strip lighting; to the Kitchen sink!

Janice uses Utrecht oils, either on Belgian linen, or directly on mahogany plywood. Generally Impressionist, occasionally Expressionistic. Plein Air. Sometimes in the studio from memory; field painting is really challenging because the light keeps changing, wind with sand can be be problematic, like sex on the beach, from a practical viewpoint.

Locals and visitors to our fair village look to mountain and desert landscapes; when they are looking for an acquisition, so these have proven to be the most commercially viable here.

Janice was hosted by Black Sheep Coffee over the holidays, and was received warmly enough to sustain us for 2 or 3 months – Thanks to all here who may have taken some home! Some have gone to other Topians; the largest single collection is displayed by The Restaurant at Convict Lake.

There's always been a small local art scene, but it seems to have been coalescing over the years. Janice and I were one of five who chipped to to found a Mammoth artists' cooperative gallery: "The Upper Eastside." Marginalized, this was later sold to Tony and Paul, who, having a better grasp of how much a drop-in customer might be willing to spend on an impulse purchase, made a pretty good run of the show, moving up to North Village, with Tony on the Town Council, and Paul the Public Arts Commission chairman.

Likewise, neebee - keep us posted.

Is there any other kind?

I was going to call out a couple of prime efforts but then I started the ole 'but I have to say something about x's work too@' etc. etc. etc. wow.

These latest contributions are just more (MORE!) reasons to view this thread. But I simply can't resist:

KabalaArch - sweet work on that interior. The mind boggles at the money involved in a ski shack ;) Those people? I'm not from the same gene pool, I suspect.

Mtnmum - as always I'm stunned and pleased by your bear paintings. Perhaps some day I might afford a small one. Do you sell your 'seconds?' :D

If you haven't been to the Sorolla exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art yet - do it! The most fearless painting I've ever seen. Genius.
Give yourself plenty of time. I may never approach painting the same again after seeing this show.

Edit: The middle painting is large - 7'x10'! Many of the works in the show are very large. The bottom painting has some amazing brushwork. The highlight in the girl's shoulder is a single stroke of thick, nearly white paint. Bold!

KabalaArch, I sense a bit of Louisa McElwain in Janice's work. Very nice.
She did large plein air works out of the back of her truck, often painting with her fingers, trowels, all sorts of stuff. Wish I had gotten the chance to meet her. Seemed like a cool artist.
