The Hunter

Measuring 18x24 on gallery wrapped canvas this piece is my first one ever with a red background. I was nervous about how it was going to turn out and now I'm in love. I've only done three red backgrounds but I see a lot more of them in my future. Dripping wet from having just stepped from the river this bear is based on the photographic work of Chris McLennan out of New Zealand who sells me the rights to his photos from time to time. 

Here is why you want this painting:

The year is 2028. You have this piece hanging in your house as part of a collection featuring family photos from the Alaskan cruise you took last May. Your house is on the market because you've decided you want to move to the country, raise chickens, and have sliding barn doors for every room in your house. 

A potential buyer comes in with a Magnum P.I. type mustache, wearing a monocle, and a bright blue bowler hat. You find him a bit pretentious but having always admired monocles you give him the benefit of the doubt. "The bathroom is too small", he says. "I would have gone with eggshell, " he whines. But then he sees the painting. Like a cartoon he bounds into the air, his mustache straightens out, his hat levitates, and his monocle pops out of his eye, all while a guy in the corner blows on a slide whistle. 

"I'll buy your house and pay you triple", he exclaims. 

You sell your house. You buy acreage. You fill your land with chicken and goats and teach them to perform every fourth of July a routine that makes the Hell's Angels in attendance weep for delight. 

So you see, this piece is your destiny.
