Vintage Life Jackets for Red Fish

We are plugging away right now on these three 24x24" paintings which will be on display at Red Fish restaurant at the end of June. These are beautiful, I was a little stuck as to what to do but after a very productive meeting with Chef David Friedman some ideas started to come out. Actually, I was amazed that I hadn't thought of exploring some of the nautical themed work that I've done (and there's alot). If you go all the way back to "Fables" (see label) and even further to my first show at the Cameron , you'll see the life preserver has always been around as one of my symbols and of course the series "The Boy Who Loved the Water" from around 2009, can't remember which show they were in, featured a kid wearing a life jacket.

These are going to be amazing as a set, you're gonna love em.
