Don's unique style borrows from book illustrations, commercial renderings, and still life paintings, but for him it's not about technique. His goal is to evoke a sense of playfulness, often with a sprinkling of nostalgia, using color and composition to tell a story. This gallery page is dedicated to the child in all of us.

Movie Night.jpg

Artist's Note

"Pinky & Pedro" are completely fictional, but to me they represent the imagination of childhood. You may sense that Pinky is a bit of a sadist, presiding over Pedro as he cluelessly  faces one peril after another.  (When Kong falls in the movie, will Pedro fall into the soup?) Each painting in this short series tells a story, but the plotlines are all the same --

some kid is having a great time!    - Don
