I painted Angelina Jolie's patio!

Angelina Jolie purchased the Cecil B. DeMille estate recently...and it occurred to me, "hey, I know that place!"  Back in the 80's when I lived in LA a friend asked me to help him paint murals on the patio of the estate. At the time, the home was being prepared for a designer showcase. (Each room was to be decked out by a different designer.) Parking was dreadful and security tight! But friend and I managed to paint lovely art nouveau designs in assigned areas...  I had hoped to see the inside of the home, but was denied entrance. True story, lol. :)

Randall Sees All painting of a black cat in landscape

Randall Sees All  Oil on panel, 6" x 6," SOLD
Photo references for the background of this painting were shot at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, the former home to F.A. Seiberling who co-founded The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.  It is a grand estate, open to the public...  It was built between 1912 and 1915, well worth a visit if you are ever in Akron, OH.

Yellow String and Painting White Cats

Yellow String  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
Painting white cats can be tricky, understatement. But it's good to back up and try again.  I'm including "Lucretia" and "The Invitation" here...  They both influenced "Yellow String." 
Lucretia (available here) and The Invitation, sold.
