route 66 by troy crisswell

this work is oil on panel 11" x 14". finely painted w/ tons of troy's style & a small dose of creepy.
i am not sure if the figure is a ghost or engineer. a visitor commented that it was probably a hobo because they tended to travel w/ dogs for protection. painted w/ a plethora of greens, yet the subject is clearly defined. ( not an easy task ) click the image for a close up.

horizontal works x 3

the first image is by Ronnie Land, paint & varnish on jig-sawed board ( 40" x 30" ). this piece reminds me of the Jonny Quest cartoon. the second painting is " Red Sky " by William Evans of Fayetteville. oil on hard-board ( 24" x 10" ). this work is a nice example of transitional art. ( real subject matter painted w/ abstract colors & form ). last, but not least is a drawing by Martin Pate, conte' & pastel on bristol ( 20" x 16" ). his daughter modeled for this & the image was worked into a painting titled " Obelisk " set in a military cemetery. click the images for a closer look.
