Four Hearts #1 and #2… Gift for Sweetest Day??

I was reminded by a friend that Sweetest Day is coming up on October Saturday, October 19th.  Sweetest Day is apparently a tradition that started in 1927 just north of me in Cleveland, Ohio.

Whatever its roots, I have two “Four Hearts” original paintings that might make someone in your life smile on this years Sweetest Day!  Just leave me a comment here if you’d like one of these paintings and I’ll be in touch with details.

What in the World Has David Been Doing All Summer?

Summer is officially over and I know some of my art fans have been wondering what I’ve been up to since I haven’t been posting much new art around here.

Well, I’d like to introduce you to my latest, creative endeavor… Chop Shop Wear! Yes – I’ve taken my creative eye and applied it to a fashion idea that I’ve been percolating on for awhile. In a nutshell, Chop Shop Wear is a fashion “chop shop” where we acquire previously-owned men’s luxury-brand shirts and chop shop them (cut them up), re-purposing the material to make pockets for one-of-a-kind pocket shirts.

Some of you know that I’m most comfortable in shorts and tee shirts all year long. But, I also love me some luxurious, designer shirts, especially when I can buy previously-owned ones for a few dollars rather than spend hundreds for a new shirt. Case in point – I’ve had a long-sleeve Versace shirt in my closet for years that I purchased at a thrift store for $5. With a bit of research, I discovered that this shirt originally retailed for over $400! But, I rarely wore it until I started thinking about how to re-use the cool fabric on something I’d wear all the time – like a tee or polo shirt. How about cutting up my $400 Versace shirt and re-using the fabric to make pockets for some fun pocket tee shirts. Or pocket polo shirts. Or hoodies!

Chop Shop Wear - One-of-a-Kind Pocket Shirts!
Chop Shop Wear – One-of-a-Kind Pocket Shirts!

Fast forward through the summer… learning to sew, buying my first sewing machine, figuring out how to creatively “chop shop” luxury shirts and making pockets from the material, developing and testing prototype shirts, creating an initial Chop Shop Wear brand and logo… and officially launching Chop Shop Wear!

Whew! I invite you to check it all out – I’ve created an online store — www.chopshopwear.com — and stocked it with lots of great pockets to choose from. And just for being a blog reader of mine, please feel free to use a special savings code, “ChopFriend” at checkout to save 25% off your entire first order!

And that, my friends, is what I was up to this summer!

Four Seasons of Trees… Heading Off to Minnesota

I’ve been working on a commercial office space project for awhile now and have just finished a set of my Four Seasons of Trees fine art reproductions! This project was a set of custom fine art prints on canvas – each is 14″ x 36″, stretched on 1.5″ deep gallery-wrap stretcher bars and finished by hand with my signature metallic highlights. I think this set will look really great in the office they’re heading to in Minnesota!

Be sure to contact me to discuss creating a custom set just for your home or office!

Two New Red Paintings Inspired by the Western Sky

There are some days when I happen to look up, just at the right time, to the Western sky and see red. These are two new Red paintings I just completed inspired by that moment I see red. These are also unique since I mounted them on three-inch-deep gallery wrapped canvases for a rather dramatic presentation.
Got a great spot for these in your home or office? Let me know if you’d like to add one or both to your collection!
