This is Bazooka Boy. He is 20″x16″ oil on canvas painting that has gotten a little bit of acclaim in his short life. This acclaim, in my dreams, was going to skyrocket me into the world of Any Warhol and Picasso. It has not turned out to be the case. HMMM, I am confused….. The painting got rave reviews at it s first art critique by a well known artist who< I find awesome, said her should be able to compete in international competitions and win. ( I still am not sure what that really means but it gives me hope.) Second bazooka Boy won best in show at the Calgary Creative Arts Guild show in the fall of 2017. This was no was no easy feet as the club has some magnificent Awe inspiring artists,who I am humbled and privileged to know. Then 3rd Bazooka Boy won entry into the Surrey 2018 Jury art exhibition and won 3rd place in his oil on canvas category.
Now I know what you are all thinking, Wow that’s amazing it must be hanging on some great art collectors wall by now. Well…. Nope he is still just hanging on the Surrey art gallery wall making people chat and shake their head at what this crazy artist was thinking. I am not sure what to do next with this fabulous piece of art but when I do figure it out I am sure it will be something from one of these great art marketing books that I insist on reading everyday.
