Fred G. Sanford & The Giving Tree

"It's the Big One, Elizabeth! I'm comin' to see ya!" Acrylic, White-Out, & Ink on Board, 18" x 14"
"And the Tree Was Happy", Acrylic, White-Out, & Ink on Board, 18" x 14"
From this year's Famous Fictional show catalog:
Sanford and Son and The Giving Tree are moving works of art that I have enjoyed since I was a kid. I thought the junkyard and forest settings -- and the dominant personalities of Fred and the tree -- would make for interesting juxtapositions across the two paintings. I don't know if that happened, but I did have the Sanford & Son theme song running through my head the entire time I was painting. Rest in Peace, Redd Fox and Shel Silverstein.
