Steve Scott Space Scout



Steve Scott Space Scout, 24 x 48,  oil on linen, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Steve Scott Space Scout. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery.

Space Exploration. It was a busy time in the 1950's and our pop culture reflected it.

1952 -- Two Capuchin monkeys, Pat and Mike, and a pair of mice successfully recovered following a flight to 36 miles launched from Holloman Air Force Base.

 In this game Commander Steve Scott assigns his young Space Scouts exciting missions into outer space. The players  scout the universe, report on conditions, maintain outpost and police the planets.

The players must execute the orders as outlined on their Interplanetary Assignment Cards in addition to instructions on the Rocket Speed Indicator. The first player to complete his mission is the winner of the game.

The Mouse

The Mouse, 24" x 24", oil on canvas

This is a detail of my painting  The Mouse. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show Opening May 16.

This Mickey Mouse card game was manufactured around 1946 and was included in a 'six pack' of other card games. The box measures 2.75" x 1.875".

I love the old yellowed tape and the beat up edges. Mickey Doesn't mind. He just keeps on smiling. Did you know that Mickey Mouse had his 86th birthday in 2014?

This tin wind up toy represents one of the crows from the 1941 Disney animated film Dumbo.The toy was produced eight years after the film's release to correspond with its 1949 re-release. It was produced in Japan, but under the Marx Toys.

This vintage toy is one of my favorites and has a place of honor on my desk next to my easel.

Batman Puzzle


Batman Puzzle, 36 x 30, oil on linen, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Batman Puzzle. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

Basic puzzle:  pieces are intended to be put together in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.

British engraver and mapmaker, John Spilsbury, created the first jigsaw puzzle in 1700 when he mounted a map on a sheet of wood which he then sawed around each individual country.  Spilsbury used his product to aid in teaching geography.

My Batman Puzzle was manufactured by Milton Bradley in 1966.

The Batman Cookies (also a puzzle since they are pieces put together in a logical way) were baked by me last week.
