The World of Dan Green, Part 1

Before Father’s day ends (in about five minutes), I’d like to show you some of my father’s work. It was terribly difficult to choose images to put up, because there is much to choose from and I love them all, but for now I’ll share some dramatic paintings, all from the 2000’s. All oil on board or canvas.

Here is the Bad Bunny. He is the first of a series and has proven to be a terrific model.

This painting almost met it’s end in the oven, where my father had placed it to hasten the drying of the paint. Unaware of the oven’s content,my mother turned it to a high temperature to bake cookies. Ah, the smell of burning turpentine! I’m only surprised this hasn’t happened more often at my parent’s house.

This painting hangs in my living room. Thank you, dad. One of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. XOX
