Magical Munch

The Edvard Munch exhibit “Edvard Munch: Between The Clock And The Bed” at the Met Breur is fantastic. Runs though February 4th if you’re in the area. 

My terrible photography does to do his exquisite painting “Ashes” justice.

Big Thumbs Up To The Holidays

"Thumbs Up” was a commission to be ready for the holidays from an amazing couple. It was my desire to have the painting represent freedom, love and adventure as I felt this is what represents the two of them. Here’s wishing a big Thumps Up for Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to everyone

Aliens Welcome Here

For anyone in the South Florida area, you can go see "Aliens Having Fun In NYC" at the Marco Island Center for the Arts where it's hanging in their Gift Gallery. I think these aliens are illegal but they look nice and friendly to me. The Marco Island Center for the Arts is located at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island, Florida.

Easy Come Easy Go

I was all excited because I was offered a commission to do three murals for three walls from a wonderful and prestigious organization. We met in person and discussed what they wanted and I instantly had all these ideas and visions for their walls. They then gave me their floor-plan and the dimensions of the walls. Everything was looking good and falling in place. But, and this is the big but, when I said I could paint them in January, they said they needed them painted in December. Unfortunately, I can’t do them in December due to other commitments. So disappointed because I really wanted to do them but such is life. Oh well. Easy come, easy go. I do realize this is a first world problem.

Ecuador Found The Perfect Home

2017 World Rowing Championships

Roy and I at the 2017 World Rowing Championships in front of my billboard for Ecuador. Big thanks to Embracing Our Differences, Benderson Development and the 2017 World Rowing Championships for inviting me to this fabulous event. And the other billboards for the different countries are amazing.


Good Luck To Ecuador

t was very exciting to be requested to do a painting representing Ecuador in the 2017 World Rowing Championships which takes place in Sarasota from September 24 through October 1st. An image of my painting is going to be made into a billboard to be displayed during this event in which 68 countries are taking part. The background of the painting is in the colors of the national flag of Ecuador: yellow, blue and red. These colors also run throughout the painting which is done in a traditional Ecuadorian folk art style mixed with my own style (whatever that is). Ecuador has four distinct regions: the Andes, the Amazon, the Pacific Coast and the Galapagos Islands. Elements from each region are incorporated.

Michael H. Hanson Does It Again

I can’t get over how Michael so beautifully conveys what I’m trying to paint.
