Peter Max… Art Work

Hello everyone!!!! Tomorrow I’ll be officially back posting again. I wanted to share this before that and see what you guys think of it. To have an actual piece of artwork by Peter Max is something I still can’t believe.

I was shocked when I received this painting.

A friend of the family told me not long ago that she wanted to give me a Peter Max painting. I thought she meant a copy of course and I said I would be happy to take it. Peter Max is one of my favorite artists…and one of the best pop art artists in the world.

Well, she took it out of her car and I got a big surprise. It’s an original piece of artwork that she bought from Peter Max himself a long time ago in Texas where he had a booth setup. She knows I like pop art from the 60s and 70s and this is right up my alley.

Plus by the way, he signed it “Max” It fits me perfectly. I could NOT get a good picture of it because of the glare on the glass. I am not brave enough to take it out of the picture frame at this point.

If you don’t know who Peter Max is…look him up and his artwork. I like a lot of his paintings more than Warhol. I hope one day to get a better picture of it.

Anyway…Thank you Kelly!!!!


Paintings and Artists that I like

Painting is something I could never do. I would be lucky to paint stick figures. Like music, it is a great form of expression. If I were an artist I would do pop art paintings and…black light poster art… I would be a very poor artist because the demand for those styles in 2018 would be close to non existent to say the least.

I do get into Art a bit. I’m not an expert nor will I ever be…I like what I like….A friend I have is a great artist and over the years I’ve learned things from him. The art styles that I like the most are Pop Art, Expressionism, and Surrealism… Some of the artists I like are Andy Warhol, Peter Max, Edvard Munch and Salvador Dali. I cannot tell you about their technical skills…which yes they all had but it was the feel or soul they all  had in their paintings. The way Warhol could make some simple advertisement into art. The way Peter Max can take you places by just looking at his work. Salvador Dali taking you places where you may not want to go but enjoy it all the same.

I also like some vintage commercial art. The art that hung in business offices across the land. A company call Marushka had many that I liked. Art for mass consumption is looked down upon at times but there are many prints that I like from them in the 70s and 80s. Below is one of them


I also like black light and some think it’s lowbrow but I don’t care. What imaginations artists had when they painted them…sober or otherwise.


I can also say that my taste in art is the same as in music…having feeling or soul is the reason I never got into progressive rock bands….I could care less if you know every chord in the book and are technically advanced…if music doesn’t have soul…I want nothing to do with it. Just because you can play fast or do guitar gymnastics doesn’t mean anything without soul. Some music I do think is art. A Day in the Life, Bohemian Rhapsody, Overnight Sensation and others.
