Winter 2009/2010 paintings of Erie Shore

Three Paintings created winter 2009/2010. The first painting is Edgewater States park loan Weeping Willow. It is a favorite of mine to paint standing alone on the point. The last two paintings are views of Lake Erie's waves off Lakewood Park Ohio.

I do portraits

I like to work in pen, and ink when doing portraits. It saves time, and money for the customer. I could work in color, but it's more labor intensive.

More paintings to click on.

More paintings to enter this year. I have not been updating much. The first painting is of Lakewood Park in the winter. The second painting is of a surf spot on Lake Erie. Their was a day a few years ago when a hurricane from the Atlantic blew into the lake, and kicked up some of the glassiest waves. The wind was out of the west 40 knots, and wrapped around the point. This is more from my memory then reality. The Last painting is of the willows at Edgewater Park in the spring. I enjoy the surfing in the cove here on a North East.

Subs and Suds

I painted two more paintings for Subs and Suds in South Carolina.
Carolina Forest Plaza II 4006 Postal Way 100 ft. North of Carolina Forest Post Offices.
The sister of the owner has been giving the paintings as gifts to her brother. The Dragon was his hometowns football teams mascot. The shop is close to the beach, and Jenn wanted to depict some of the activities done in the area in the paintings using the mascot. The Happy Dragon.

Jenn's husband Scott is working on film about Lake Erie surfers called Out Of Place. Check out his blog.

Steamy Water

This is a surf spot on the west side of Cleveland on another cold winter day. Sean F., and Vince P. were out that day catching waves on a strong NNE. I do not remeber who the third surfer was.

Edgewater Skyline

I painted this in a afternoon spent with Jamie, and Scott. My wife showed it at her place of work, and one of her customers saw it. It reminded her of her youth. She used to picnic there with her parents. She is now in her golden years. It brought a tear to eye.

Mongo's World online shop

I started an online T-shirt shop to sell my designs. Most of the designs are surf related. I’ve tried to give them a retro feel of the days of hot rods, beach boys, and Big Daddy Roth. I plan on making designs for the Great Lakes, and Ocean surfers. I will eventually branch out into skateboarding and white water kayaking. Check it out all you cool cats before it’s too late!
When you are there click on my Mongo's World logo at the top of the page to go to the next page. Many different designs to choose from.
