JET III Paintings

Re: Oil Paintings

Oil paintings may be done on linen, wood, or canvas. Hide glue is usually used to protect linen, or wood from the oils with several coats of special oil painting primer added on top. Another option for oil paintings are several coats of acrylic gesso. This is usually present where the oil is applied over a base of acrylic paint.

Re: Acrylic Paintings

Re: Watercolors - Watercolors are paints which are thinned by water and are generally utilized on paper.

A painting of a Dog

A Dog's Life - an oil painting by JET III, is 60" X 50" This large sized oil on linen has a long history... I originally found little Timmy "Mooshalay" at an ASPCA shelter in Brooklyn one day when he was just a puppy. He was found all alone on the rough streets, at such a young age, abandoned and afraid. They told he he was a Terrier Mix, and that he was like a "Heinz 57" with many varieties of dog all mixed together. I found he had a great deal of Grayhound, Golden Retriever and even some German Sheppard all mixed into the pot. In order to keep him I had to promise to bring him back and get him neutered. I never felt right about it, but kept my promise. He could run almost 30 miles per hour for an extended distance without tiring. He could run around Prospect Park at full gallop and was the only dog to ever escape out of a large kennel on Long Island, because he could jump straight up to an incredible height. He went over the fence without a problem and jumped right into the back of a customer's car seat. He was ready to go when caught.

We went to the Gateway National Seashore together as he grew up almost every day, it was where I was painting at that time. My Marine Park Series of paintings was done there in "Dead Horse Bay". He would wear a little blue suit to keep him warm and we would be there all day in the dead of winter. It might sound funny, but I taught him how to speak two things "Out and Food" and he got so good at it that friends used to laugh and say he should be on TV. In Brooklyn he had many friends that he romped and played with and he was a crime fighter and personally assisted in capturing many a late night thief breaking into cars in our neighborhood. This painting was begun in 1988 and was finished being painted shortly thereafter.On the way to an art show it blew off the roof of my painted Cadillac (due to poor packing) like a sail, knocking almost all the paint off on the highway. Amazingly the linen was still fine, even the oil primer was almost untouched and there was enough of the original painting left to see the design perfectly.

Sky Line

A Uniquely Framed Oil Painting

This is an oil painting on linen that has been framed in an interesting manner. The old barn/driftwood frame has been covered over fresh hardwood poplar lumber and incorporates elements from the forest floor which has been enclosed by plexiglass. The painting was painted on the edge of a cliff around 1993. It seems as if you are looking out a window or doorway through the edge of the forest. The skyline of Manhattan is visible from the top of the hilltop some 25 miles away. The plain of Bergen New Jersey is located below the mountain between the city and stretches out across the scene. The painting is 36" x 25" and framed it measures 38" square.
