Papa Martini 2019

Papa Martini© brand was born on 1/1/2019.

After several years of my daughter using Gin Martini, I decided to form this new brand to show and sell my art.

Take the time now to bookmark this page, share it, and buy my art while it is still very affordable.

Thank you for stopping by.

I create for you.

With Love.

Dear Papa Martini

Let's keep in touch.

Latest Artist's Bio

What I think about me
About me: I am a 38 years married, father, minister, Vietnam Era US Army Veteran, a York-a-rican Texan, triple bypass survivor, conservative, Christian. I celebrated my 66th birthday in December. Izzy, my wife, and I have two grown children and one child waiting for us in Heaven. Yes, that is another story about which to write at some future date. I draw, doodle, sketch, and paint. I remember that in 7th grade, I took a mechanical drawing class. I remember drawing the basic shapes with and without templates. It fascinated me.

My current painting life began at Houston Community College in Spring 2007. My job with Shell Oil had been outsourced. I knew that I needed to get more credits towards a Bachelor’s degree so I enrolled for classes. I wanted to do something other than the business courses so I signed up for Painting 101. Michael Golden, my art teacher, was so supportive. He had a way of finding the good in any piece, person, and situation. This allowed me the freedom to express myself on canvas and learn techniques. This leads up to and through the October 2008 bypass surgery. August 2009, I signed up for Painting 2 at HCC with Laura Lark. We had some moderate to severe differences of art opinion, but I learned more about techniques and criticism than I expected. And so I painted. May 2010. My 3 foot by 4 foot painting, Diversity, was selected to hang in Houston’s City Hall Annex. Currently, my art seems to me to be mostly abstract. My art is for sale as I make my way through my sixties with the probability of never being employed again. You can find me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/papamartiniart) and Twitter (@papa_martini) and Instagram ( @papa_martini). Thank you. I enjoy meeting my collectors.

Make every moment count.

Peace and Blessings!

For historical purposes remember, I was able to get rid of the INDIVIDUAL MANDATE, the most unpopular and expensive part of ObamaCare. You are no longer forced to pay a fortune for the “privilege” of NOT getting bad healthcare. This ended ObamaCare as we knew it. Thank you!

My President, @realDonaldTrump, wanted all of you to know there was a big rally in WASHINTON DC on 1/6/21. Twitter deleted his message. So... I am passing this on for him. My hopes? You will do the same by making 2 clicks to retweet this with your own message of support.

I don't understand this little game that the media is playing about Biden being President when more than half of America knows that he cheated and is a criminal.

Our Republican Senate just missed the opportunity to get rid of Section 230, which gives unlimited power to Big Tech companies. Pathetic!!! Now they want to give people ravaged by the China Virus $600, rather than the $2000 which they so desperately need. Not fair, or smart!

Accepted to Hardy & NanCe

February Mash Up show

This is Mashed Memory.

It happened over the course of several weeks. There was a show coming up at the Hardy & Nance studios that I wanted to participate in, but I did not have anything ready to submit. What does Mash Up mean to you? After attending the Tiny Art show at the Texas Art Asylum, and visiting with a fellow artist, I was convinced to submit something to the Mash Up. I worked on this piece everyday until it looked like this. Oh, wait. I may have added a small thing or two since these pictures were taken. Come to the show February 16th to see it live.

January 2019

10x10 Show at Hardy and Nance in Houston
Branches - $100

This 10x10 is created with Acrylics. Branches reaching out as a storm seems to be passing through. The Branches are not phased, not moved by the storm. But majestically hold there position and reach up in gratefulness.
The Sea - $100

This 10x10 is created with acrylics also. An abstract expression of The Sea as it rages somewhere in my imagination. There you go. This is glimpse into the soul of this artist. Although seemingly calm in color, the movement in the strokes exposes the complexities within.
Warrior - $100

This acrylics on 10x10 canvas can seem to express differing scenes. My main object here is The Warrior. Throughout the history of Mankind, the warrior has been the King's champion and major foe. This champion seems to be alone, fighting off his/her personal demons.
