sedefendendo had inquired if my Dad has a site - well yesireee.. This is a local gallery where he shows his work. His works are done with acrylics and creates texture as well (he uses sponges to apply the paint - often he will cut a stencil of the drawing, then sponge apply paint w/the stencil) - The paintings are 3dimensional as well and often incorporating pieces of glass or mirror.
Also - on our family website http://pittsburghscotts.gsshosting.100megs8.com
Under photos you can see "Joe's paintings"
& how sad, to realize I've always been a dorky fangirl., well sort of. I actually had this Tigerbeat magazine featured in the link- and I hate to admit, for some time had a poster of Donny Osmond on my wall (well hey, we were pretty limited then.. Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy, Donny Osmond or Michael Jackson) -
We didn't have the internet then, so I never came across any Osmond slash *dies at that though* .. oh wait, I'll burn in hell forever now - The Mormon Tabernacle Choir may hunt me down yet
Wow those paintings are all so vibrant...I'm quite jealous. ^^;
Ok.. I'll get my coat *leaves quietly*
I love the painting of your dad ^___^
I specially like the one of the "Do not open", I don't know why ^^ looks very cool.

Re: ^_^ cool painting
I agree! "Do not open" was my favorite of this series --
it's the curiousity of what's inside, for me, that really does it!
i know how much work goes into one of those -- i had an "artistic representation" project for the book Invisible Man; I loved your dad's artwork that I tried to emulate it (it fits the feeling of the book perfectly~!)
alas, I failed, and I wrote an alternate essay instead.
mmm i lurve dorkiness (hyde=king dork)
oh my god, there might have been some pics from fan mags on my dorky ass wall too! hahahhahaha donny, i think i remember, very toothy!
i am just overwhelmed by the links you shared and the pics, i was absolutely still and looked at that butterfly for a good twenty minutes, it really really spoke to me.............i am an emotional butterfly person, directly related to their life cycle, their beauty, their very short presence. k, enough so i dont have to blow my nose again. thank you thank you thank you..........
I like your Dad's work..really nice style.
