Jon Flaming Solo Exhibit at David Dike Fine Art this November

Earlier this year, I spent the day on a big oil rig in Pyote, Texas (west of Midland) with my friends Adam Fish (photographer) and Chris Mano (filmmaker). We were given access to the property by my good friend, David Arrington, who was very gracious to allow us to freely roam, ask questions and take photos. David's geologist was also very helpful in educating us on the basics of the industry. - The idea to create paintings based on the Texas oil industry has been on my mind for several years, and this November I will introduce a series of large scale paintings in a solo exhibit at David Dike Fine Art entitled Oil on Canvas - Paintings of the Texas Oil & Gas Industry. The show will open Thursday, November 13 and run through Saturday, December 6, 2014. More to come -

Recent Paintings

For the past 4 months I have been busy preparing new work for a show I'm having at David Dike Fine Art on Thursday, November 6 called "Oil on Canvas" (paintings dealing with the oil & gas industry in Texas). - For the past couple of weeks I have taken a break from the oil & gas paintings and have created some images that are less stylized and a bit more impressionistic. - Here are a few of those pieces. -
