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. -

The University of Texas at Dallas has asked me to show a selection of 15 works this coming Saturday, April 26 from 7:00-10:00pm, at an event called Artistic Impressions of Management. All the work will be for sale and the proceeds will benefit the Jindal School’s art fund, which will be used to commission me and other contemporary artists to create works for the new building expansion. This collection is designed to provide a cultural experience for Jindal School students as they receive a world-class business education.

Jon Flaming Painting "Homecoming" in Ann Williams Home.

Recently, 360 West magazine did a feature article on my good friend Ann Williams who lives in Ft. Worth with her husband Mike. - Ann collects objects that speak to her and has an incredible gift for mixing texture and color. Here in the dining room, Ann selected my Homecoming painting from the Birdston Valley show as the focal point. -

John Wayne Family asks Jon Flaming to Create Brand & Art for 4th Annual John Wayne Film Festival

Last April I was invited by Sarah & Todd McCoy to a small, private lunch here in Dallas to discuss creating the art & branding for the 1st annual John Wayne Film Festival. - Attending the lunch were Marisa Wayne (John Wayne's daughter), Anita Swift (John Wayne's granddaughter), Barry Tubb (actor/director, responsible for creating the John Wayne Film Festival), David Hale Smith (book agent) & Steve Stodghill (Dallas lawyer/film buff). Sarah & Todd saw an article on my work in Cowboys & Indians magazine and recommended that I be involved with creating the identity for the festival. For the past several months I've been working with Ethan Wayne (John Wayne's son), Karl Post & Greg Graber with the John Wayne Cancer Foundation in California to create the specific pieces needed for the festival. - The new logo (below) was just launched. I am also creating several large-scale canvases to be auctioned off by Heritage Auctions to benefit the John Wayne Cancer Foundation. The festival takes place April 24-27. Thank you Sarah, Todd, Marisa, Anita, Ethan, Barry, David, Karl, Greg & Steve for trusting me with this cool project! -
