Toy Story Oz

I’ve always noticed a connection to Buzz & Woody to The Tin Man & Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz. I thought it would be fun to do a little something based on that. This was painted on a wooden panel to give it a different look. Not sure if it’s a direction I want to go in with all pieces but it felt good for this one. It was a good time nerding out with some buddies on Facebook on what to call this painting. Honorable mention for a title also was ” Surrender Jessie “. Maybe I will add it in cloud writing like it was written by the Wicked Witch’s broom. Thoughts?

Discuss 😉


This was my first painting that I sold. I painted it while at CSUF, like most of my older pieces. I really miss having those 6 hour studio classes everyday. I was cranking out paintings like crazy. The model was based from a pose in Maxim Magazine, some hotty that stood out to me. The original was sold to an awesome guy who put it up at his store in the Arty area of Long Beach. I don’t think they are in business any more. But when I sell a piece I make sure to get a high res picture of it, so I can reproduce it whenever. I’d still like to show it when I have another Gallery, it’s one of my favorites.
