The first offering of palette gremlins has arrived in our shop, eight framed and ready to hang pieces from Michael’s 2016 online gallery project LEFTOVERS & PALETTE GREMLINS. You won’t find a better opportunity to own a Whelan original at such a great price!
Also new in our shop is a reproduction of Michael’s latest gallery work IN A WORLD OF HER OWN, which features elements of both his FADED STAR and LUMEN series. The painting will be featured at Tree’s Place in Orleans, MA starting on August 13 in a show with Michael Mariano entitled KINDRED SPIRITS, ARTISTIC SOULS.
PLEASE NOTE: We have been experiencing difficulty with our webhosting today. Apparently some of the gremlins escaped and have been tinkering with our server. We hope to have the issues resolved, but if you continue to have problems accessing our shop please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always happy to coordinate sales offline.Continue Reading

Thanks Everyone for following my numbers adventure on Facebook all last year. It was a challenge – and a blast – for me to come up with a number each day!
For 2016, I’m presenting a once a week look at my “Leftovers” and “Palette Gremlins,” which you’ll see in the gallery below.
Leftovers are little spur-of-the-moment doodles or sketches created from paint left over from a work in progress. Most of these quickies end up in the trash, but some are kind of cool on their own and others have lead to full scale paintings.Continue Reading
Many years ago in a galaxy far, far away I was faced with painting works to use as portfolio pieces, hoping to secure a commission from a national magazine like Time. Being an early and enthusiastic fan of David Bowie, I decided it was a good opportunity to combine my interests in SF and his music in one piece.
In the end, I believe it never was used for a publication, but I don’t regret taking the time to create it. (Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn that he was cast as the lead in the film THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH!)
We are all diminished by the loss of this singular and uncompromising artist. Fly on forever, Major Tom.Continue Reading
