Jerry and I had some exciting news. The Hawaii 5-0 prop folks bought three of our paintings to use on the show. They “discovered” us in the Louis Pohl Gallery and selected three watercolors, two of Jerry’s and one of mine. Here are the two Jerry Mayfield paintings they selected:
Unfortunately, I do not have a photo of my painting that they bought. I should know better! I should always photograph a painting before putting it up for sale. This is not the first time I have made this mistake. When will I ever learn? Anyway, it was a painting of a leek, one of my vegetable series. Here is a beet painting from the same series, to give you an idea of what it looks like:
My mother was so funny. When I told her, she said, “Oh, my, now we’re all going to be sitting on the edge of our couches, watching for your paintings instead of watching the actors.”
Well, no, I wouldn’t do that. There’s a strong possibility that they will just be art on someone’s wall in a scene that passes in a millisecond – or could end up on the cutting room floor, so to speak. Anyway, it’s fun to think of our work in the hit show.
