"Graphic Arts' > "Paintings"

You could never imagine whom you might meet in the “Golden City!” Born in Hollywood, my family relocated to Beverly Hills in 1956. Shortly afterwards I started sketching and oil painting. In 1970 before the premier releasing of my art, I met my first client and sold him this two-piece diptych painting in a supermarket parking lot adjacent to the famous Sunset strip. After the sale was completed I gave him my phone number for contacting me in the future. He called that week and invited me to meet him at a café. His ulterior motive was more than just a social visit. He bluntly offered me $10,000 to fly in his jet to South America and return with a large quantity of cocaine. Shocked by his proposal, I declined his offer and explained that I had to be at work on the TV series “Dragnet.” At that time I had just started working for Jack Webb, the producer. It was a quick response that put up caution flags in the conversation. After recently returning home from the Navy I became fond of my freedom once again and I did not wish to sleep in another bunk bed or wait in line for my meals, possibly in PRISON! It would have been like jumping from one frying pan into another. I dodged that bullet even though the pay at Dragnet was much less, the alternative had a safer reward. Webb was a great employer. He allowed me to sketch while we worked. Vesco became a legend after that brief encounter. Even though the painting was initially created prematurely to Vesco's amusing business proposal and art transaction, "My Crazy Life", coincidentally came and aptly described the same type of situation at the same precise period of time.

“My Crazy Life” was a prognosticated illustration. The top analyzing painting titled The Reasoning Of Decisions juxtaposed by the bottom painting titled, Innovations At The Beginning Of Life symbolized by the egg shaped image, are unpredictable ideas and imaginations of the future. The backgrounds included in both sections represent all of our involvement and experiences that prevail.
