Art and real estate have a ton in common: both are sold by brokers, have titles, and belong to someone who is not you. For a jack of both trades who wants to sell you one, check out
Steve at Century 21! Tom Roderick's paintings.
Self taught, Boulder-based Roderick originally picked up the brush while taking a break from his job in commercial real estate, and now full time-cranks realist acrylics whose subjects range from movie stars to rockers, himself a "closeted musician since Beatlemania", despite their success actually making crushed velvet shirts and tight pants more acceptable. Dudes'll fancy a series of The Big Lebowski portraits including Bridges enjoying a new Persian rug, and a triptych of The Dude, Walter, and Donny at the bowling alley; while his newest celeb portraits include mash-ups like George Clooney as if he were dropped into the The Andy Griffith Show, and The Three Stooges standing agape in front of a bikini-clad Marilyn Monroe, a sight even Curly won't be able to say "yuck" to. Musically, Tommy paints off archival photos (though takes license adding color to black & whites), rendering images like Hendrix smoking a cig at Ladyland, a shaggy Jerry Garcia strumming a tune, and Mick Jagger maraca-shaking in '65, as opposed to at 65, the age when he was just shaking.
If your apartment's already normally plenty full of dude, Roderick's also got a few Van Gogh-style, Colorado landscapes/landmarks, like Aspen at sunset, a snowy Continental Divide, and the marquee at the Boulder Theater -- a place that, like you, would be happy just to produce Rent.
