When The Going Gets Weird... a psychedelic oil enamel on foam board original painting by Richard Van Vliet. 24 x 30 oil enamel on foam board.

see full description & specifications

Richard Van Vliet came of age in the psychedelic sixties and early 1970's, infused with the spirit of the times, the music and the culture. Apart from drumming in his own band, he witnessed musical acts like Led Zeppelin, The Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, even The Beatles at Red Rocks! This work could easily have been the background for a poster or wall art of the day, an alien-like octopus or squid in a tan-green robe with white droplets for teeth, three eyed welding glass like eyes, and blue and white cosmic streaks showing outer-space or an separate reality like a weird trip from a Carlos Castaneda book or one of Hunter S. Thompson's drug fueled exploits like Ralph Steadman, fear and loathing in a depraved world of oddities. A piece befitting places like the Woody Creek Tavern, When The Going Gets Weird... the weird turn pro.
