Ready to Hang

My aunt once yelled at my cousins, as she put them to bed: "I don't want to hear a peep out of you!" To which they replied Peep. Peep. My aunt died recently, and I was thinking of her, and that night, and painted this as my homage to a wonderful woman, and my misbehaving cousins.

This painting is acrylic on deep-profile canvas, wired and ready to hang.

I'm a child of New England in the 60's. I grew up in Boston, and spent my summers at my grandfather's house on Cape Cod or on my dad's boat on Nantucket. I have such fond memories of that era, and I love the aesthetic and innocence of the 60's. I tend to paint imagines from my memory, which give my paintings a somewhat nostalgic feeling, while also being very modern.

I was born and raised in Boston.    I moved to Chicago after college, and worked at Leo Burnett, one of the largest ad agencies in the world.  I left Burnett to get an MBA at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business.  After getting my MBA, I moved to NYC and became the Director of Retail Marketing and Advertising for Polo Ralph Lauren.  I loved Polo and NYC, but was eager to explore a different creative outlet, so I moved to Nashville to write country music.  I had a bunch of songs recorded, but I realized that my creative interest was in the visual arts, so I stopped writing to focus on painting.  My art is now sold in galleries around the country, has been seen decorating the sets of many tv shows -- including Nashville! -- and has been reprinted on items such as wrapping paper, wallpaper, greeting cards, etc. I’ve also created LaLa Land by Brian Nash, a line of American-made pajamas and other apparel.  LaLa Land combines my interest in fashion and painting. Thank you. Brian
