Grateful Dead Birdhouses , complete list of available and unavailable titles

March 7th, 2014

Grateful Dead Birdhouses , complete list of available and unavailable titles

The amount of response for my line of custom made Grateful Dead Birdhouses has been staggering. I got started on it at the end of the Summer in 2011 so only a few were made to test the waters. Then, there didnt seem to be too many interested in birdhouses once the weather turned cold. But come Spring of 2012, interest picked back up, and all I needed to do was start DOIN em! At any given moment, I seem to be 5 or 6 houses behind on my commissioned list. Its been nice to feel a little in demand.
So now that the collection has grown, I found it was time to make a list for people to gander that consists of songs still available, and also the ones that have been already done. The song names on this list are every single song that the Grateful Dead has recorded and/or covered live. The song titles that begin with a capitol "X"have either been painted or have been reserved with a deposit.
To reserve your title simply go through the list and look for your special song. If you find its been taken, find another. I put a lot of time and heart into these and will be sure to create something special and unique just for you.
The list is in alphabetical order. To contact me about commissioning a birdhouse of your own, either email me at ArtYouGlad@yahoo.com , or contact me on facebook through my art page at www.facebook.com/KevinJCooperArtwork .

Lavender Buddha

April 10th, 2013

Lavender Buddha

Check out my newest painting, just finished late last night. This is "Lavender Buddha" featuring the Tibetan fashioned Buddha of Compassion with Tennessee Lavender in the foreground. It is acrylic on glass, at one time being an antique window. This window came out of a home just down the street from me. I found a stack of windows near a construction dumpster outside a vacant house being remodeled. Most of the windows were literally caked with a dark yellow nicotine stain. Glass and all. Im assuming this was about 20 years worth of cigarette smoke without even ONE window cleaning. I thought the windows might be useless and most likely stink like an ashtray (Ive displayed paintings in bars before and had to throw a few away) but after a bleach scrubbing with some hot water and a brush, they came out quite clean and new.
This piece is 30"X29" and is available for sale. It cannot be shipped, due to cost and fragility. Pickup or meetup can be arranged, and delivery is negotiable depending on your location. $200.00 . PayPal equipped.

Custom Made Grateful Dead Birdhouses

April 2nd, 2013

Custom Made Grateful Dead Birdhouses

Spring is finally glimpses of itself through the grey clouds and rainy skies! That means its time to start turning gardens, composting your coffee grounds, and thinking about what veggies to grow and torture the kids with at the dinner table all Summer long. Its also a good time to hook one of our feathered freinds outside and add a custom made Grateful Dead Birdhouse to your garden or patio.
Each custom made birdhouse is a testimony to a specific Grateful Dead Song. I study the song content via my GD Lyrical Bible "The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyric Book" , and illustrate each song lyrically on a 9"X9" lightweight Pinewood Birdhouse. I use several different style houses, purchased from a craft store. Each birdhouse, when completed, is treated with Spar Urethane for UV and Weather Protection. This makes the houses fully functional for outdoor use, but many people have chosen to keep them indoors as a display item given their personal value. Each BH is signed and numbered. No songs are recreated. For this, we can all be Grateful that The Dead wrote and covered such an extensive song catalog! There are literally thousands of songs to do!
How do you get a Birdhouse for yourself? Its easy. Just visit my Grateful Dead Birdhouse photo album on facebook . I have attached the URL to this blog update. Not on facebook? Its ok. Just send me an email with your requests and we can discuss YOUR special song. Let me give you two lists right now though. The first is a list of GDBH's that have been completed already The second is a list of songs that have been reserved by people Nationwide by giving a modest deposit. These songs are now also unavailable. See songs that you would like and feel like "all the good ones are taken"? Have no fear. There are more songs than you think to choose from. Simply Google (or Bing) "Complete list of performed Grateful Dead Songs" and you soon see an alphebetized list of songs that The Dead performed in their 30 year reign. Any of these songs can be illustrated. Any cover song, any instrumental jam. Anything. It can be done.
So here are the lists:
Grateful Dead Birdhouse #
1) Cold Rain & Snow 8)Crazy Fingers
2) Jack Straw 9) Sugaree
3) Little Red Rooster 10) Tangled up in Blue
4) Row Jimmy 11) Friend of the Devil
5)Viola Lee Blues 12) Sugar Magnolia
6) Franklin's tower 13) Tons of Steel
7) Brown Eyed Women 14) The Monkey & the Engineer
8) Crazy Fingers
9) Sugaree
10) tangled up in Blue
11) Friend of the Devil
12) Sugar magnolia
13) Tons of Steel
14 The Monkey and the Engineer
Heres a list of Birdhouses in production NOW and reserved:
Box of Rain
Scarlet Begonias
Tennessee Jed
Dire Wolf
Slipknot
China Cat Sunflower
Estimated Prophet
Playin in the Band
Bird Song (Cant believe it took so long for that one to get snatched up!)

PRICING? Very important, I know. As with much of my art, I try to price these on my $20.00/hr payrate. This usually means, i end up working too long for my wages. But I really try to keep these affordable. Most of them come to around $100.00. A birdhouse with less art and detail like "Cold Rain & Snow" (my very first one) was less, around $80.00. But by the time I got to the next one (Jack Straw), I was pouring much more detail into them and this one came upwards of $130.00. I can work with your budget. Just express your concerns with me.

Shamrock Shakedown Prints Available and Apparel to benefit Grateful Heads Charity

February 9th, 2013

Shamrock Shakedown Prints Available and Apparel to benefit Grateful Heads Charity

"Shamrock Shakedown" is a design that utilizes our dancin' friend featured on the cover art of The Grateful Dead's "Shakedown Street" album from the 70's. As any Deadhead can tell ya, we LOVE any excuse to wear a Stealie. So Ive decided to create a Stealie for St Patrick's Day. It is available on prints and greeting cards here on my website. Lots of sizes available. Even cool canvas and metal prints.
This design is even available on apparel! But not through this site (Fine Art America). I have provided a web link to redbubble.com where the apparel is available on adult sizes of T-shirts, V-necks, Baseball Tees, Gurlie Cut shirts, Long Sleeves, and two kinds of Hoodies (both zip up and pull over). Infant, toddler and kids sizes are also available. The print is available in many colors, but it looks more appropriate and festive on Green. Yes, I said Festive. ;)
The best part of purchasing apparel is that a portion of proceeds goes to a great charity called "Grateful Heads" which makes and distributes tie dye hats and bandannas for kids and adults who have lost their hair to chemotherapy treatment.

Here is the link to purchase "Shamrock Shakedown" on Prints and Greeting Cards: http://3-kevin-cooper.artistwebsites.com/featured/shamrock-shakedown-kevin-j-cooper-artwork.html

Here is the link to purchase it on apparel and help support Grateful Heads: http://www.redbubble.com/people/dharmadog215/works/9956656-shamrock-shakedown

Broken Arrow

February 5th, 2013

Broken Arrow

February 1st has brought me an unforseen relocation. I'm taking a retreat, going back to basics, building from square one, or as Mark Sandman once said, "Starting over from scratch". Back in November, my art studio as some of you may know, was looted, destroyed and ransacked. Ove 50 works of art are gone. All my materials, gone. Lighting, paint, furniture, tools, even the art that my little daughter has made me over the years is all gone. It was quite a blow. But there has been plenty of time to greive. I decided my next course of action would be to take my photos that Ive collected over the years and turn them into prints. Thats what led to this fine site.
But now that Im in a space that I can paint, Im going to be getting back to the messy stuff soon enough. Paint and materials will be bought a little at a time. So for now, Im still hitting the Vellum paper hard, squeezing out Grateful Dead art that suits the Season, turning it into prints, clothing (www.redbubble.com/people/dharmadog215) and stickers. But I needed to take a break from that for one project that was a commission idea for a nice Mama up North in Rochester NY. She requested a "Broken Arrow" theme Grateful Dead piece to commemorate a soon to be marriage with her Love. Its their favorite song, and its been a project that was on my mind anyway. The concept almost made it as a Valentine's card design. This piece will not become prints or clothing. So Im glad I have a photo of the original to share with you all.
You cant really tell from the photo. but I used metallic pencils and ink in parts of it, and it makes it really shimmer. I just received confirmation that she loves it. I hope all of you do as well.
In other news, I will be participating in some First Friday events int he coming couple of months, so stay tuned to see where I will be sellign some art, and which pieces it will be. There will be some music events as well. Since we're on the subject, its time you know that Summer is closer than ya think. Snow on the ground? It will be ggone in NO TIME. Its time to pick what Summer Festivals you are hitting. We are getting our calendars together now for Spring>Fall travels. Stay tuned!
