About the Artist

     Hello, I’m Wayne, “Jr.” if you are close family, or “Gonzo” if you are in the military.  I was an art major who became a Cobra attack helicopter pilot in the Marine Corps, hence the call-sign: Gonzo.  I know, I know, it’s not a common career path. 

After retiring from the Corps in 14' and 5 years teaching online, I became an airline pilot.  Hey, there was a pilot shortage!  

In 2020 the Coronavirus has hit everyone hard, including the airline industry, with very little flying during lockdown I decided to use my time productively and, after a 26 year break from painting watercolors, I  started painting again.  

Some friends and family asked if they could buy my artwork and suggested I sell prints.  So, here we are.  In short: I’m an artist, turned Marine, turned airline pilot, turned artist again.


The Process

The watercolor process starts with a rendering and sometimes a test painting.
A full detailed painting is then crafted, and printed onto quality cotton-finish stock.


Print Quality

Prints come on beautiful, white cotton finish, heavy card stock (118lb).


Print Sizes

Prints come in two sizes:
12"x18" and 8.5"x11"


Packed and shipped

Keep a lookout for your print.
It will arrive protected in plastic, reinforced between cardboard, and safely placed inside a stay-flat mailer.
