The Rock-itt : January 2012
1986 (Oil on panel): This painting was owned by Mr Stewart resulting in a friendship between Robert and the great actor for the last decade of Jimmy’s life. Robert was invited a number of times to his home and they had many memorable discussions about his films, his family, and the painting, which hung in his living room. 1986 (oil on mounted paper): After painting the portrait of Michael Jackson in '84, he became a fan of Robert’s work and commissioned him to create a painting to be used as the design for his personal stationery. At the same time he was completing work on his Neverland Ranch and decided to use the boy-in-the-moon section of the painting as the ranch's logo. Eventually that logo was used on everything at the ranch, including the entrance, the trains, the station lawn, ice cream carts, tee shirts, hats, balloons, welcome mats, soap, towels, and even trash bins! 1988 (Oil on panel): A Broadway production, "Elvis-An American Musical", was having its trial run at the Las Vegas Hilton, the very venue in which the King performed hundreds of shows. Robert was commissioned to create the painting that would be used in all advertising for the musical from programs to merchandise to billboards. The Presley family sanctioned the painting and Robert was invited to Vegas to see the show, which was a wonderful and memorable experience for Robert.
