My name is Wendell Rankin.  I love to paint.  If it has a paintable surface and stands still long enough, I'll try to paint it.  I've painted planes, cars, trucks, rocks, hats, and water towers. And there have been billboards, signs and score boards. But, I guess the single most object I have painted on is the Coleman cookstove.  The kind that competition Chili Cooks use for Chili Cookoffs.   On this site, I will attempt to share  my love for art.  Thanks for coming, enjoy your visit!

"Are You an Elvis Fan?"

Let me take you back to when Elvis bought his big plane.  Well, I got the job of painting the logo on the tail section "TCB" Taking Care of  Business and Lisa Marie on the sides.  We also were invited to go inside after the work was done.  It is now at Graceland and can be viewed just as we painted it .
