One of Rich Griendling's most recent projects is his Blue Jean Series. Many individuals, who have crossed paths with Griendling over the years, have made note that he always wears Wrangler blue jeans. Those comments began a train of thought in Griendling's mind as to how blue jeans could be used as a canvas to illustrate his various interests and milestones in his career. The idea resulted in the casting of a pair of Wranglers, making it possible to reproduce 12 pairs of identical jeans made of polyurathane foam. Each casting was then painted to illustrate Griendling's interests from super-realism sculpture to painting to his love of chocolate.
