Upon further inspection

After receiving a few messages saying that I didn't give 2 of my pieces enough photo time and recognition I have gone back and shot photos.  The piece on the top is my most recent large scale painting. I used silver leaf and acrylic paint to achieve a certain texture. The piece on the bottom was one of the first paintings from my abstract series from last year in the set. It's the largest of the group 4ftx5ft. There are about 10 layers of paint some of which can only be seen in person. I have enjoyed my abstract painting reign and am currently pursuing art such as paperweights, watercolors, and pottery.  I would post photos but I am waiting for a certain level of completion before documentation.


These are a few paintings I made last year, using the same techniques of my abstract expressive paint work mixed with layering and inverted colors. The four at the top were made first, however the piece on the bottom aptly named "Old Glory" was the final in the series.

In the constant pursuit of expression and improvement.. Hopefully the road to success is short but scenic.... however thats never the case... ultimately life is full of compromises some of which will involve your  artistic expression.... heres hoping it doesn't come to that!

I've continued working with Acrylics and pushing the boundaries of texture. I personally believe that a painting should have ample amounts of texture to characterize the quality of the paint and the expressiveness of the artist who wields such mediums.

I recently completed a large scale painting entitled "Sidewinder" I was inspired by the colors of the southwest, as well as Aerial Photography. Painting was primarily made using the palette knife. I focused on building texture.  Above are some photos showing my progression with the peice.

In the art world you must leave no stone unturned. Explore all your options and exploit as many opportunities as possible, if you see an opening for something new and original-- or even unique do it and ask questions later.

I've been on a abstract expressionist stint for a while and Ive developed my own personal style for it. Ive been working primarily large in size. The colors reflect clearly on my moods and personal aesthetics. I've had people ask me how much the cost for these guys are, size and commission, if your interested you can send me an email. NOTE: 1,2, 3 are currently spoken for.
