I do commission work. If you’ve got something in mind, need something big, different from my norm, etc., I will take on the job. You’ll notice that my art generally is in the 16×20 or 18×24 range. This is due to storage issues. I’ve done two bigger works, each at 30-something by forty-something (below), andContinue reading “Let’s Talk Commissions”

Legacy of the Viking
This #painting was inspired by my fascination with #Viking culture. The whole concept of living day to day not knowing whether it was going to be your last seems so much more exciting than being assured you are getting up today, tomorrow, and the next day, with the firm realiziation that you will be doingContinue reading “Legacy of the Viking”
A warm summer night, looking at a street light through the trees.
I’m being told that, as an artist, I need to explain my work and process more. This bit of advice comes from a source that I came across when trying to figure out how to break into the big leagues of the art world – besides spending tens of thousands on a BFA/MFA which willContinue reading “Winter Odium”
Art for the Homeless
I’ve been doing random acts of kindness for the homeless for a while now, 2-3 lunches instead of just mine, coffee for my man hanging in Starbucks to keep warm, a buck or two here and there… I’m going to say this up front, I’m not tooting my own horn. I firmly believe that inContinue reading “Art for the Homeless”
Squareset is an abstract representation of a sunset using strictly horizontal strokes (kind of a thing I’m developing). This is mostly a test set for color, but I think it stands on it’s own. I don’t know if no-impressionism is a ‘thing’; if not, I’ll plant that flag. If you like it, let me knowContinue reading “Squareset”
Flight of the Raven
My first finger-painting since the third grade. I’ve always wondered how effective it would be. The answer? For a guy with big fingers, I can’t get any detail. I’m going back to brushes for the next one, but it was fun to ‘roll around in the mud’, if you will, and stretch my wings. AsContinue reading “Flight of the Raven”
An abstract painting within the confines of short horizontal strokes.
This started as something else, then I had the idea to use crushed glass, self-leveling clear gel, other gels, and acrylic paint on canvas board. It really just came together as a pond with a Koi fish inside. Top Down View I started with a base of deeper color, then laid the crushed glass, andContinue reading “Being Koi”
Earlier, I was reading a book on Otto Dix and his experiences in the First World War. I had a doodle I’d started yesterday with swirls of red. I looked at it after reading the book, and saw a man in desperate fear within the swirls. I tried to turn what I saw into whatContinue reading “Lost Souls”
I went ahead and signed this one because I don’t know when, if ever, I’ll get back to it. It’s a nature piece, dealing with the mystical forces surrounding the entity that is Mother Nature, both from a pagan and artistic perspective. She’s never really portrayed as a creature one wants to be around; rather,Continue reading “Earth Mother”
I originally was going to use this as a background for a Halloween painting. Halloween has come and gone, and so I decided to let it stand on its own. Most people don’t appreciate the woods, but every time I’m in nature, I feel that connection between man and the environment. So, while the paintingContinue reading “The Forest”
