Illuminated in the Dark 16 | Jul

I love how without any light at all, in a darkened room, this painting seems to glow. It’s gorgeous in its transitions throughout the day!

New Interview 12 | Jul

Hi All,

Here is the link to a recent interview I did with Execute Magazine
It was a enjoyable informal discussion on art, artist's perspectives (not
just my own), and the role of art in society.

There are a selection of newer works to view and a few shots of my studio.

A dark idol 06 | Jul

One more glaze layer and this new spooky painting will be complete. I
never know what's going on in these houses, but something to do with the
dark arts would be a good guess. "...silence lay steadily against the
wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.” -

Work In Progress 04 | Jul


This new 3-panel painting is in progress and about 70% done. Still tons to add and more fun to be had with vibrant colors and expressive marks. This piece is on plan to be in Charleston for the August exhibition, It’s Showtime!



I Grew Up Looking… 02 | Jul a reproduction of this painting as my mom made my dad sit through a traveling salesman’s vacuum cleaner presentation, and for doing so, they received that reproduction. It hung by their bed ever since I can remember and I used to stare at it all the time. One day as a family we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and while there, we walked into a room with paintings by John Constable. Pointing at one I declared, “That’s the person who painted your painting!” My dad may have raised an eyebrow and walked off, but my mom raised two and went to check the name tag. When the names matched back at home, she started looking at her under hip-high son a little differently, and always supported him in his artistic endeavors. So thank you Dad for sitting through an I’m sure very boring presentation. Thank you Mom for never seeing a painting of mine that you didn’t like. And thank you John Constable for painting phenomenal clouds and pastoral scenes that endlessly captured this artist’s young imagination. And if you ever have the chance to go to The National Gallery of London, drop by “The Hay Wain” and spend a little more time than you might otherwise. It is a fascinating scene.

WIP 01 | Jul

The scene is coming together.

Not only do I love this for its simplicity - but it seems to look good anywhere I place it! Matching any decor or mood. Fun!

Ephemera 27 | Jun

Ever notice how it's just after a storm, or just before some weather that
nature gets almost absurdly beautiful? I'm almost done with perhaps that
old foolish task of tacking a whack at imitating it with this painting.
