Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.

I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.

At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.

Not all of it is pretty.

2013 ART-O-MATIC 419 Toledo Ohio


Every two years in Toledo Ohio, the city puts on an art show for the residents.
The show runs on the weekends for three weekends in a row, with live music and all the usual things that you would find at an event like this.
Above are my submissions for the show, there's four in all,  minus one, I forgot to shoot the missing one before I hung the work, all are on canvas and done with acrylic.

If your in the area stop down and see the show, I hear its a lot of fun, this is my first one, so I really don't know.

Google it, for a little more info

I agree with Joyce; I would recognize your work, too. A bit disturbing but I love 'em. Sounds like a good exhibit--I've read about the one in northern VA.
