Myrtle Beach Evening Clouds
Oil on Canvas, 18"x12"x2.5" I started off abstract, but wanted a more calm scene. 
Maureens Vally
Commission Piece. Oil on Canvas 24"x24"x3"I tried to blend some abstract with some amount of realism. 
Cadmium Rose
6"x6" palette knife painting. Color study using primarily cad red. Knocked this out today, went quick. #roseflower #rose #nature #cadmium 
The Sound of Sunlight
16"x20" Oil on Canvas. Abstracted piece again. Just had fun with the color and experimenting with different line work. Location is somewhere North of Indianapolis 
Southern Hardwoods
Oil on Canvas 8"x11". Used images from my trip to the Congaree National Forest for inspiration here. Mostly palette knife, mostly abstract
I work, and work, and produce, and produce. The aim is fuzzy but the target is there. You can't discern it with any clarity, however your goal looms like a giant planet rising from the surface, just opaque and distant. It's a paradoxical mix to both prospect the future and be actively tuned into the present. An exercise in futility or perhaps an exercise in controlling two seemingly powerful forces that demand heavy burdens of energy and focus. For years, art has been a friend, a foe, an indifferent paragon that has helped shape the present. The reality is, Art is a vehicle. A vehicle to take me to that distant place; that rising terraform or.. the next level. I'm approaching exit velocity but my navigation is still lacking.
