It’s a Long Way To The Top

It’s a Long Way To The Top

I love music and how it has the power to capture moments and feelings. Seeing a live performance of your favorite band…there’s nothing like it.

One of my very first piece’s using texture.

I used spackling on a raw canvas and painted everything after. I don’t recommend this option.

My First Original Painting Sold!!!

This painting took years to complete. I started off painting it in a tie-dye look and really hated it.

So it sat and sat and sat until I took a non-drawing/painting art class at the community college and one of our final projects was do create something, anything we wanted. I did a small painting and finished way before the due date for the assignment. The professor was not really impressed and quite frankly, neither was I. So I pulled out the old Morrison painting and changed it to black and white. This painting launched my first solo art show.

You Are Here

You Are Here

I used to love going to the mall when I was a teenager. Remember the directory with the You are Here red dot…that had some influence.

Plus, personal growth and life decisions

Marilyn Monroe

I wanted to paint another celebrity and not a musician. Who else would you paint?

I was figuring out shadows and playing with different styles. Learning to deal with negative space.
