Bluewater Shore – Ferry Crossing – Acrylic study

Another month, another painting. For a while now I have been working on some representational studies inspired by my artist book, Bluewater Shore.

Diary; July 19th – Website updates

The one aspect of a maintaining an artistic website is that it's relatively 'static', which really means that it just lurks out there in never-space just waiting for someone to find it.

The letter from the U.S. Army, as well as the enclosed pamphlet, were printed in both English as well as Spanish reminding everyone that we... Continue Reading →

Hope (during an ongoing pandemic)

Thus my fifth in a series of diptych mini-posters (fourth, Dreaming was published here), and this one reaffirms my hope for the future.
