This painting was completed during my Akron Soul Train residency, so technically not that new, but made in 2019 and it hasn't been widely circulated. "Equinox" 30x30 inches, oil on canvas. A lot of bits and pieces in this painting were created in 3D modeling software (which I am still getting the hang of) and… Continue reading New Painting: Equinox

‘Illustrious Decay’ Opening Night
Thank you to everyone who came from near and far and attended the "Illustrious Decay" opening at CWAL and 78th Street Studios.

Biomorpic Progress Shots
I've been busy working on paintings for my solo show in November. Here are some sneaky peeky shots of the progress. I'll admit it, I have no idea what I'm doing and these are very far off from the initial sketches I did.
An Empty Calendar Is Death, After All

I'm glad the show got moved to the late fall!
New Painting: Heartbreaker
"Heartbreaker" 12x12 inches, oil on canvas. I'm pretty much booked on commissions through the summer, however, I have been wanting to get back to this series for ages. Good thing is I can sometimes work on it in-between layers drying on my commissioned work! (click the image to zoom in)
