  • GMO’s

    Since I had a complete running-fail last week, I’m hoping to have just a little more motivation for tomorrows run.  

  • A Long Walk

    Right now, at this very moment, I’m supposed to be back-seat gaming as my better-at-video-games-half plays Borderlands II. Instead, I failed to create a new post featuring my latest work, so, here I sit in my studio blogging about the image to your left.  Admittedly, there were a few technical issues while photographing this piece.…

  • Fish With Watering Can

    Acrylic on Canvas –  11″x14″ This painting sold within two days of putting her on display.  I’ve been considering jacking up my prices, so you might want to hurry and grab one soon. This particular painting is a pastiche of Renoir’s “Girl With Watering Can”.  I think the inspiration to do a Renoir came from…

  • Fish on a Bicycle in a Tree

      Acrylic on Canvas – 16″ x 20″ My most recent painting now complete and almost ready to replace the ones I sold.  If this sounds like bragging, well, it might be (just a little bit), and after having a nice brag-fest, I’m always struck with the feeling that my next painting or work will…

  • The RSS Fish

    RSS Fish Acrylic on Canvas – 8″ x 6″ I recently fixed an old Gilbert clock from the 1920’s.  It’s one the most fascinating toys I’ve ever had because you can see all the levers and cogs moving as it keeps your time.  Of course, that will be hidden again once I’m finished re-furbishing its bell-shaped case.…

  • Waste Not

    “Pork Chops” Acrylic on Canvas – 8″ x 6″ Be sure the animals you eat have lived a happy life.  Please don’t support corporate farms that abuse their animals.  This painting was inspired by Breakaway Farms (our local farmers). If you decide to eat meat, please have respect for the creature and leave as little waste as possible. As…

  • When Pigs Dance

    Acrylic on Canvas 8″ x 6″ Another day, another table, and here are two pigs.  Pigs are interesting.  Most anyone who visits a farm can hear its bellowing snort that might be cute if it didn’t rattle bones and echo up the valley. They kinda remind me of the American Pit Bull in form.  This may be…

  • Those Funny-Bunny Comments

    Acrylic on Canvas – 8″ x 6″ I finally figured out how to incorporate a 3rd party comment section within my blog, and it only took me about 4 hours.  I calculate around 5 minutes to install a comment enabler called “Disqus”, however, it didn’t work quite right.  It took me the other 3 hours and…

  • Fish With Apple

    SOLD: Acrylic on Canvas – 8″x 6″ This represents how I felt yesterday after installing my Art in a New Jersey restaurant.  However, after having spent most of my life in Chicago, I expect everything to be like one big grid, so, naturally, I got lost while getting there.  Thanks to that special someone and…

  • Fall Hands

    Mostly Acrylic On Canvas – 24″ x 36″ I ran out of black paint, and to get to the nearest overpriced art-store, I must buy an overpriced train ticket to travel downtown.  So, I used some left-over latex house paint.  It seemed to work…
