  • 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…

  • New Project

    While training for the marathon, I spawned an idea for a new project that will occupy ALL much of my time.  However, I hope to be finished with it in several years weeks.  The sooner, the better.  A reliable source mentioned that once you have a dated digital record of something, it’s basically copyrighted.  With…

  • Fishing Fish

    I needed blue paint.  So, I got myself some French Ultramarine Blue while thinking, ‘the French know their oil paints, why wouldn’t I need this product?’ Unfortunately, it wasn’t a vibrant enough blue for my needs.  On the other hand, because I wasn’t relying as much on the vibrancy of the color, it did force…

  • Carp with a Fiddle

    I had originally created this image for my father (who loves the violin and all things classical).  But, he just wanted a print.  So, now it hangs above our fireplace in Philadelphia as a reminder to go back to Chicago as frequently as possible. This one isn’t for sale because we like it so much.…

  • Life Without Orange Roughy

    Last week, I bought a chunk of frozen Orange Roughy (hoplostethus atlanticus).  After noting that the fish had been prepared and shipped from New Zealand, my fiancee decided to look it up.  We discovered that it can live almost 150 years.  Their growth is slow and they don’t reproduce until an estimated 30 years of age.…

  • Rowing Fish

    I’m launching a new site, but, it might take a while.  I’m currently figuring out the best place to put it and the best way to utilize my new domain.  I’m looking into understanding HTML a little better.  I really like blogger (especially their new ‘behind the scenes’ set up).  However, there are some things…

  • Flounder on a Bicycle

    Flounder on a Bicycle

    Sometimes I like to poke around on bicycle sites to see what the latest trend is.  I found a picture of a red bicycle that caught my attention and decided to paint a red bicycle. The flounder is an entirely different story altogether.

  • Prints!

    Print on heavy paper with water based ink ~ 4″ x 6″ Hey everybody! I’ve been having a blast trying out block printing for the past few weeks, and just in time for First Friday (this Friday). You can find me around 2nd and Arch street shellin’, sellin’, selling my work. Getting eaten alive by…

  • Birth of Venus Remake

    Fish-style version of epic paintings about the birth of Venus. I used both the Botticelli and Poussin versions as inspiration and reference to create this piece. The making of this idea began with a need for something ‘epic’ and evolutionary to set above our fireplace. I hope it’s epic enough to be hung within a…

  • Nondescript Running Fish

    This is a nondescript freehand painting of some random fish on the street. I’m about to begin a much larger work. It is to become the most famous re-make of the “Birth of Venus” ever created. The beginnings of this work is already rumored to be “epic”. It may take a month or longer to…
