  • Joggling Newbie

    In late January 2016 – I decided to take up juggling and got myself a pair of balls.  Ironically, I share a last name with this “Mister M.” guy, but there is no relation (as far as I know, he only looks like me a little bit).    I didn’t start out with his video.…

  • GMO’s

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

  • Modern Women Running on Beach Pastiche

    Oil on Canvas – 16″x 20″ Someone from DA taught me a new word.  It’s a very special word and I plan to use it to describe future paintings.  Apparently, I was creating a bunch of “pastiches” without even realizing there was a word for it.  Sort of like that time I was painting all…

  • Spring Feet

    Spring Feet – Acrylic on canvas Hello readers!  It’s that time of year when I dust cobwebs off my websites and do some domain/website organizing.  After a long period of attempting and failing to merge that professional look with a personal blog, this blog is going to remain as a blog and nothing more.  My…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Basiliscus Run

    While training for the Chicago marathon, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about running and running while thinking. The basiliscus lizard (depicted in this painting) is often referred to as the “Jesus Lizard” for its ability to run biped on the surface of water. I have not yet attempted to run on water, but,…

  • Normal Foot VS the Abnormal Shoe

    I’ve heard such great things about this shoe. Then, I tried a pair at the store. The rumors are all true. Nike comes in sizes narrow and extra-narrow. My feet are not that narrow, and word on the street dictates that a lot of people won’t buy these shoes for the same reason: TOO NARROW.…

  • Hot Dogs

    It was a hot day yesterday in Philly as the temperature rose into the 70’s. I went for a trail run and found myself trapped between the river and some big rocks. Because I am from the “flat lands” of the Midwest, it all seemed so impassible. I turned around and headed back. Double tracking…
