Premiere of my newest video

Come and watch with me at midnight.


life at almost 37

My journey into the dark started with colors. The dark I speak of is my mind. Painter has this quality to it that lets you make what ever you can dream up; so you have to challenge your self to look so deep in yourself that you hit bottom every time. I build pathways to the sea bed back to the surface and then plant seeds for new concepts. It leaves me swollen and scared in a good way. Plant a tree and feed a forest. The roots are strong and powerful but not meant to last longer then a few lifetimes of paintings. Maybe a few hundred paintings and then a new tree has to be planted on top of it. Madness, beautiful madness.

she grows in colors and concepts.

So I’ve had the photography bug in me since High school. My first job was I worked at a theme park in NC/SC. I developed a lot of films and took tourist photos.

The job was not amazing but I found it to be kind of brilliant but to structured. I’m a child of chaos as you well know.

I just walked around for a few weeks and took the shots that jumped out to me.

I just love how they turned out.

Weird but beautiful .

odd angles and lighting.

The book is coming a long. It’s harder to finish then I imagined a second book would be and I have a few commissions to do this month.

Check out my stuff, when you get a chance.

And watch my video from last week.

life on a paint brush.

Found this old gem.

So much to see in the old days of painting and making films.
