At Moms House

This is one of the first self portraits I created using an iPad Air. This was before Apple Pencil but I did have a stylus. I wanted this piece to be an abstraction, I was playing around with tone and trying to define a palette that will be evident in some of the work...

Here is a painting based on a photo booth image. My plan is to utilize some of these digital paintings as a basis for on canvas paintings either in oils or pastels beginning next year. They might be used as an under-painting or just reference. I’ll likely...

Welcome to my new blog

This is me trying to use WordPress “in” my site instead of Tumblr in an iframe. I’ve been on pause with WordPress for years because it seemed like a difficult way to do design. But I think I found a compromise by halfway building a template for...
