Enjoy this time-lapse video of my recent painting, "Grapes"! This consists of 13 hours of film crammed into just over a minute.  It is graphite, oil, gold leaf and silver leaf on board. 11"X14"

Sorry for the lack of blog posting...I'm an artist and writing isn't my forte ;) At any rate, I wanted to share this special bit of info with my viewers! Overnight, I became a published photographer! 

A few months back, I was asked to photograph Kevin Fennell's drum kit of the famous indie band, "Guided By Voices". Kevin decided to put the drum kit up for auction on eBay and wanted some quality photographs taken to post (and keep). It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up!

Well, the auction went live recently and The Hollywood Reporter got wind of the kit for sale and wanted to post an article about it. They emailed me last night asking if they could use one of my photos in this article, or course I allowed it.

I mean, this isn't world shattering here people...but hey, I call it a win in my book!  LA here I come ;-P


Getting There

It is exciting to finally see my website, brand, and artwork finally coming together. I left my job back in mid May 2013 to start my career as a fine artist and I can't believe how much time it takes to get your ducks in a row. Word of advice, if you give yourself a month to start a new business...give yourself three.
