Absence of Art

I have been away. Away from this blog, away from art… AWAY!  Of this we have no doubt. So much has transpired since my last post on this blog. Most of it I am still dealing with. Little of it will I mention in this post. Let’s just say more than a couple life altering […]

Pensive in Stockholm

This is my latest complete digital painting of my best friend based on a photograph I took of her in Stockholm, Sweden. This was done on my iPad as usual. It is all I have for my digital artwork and works quite well. I use Procreate and good active stylus. I used a technique I had only […]


This a recent digital portrait I did on my iPad. Steinunn is a wonderfully talented musician and a great friend from Iceland.

Girl in Pink

My latest portrait done in graphite on paper. I am starting to feel my abilities slowly coming back to me. I will never give up my art again.

Te Amo

“Te Amo”, a recent painting I did for my best friend’s birthday. She wanted a sugar skull. I wanted to make it special. The Incan Cross is in honor of her Peruvian home. The rest is just me putting a whole lot of love into a painting for someone dear to my heart. 18×24 Oil […]

Young captain, this aging ship.

When the mind and the body are in two different worlds, one seeks the other never meeting in between. Young is my heart and playful the mind. Drawn to youth and racing away the same. Foolhardy feelings lend to adventures and unsettling moments. Bold, gentle steps into the open I go. Many lives lived and […]

The Journal

I wrote in my journal today. It was the first time in over a year since I had written anything. Coming out of depression is scary and amazing. Change is scary and amazing. Living is scary and amazing. As I sat outside around the corner from my apartment writing outside the coffee shop,  the sun […]
