It’s been a while. 

May 17, 2017

It’s been a while 
since my eyes have seen 
a daybreak over rocky shores. 
This lucid scape, my mind creates 
Remembering times in the pools. 
Once your out,  past crash and thunder
The mind can stop and be. 
Before the lines are marching
and the waves start forming
Breath, be, live, see.  You’re free

Demo daze.

Back to Joe’s

July 9, 2016

I recently was given an opportunity to be rehired at Trader Joe’s, Redlands. Thanks Brina! I have the pleasure of getting an early start on the day by doing signs and other projects with the store 99 team. Here are a few chalk pen signs. Enjoy.

Everyday should be a hollow day.

Christmas is once a year, but that doesn’t have to be the case! Opportunities to give happen all year long. So next year, don’t wait until the weather gets chilly, or the mountains are white with snow. Let the spirit of the Christmas season shine all year long!  Ho Ho Ho, merry Christmas! 

Chalk lit.

I participated in Maintenance Day at my son’s school over the weekend. An obligation I had signed up for, not knowing what to expect but not being overly thrilled with the idea of deep cleaning a preschool classroom. To my pleasure I arrived to chewy Quaker granola bars and all smiles from the teachers and other parents. My tasks were not at all what I had imagined. Changing light bulbs, cleaning fish tanks, hanging a paper maché hammerhead shark, repainting a chalkboard sign, and the last job being the cake on top. Drawing with chalk on the playground tricycle garage.

Animals on parade

May 5, 2015

Fatherhood has inspired me in so many ways. Lately, I have been getting my boys (2 and 4,) involved with my drawing. I ask them what to draw and they make up something, usually it involves some type of animal doing something silly or unusual. Kids sure do have a great imagination, and it’s always fun to see it in action. 

These 2 paintings are from the mind of my eldest. They were first drawn on blank greeting cards in the car while waiting for mom to finish our errands. Both are acrylic on canvas. Both are for sale.

Kids are awesome! 

Locked but not loaded, yet.

The booth is ready for ammunition. Drawings and paintings will be hung in the morning.  

 Sales start at 11am, so you’ll be able to get your Saturday lie in. Flock of Seagulls are on at 7:30pm, and Berlin follow at 8:30. That gives a good window for enjoying Yucaipa’s old town, and supporting local artists and local business.

April 29, 2015

I found a box of blank greeting cards in my “Mary Poppings bag”, so I decided to challenge myself and draw on one everyday. They will be for sale at the Yucaipa Arts and Music festival this weekend. All cards will be original drawings. We will be set up Friday evening and be open for business until closing time on Sunday. Cruise on through!

  Orbitals light a soft path. A hard line divides. Crashing, repeatedly; sleeeeeeep.

I often think about the birds. They make me smile.

The family of Related Grey have been kind enough to allow me to hang some art on the walls of their headquarters. Thank you rG, for the space, the amazing photos, and the love. Check it.

First love… and oil.

I have recently been involved in my first oil commissioned portrait… and i am loving it. This was an oil pastel drawing i did in college. The assignment was called first love… and just so happens to be in the collection of my good friend Kyle Lightner. (you should surf on by his website.)
