My new “Puzzled Hearts” collection will be a hybrid of my unique techniques where anything goes. They will be looser, more painterly, and very much read like poetic journal entries. They’re fun, raw, and a highly cathartic process of processing.

Pre-order your puzzled heart now or reserve your commission. Please also check out the new weekly podcast available on Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes. Want to take a private art lesson with me? DM me.

“Where Time Falls.” Time is not static and exists in multiple states. It is not bound by clocks or timekeepers. Relativity has shown us all time and time again that a second can feel like eternity and eternity can feel like a second. At times it feels as if it stops and at others we wish it would. It’s difficult to predict where and how time will fall, but it’s absolutely imperative we treasure the time we do have because it’s virtually impossible to retrieve once lost. Yesterday’s tomorrow has arrived and the time is now. Now is always the time. Make the most out of yours and may time forever fall in your favor.

This painting is dedicated to my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, who tragically went missing in 2015 and has yet to be found. It is suspected that she was murdered but there has been no closure to date. Deanne once asked me to do a huge painting with a giant pair of wings. This is my tribute to her.

Deanne always called me her “Wings” and is the reason I have them tattooed on my back. I just wish I could have there for her this last time when she really needed me most. I could sense the call was going to come, but it never did, and part of me knew why. I’ve always felt that I failed her by not being there that last time, though I wanted to be and would have been. I think one of the reasons I work so hard is because of Deanne. I always tried so hard to impress her and make her proud. The last time I saw her, she told me she was. I will forever do whatever I can to keep her spirit alive through my creations. She is now my “Wings” and my angel. I love you Deanne.

Do you remember that self-portrait of depression I shared a few weeks ago? My newest creation is complete and being quality control checked by Braska. “Between The Gates (The Alchemist’s Key)” is finally ready to come off the easel. This one really tested me but it was imperative I finish it during Mental Health Awareness Month. Though it was an up and down journey, it played out exactly as it needed to and it really couldn’t have gone any other way for me to arrive where I did. This one kind of blew my mind to be truthful. There is a whole lot more to this painting than meets the eye.

This painting reflects upon being trapped between two gates and the search for the key to escape. The truth is, you already have it. You are the key. You are the key to everything in your life. It is also up to you to determine which gate you open. The same key opens both gates and only you can make the decision. One gate leads to regret, but it’s a practical road filled with familiar comforts. The other gate leads to everything you ever dreamed of, but it will require you to crawl through hell to get there and it will sometimes feel as if that hell has no end. Decide-

On Friday, I put in my notice for my job, half expectedly and half unexpectedly, because I could feel it killing my soul. We are not here to punch a clock, go home, repeat, and die. There is more to life than that, if you can even call that a life. For too long I’ve been trapped in the mediocrity of comfort and the only way I will ever see my potential and reach my dreams is to leave that safe zone. I really don’t know what’s ahead of me but the way I see it, falling a little short or falling a lot short is still simply falling short. You might as well take a chance and go after that dream. What do you really have to lose? I’d rather choose the route of going after everything I’ve ever wanted in the process of my pursuits and I hope you will do the same. Go get yours!
