Braska helps me arrange works on the painting racks. I have quite a few large works available, including the ones at ArcLight Cinemas La Jolla in Westfield UTC until January, 2020. 

Here I have “As The Caged Bird Sings.” 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.

I took this original to KAABOO Del Mar this past month. The original is available and affordable prints are also available HERE

Her love is a buried treasure hiding at the bottom of the lost and found.

I loved “El Camino” and it was so cool walking into ArcLight Cinemas La Jolla and seeing my work…seeing the way people approached and interacted with each painting…very humbling experience. Sunny Rey sure had a good time too.

Featured: A Father That Was The Son. Original and prints available. Worldwide shipping and payment plans available.

She sings to her shadows. She dances with her demons. She draws in the dreams of lost and forgotten loves. The company she keeps is the only company she has…and thus, so too, it has her.

“Labyrinth Of The Butterfly” detail shot. What do you see in the details?
One of my most intense and intricate paintings to date, this painting started out white and red. Somewhere along the journey I lost my way a bit and was tangled up in the labyrinth. When I emerged, this was the result.

Affordable canvas prints of this painting HERE. Free shipping and payment plans available.

An overcast life filled to the brim with rainy days, she will always be partial to standing in the rain because of the manner in which is masks her flood of tears.
