I’m excited to have “As Open Wounds Open Wings” and “.38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness)” on exhibit at Arts District Liberty Station with the Expressive Arts Institute in the Martha Pace Swift Gallery until June 15th. The Show is called “Recovering The Artist: A Show About Hope” and it’s the perfect place for me to debut these creations.
I love this photo I captured last night through the bars at the opening. Looking down at my work from a higher point of view, I was reminded that we create our own prisons and sometimes all we need is an alternative perspective. It is up to us to move, change, and grow to remove those bars. Otherwise, it will appear as if we are trapped when we are really just uncomfortable and require a shift in our lives. It’s better to be momentarily uncomfortable and working towards growth than to be eternally uncomfortable and simply accept where we are at any given moment when/where we feel imprisoned or beaten down by life. Remove your bars and set yourself free!

One of my most intense and intricate paintings to date, this piece 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. This is one of the creations I am most proud of over the years for everything that went into it.
“Foreverandever.” Acrylic on canvas. 60in x 96in. Original and prints available in a variety of sizes.
People make a lot of promises about “forever” but that “forever” doesn’t often seem to last very long. When I say “forever”, I want it to mean “Foreverandever.” This painting depicts a scenic gardenesque fantasyland filled with floral delights, plenty of safe places to rest head, and the warm light of the setting sun peering in from above to touch your shoulder and let you know everything is going to be alright. This is the world of your dreams and everything you deserve… “Foreverandever.”
