I painted “Forever Free Falling” at KAABOO Del Mar in 2017 during one of Tom Petty’s final performances. This is my tribute to the man, the legend, and now the angel. I’ll be back at KAABOO Del Mar this September with a few surprises up my sleeve.

Braska and I finally finished setting up our new room and she loves it…and that makes me happy. A lot of uncomfortable but necessary life changes lately. I’m taking some big chances on myself because, upon reflection, my life just wasn’t what I wanted it to be and I was very unhappy. If you’re unhappy with your life, you may need to make some decisions that will make you temporarily uncomfortable as you reset and put yourself back on a track towards happiness. I no longer have the studio space I once did or the security of regular work, but I have opened myself up to the universe and new opportunities. I will make do with what I have for the time being and look forward to what is to come. Take chances. Invest in yourself. Make the jump.

“I Gave You Every Piece Of Me But You Could Never Love A Puzzle (95,126,814,720 Pieces Of An Alchemist)” reflects upon battles with both self-love and the realization I often give the love I always wish I had. It’s often difficult for people to love a puzzle they can’t put together. The box can be intriguing, maybe they even open it, but so few are willing to take the time to see it through to the final piece. The number of puzzle pieces is also a direct reference to my mega creation Regenaissance. Perhaps the reason the puzzle is so difficult to complete is that so many pieces are missing because they were given away to people that mishandled them and never put them back in the box.

“Flesh Of My Flesh (Deribon)” tells a story of creation and the interconnectedness of relationships. If you look closely, you may spot a large figure in the upper right corner and a much smaller figure in the bottom right. The smaller figure is in a state of genesis, feeding and growing from the nourishment and energy of the other.

This painting does have ties to a specific creation story, referencing Eve being created from the rib of Adam. Shortly after this painting was completed, someone vandalized it, puncturing and cutting through it right where Eve’s rib is. I had to patch Eve’s rib and carefully mend it, which I feel added to the symbolism and energy of the painting.

“Faces Of The Parabox” is a subset from “The Boy In The Box” series. Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box.

Featured: Wandering Wonderer

I don’t wonder because I wander. I wander because I wonder. This one is dedicated to the avant-garde, the wanderers, the frontier pushers. Wishing you great prosperity and safe travels.

“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized me with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. My signature icon, which I saw flashing in my head during the concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

“It’s Always Okay Until It’s Not” reflects upon how, often in life, out of sight is out of mind and things aren’t a problem in our eyes or minds until they are. Sometimes we see it coming and sometimes we don’t. When it hits though, it is up to us to make it right.

“Consumption Of The White Whale (Ahadevale)” references “Moby Dick” in a tale of obsession and total consumption with added historical references to Georgia O’Keeffe. You may spot that hidden treasure with an obsessive canvasing of this whale watching experience. What is your obsession? What is your white whale?
