This is one of my latest works. It was a real struggle to get anything I liked out of it. (Please forgive the poor image quality.) It is called A Moment of Passing Chaos. It is oil on panel, 16 x 20 in. $1000. It is very simple compared to a lot of my work, but the peice itself went through so many changes. It was even sanded down at one point. It has a complex history to go with it's complex meaning. I'm sure there are many people that won't appreciate it; but even if there is only one person in the world that loves it, it is worth all the effort.

This is Swamp Veins. It is 5x7 inches oil on panel. This little puppy was rejected for at least half a dozen shows before it finally made it in one, and it took third place. Just a little reminder to KEEP TRYING!!! Things will happen if you are persistent.

This is by far the largest painting I have done. So far, anyway. It is over 6 1/2 ft long and 2 1/2 ft tall.
It's not for sale because it belongs to my mother. I painted it especially for her kitchen. It started out as one large beach-scape, with seagulls and seashells. After a few years of that, I decided I could make it much more interesting. I was looking at a lot of comic books and really liked the way the images were laid out. So I applied the idea to landscapes. I love the way it turned out.
This painting was in a show called BIG. It was all works over 6 ft. One young man attending the reception took one look and said, "Now that's good." I consider that to be better than an award.
As I mentioned, this painting is not for sale. However, I do have plans to make giclee prints of it, one day. Because of the size, it will be costly to get a high quality image taken. But it is most definitely on my list. I love this painting so much, I feel I must share it with many people. Sorry mom.
