I had been planning to paint someone with freckles for awhile and I finally found the right reference photo and concept for the painting.  It's really close to done now, just gotta figure out what to name the painting now....

For a long time I had a certain talent for procrastination. I can't say it was entirely from being lazy, I believe a good portion of it came from fear. I managed to kick my procrastination habits on the artistic frontier although they remain in...

I've had this subject on my mind for the past couple of weeks.  There are so many things in life and chances I don't  take out of fear.  I've given it too much power, it exists too keep you alive but you shouldn't use it as...

I discovered SigNif earlier this year and was really impressed with her flow and the fact that she didn't sound like many female or male rappers.  Too many people are following trends nowadays, I was pleasantly surprised to come across someone walking their own path.  I started following her...

I seem to have stumbled into a landscape phase of painting.  It started with a couple of landscape commission's and that led to re-watching Bob  Ross episodes.  I Love that guy.  Anywho, here's the latest of this series.  I painted a polar bear.  Recently, could be the season or my sons...

"Understand exactly what it takes to be creative, And display greatness the dedication it takes, The time consumption the stakes if you say it ain’t high, That’s a blind assumption and open your eyes or something, Defy the odds, Multiply with nothing grip the skies, I...
