Black Mutt on a White Mutt

20x20", oil on wood.

SOLD: Collection of Jason Abels
Austin, Texas.

This icon like painting is composed on a cradled birch panel primed with handmade Renaissance style Gesso and techniques inspired by the old world masters.

A doting dog owner wanted to have his love and joy portrayed luminous and immortal. The closeness of the foreground figure to the chest of his tattooed and pierced human symbolizes the animal's closeness to his master's heart.

Automotive Quadriptych (Joel, Sally, Violet and Clarissa)

24x12" each, oil on wood.

SOLD: Collection of John Binns,
Austin, Texas.

John Binns commissioned an intimate portrait of his favorite four things: his automobiles. The artist spent several days on site, at Binns', home crouched low, capturing the details of each car from an unusual point of view. This body of work explores the relationship that people have to their possessions. Can person truly love an inanimate object like a car? Can a car love the person back? How do we see ourselves in the things that we own? Do possessions take on the human qualities of their masters?

Visitor from the 2nd dimension
(Blue Herron)

36x24" irregular shape, oil on wood.

SOLD: Collection of
Barbara Prendergast. Ottowa, Illinois.

To those of us who exist in the third dimension, the flat picture plane of a painting is portal into the parallel, second dimension. A painting invites us to peer into a realm where the logic of emotion and spirit can be sensed with our eyes. It is an enlightening experience, yet many of us don't get to do this very often, because while we have X and Y we are overwhelmed with Z. This visitor, is not intimidated by how complicated our dimension can seem. He reaches through the square portal, into our world (which seems quite flat to him), and offers us a gesture of pure inspiration, a good omen: a sky blue brush stroke, painted on the very fabric of our dimension.

Stand Back!

3x5", oil on canvas.

SOLD: Collection of Jackie Wolf,
Amherst, Massachusetts.

Featured in the Carnegie Mellon BFA Theses Exhibition To Get To The Other Side at the Regina-Gouger Miller Gallery in 2007.

It is a life-sized self portrait in which the artist aims a paintbrush at the viewer like a fire arm. The explosive splatter and drip marks were created when the artist shot its surface with a Super Soaker 100 water gun filled with thinned oil paint.
