Katana I

Medium: Oil & Acrylic
Dimensions: 24" x 34"

When this painting dried along with the sister painting Katana II, it was truly a blessing to see they had dried better than expected. It was one of those moments when I guess when you give birth and it's the unexpected and it turns out beautiful.

Blue Hole

Medium: Oil & Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 6' x 4'

I love the blue in this painting, the dark hole in the middle is created from using polyurethane. I made this painting in N.Y. about the same time I made the other large pieces.

Cotton Candy I

Medium: Oil & Acrylic
Size: 20" x 24"

This painting is one of three, created this past summer. The layering process gives the finish a thick luster. I started using copper and silver metallic finishes to highlight and pop certain areas. The bright bursts of color bring the image together.

Graffiti City

Medium: Oil, Acrylic & Polyurethane
Dimensions: 24" x 36"

My memoirs of New York are a reflection in this painting. I have always enjoyed the diverse culture as well as translation of others art. Waiting for a subway to come was always the time I would daze out into the dirty subways and get a lot of inspiration. I always enjoyed looking at the grime that the years of pollution created. N.Y.'s subway terminals have had over 100 years of history that is hard to clean.

Open Air

Medium: Oil & Acrylic
Dimensions: 6' x 8'

This painting is one of my first large paintings after graduating school. I love this one due to the color selection as well as the size. I'm going to start doing large pieces again. This was a piece done in N.Y., the studio I was working in had nice dry heat which made the layering process a lot easier for me. Here in San Diego I can't seem to get the same effect because of the moisture in the air. Due to the size, I believe this one would look great in contemporary loft or a hotel. It needs an open environment to enjoy it to the fullest.

Medium: Oil & Acrylic
Size: 20" x 24"

This contemporary painting was created last summer. The body of the squid is depicted in the first canvas and the tentacles drift off into the second, third and forth canvas. The combination between the browns, copper, and orange give this piece a contradiction that plays off each-others vivid line structure.
