Baby Pug

July 27, 2010

cute baby pug, pug,dog,puppyI have decided to stray a bit from what I usually do. I am really enjoying doing pet portraits. I am especially fond of the Pug. There has been a positive response. How can you go wrong with a pug they are just so darn cute and a baby pug we’ll that just seals the deal. However I am going to try my hand at a variety of pets. I welcome any commissions I have done a few for family and friends. This work was bought by a friend of an art gallery owner. I was taken back by how much he liked it. The original piece was 8×10 and done in acrylic.


Self Worth

June 3, 2009

What does it really mean to be a person living in this day and age? Most of the time I only have myself to offer to the World, that world might be signifagantly smaller than other peoples World’s but it is still mine. How I am perceived in this World of mine seems to differ from person to person. But for the most part I feel as if people only recognize you through some sort of wealth or personal accumulation. And even others will only give you their time if you resemble someone out of an airbrushed magazine. So I ask again what is self worth? Does it have to be material? I mean so many people have so many good qualities that go unnoticed because someone doesn’t seem to take the time to get to know this person and what they have to offer the World. I might sound cliche to say the least but it really is what is inside that counts

Friends Till the End

Carlos and Sally

I made this piece in commemoration of two wonderful friends, not only to me but to each other. I met Carlos and Sally at a support group I frequent. Carlos has become a great friend and Sally is the gentlest soul I have ever met. The two have become close and Carlos’ sister has decided to buy this piece for him. And being the art lover he is I am glad he has come to own this work of mine.

The First Cut isn’t always the Deepest

April 1, 2009

I have heard so many people profess that the first heartbreak is the worst. I beg to differ in my own experience the hurt never gets easier. Just tonight I saw a pic of an old girlfriend I mean years ago and it stirred up so much emotion, How can one picture cause so much pain? Maybe I’m not as emotionally stable as the average person or maybe I’m just more honest about my feeling than most people. I’ve always been uper sensitive and how come the partners that treat you the worst are always remembered so fondly.

The Last Taboo

March 29, 2009


Dispite alot of nose thumbing and quite alienations I’ve decided to be as public as possible about my struggles with mental illness in hopes to help others in simular situations.  I know that destigmatization of mental health concerns is still in it’s infancy stage. But if certain members of other minorities decided against action there wouldn’t be a black American President Gay marriage or even women working or voting, now mind you I don’t consider myself a pioneer like Rosa Parks. But I do hope to help others feel comfortable with their stationn in life we all have crosses to bear but some of ours are invisible.
