Fudog, tattoo design, Aug. 6, 2009
This was done on request while inquiring about tattoos and their relevance today. The fudog is a guardian of high officials or royalty in Chinese culture. The one on the left is a female holding a playful pup, and the one on the right is a male holding a sphere. The number of rings or curls in the hair represent the "importance" of the person or family being guarded. The more rings, the higher the rank or importance of the person/family.

Acrylic on canvas, 48" x 30", May 28, 2009

This piece has been in the making for a long time. This was my first attempt to stretch my own canvas, and boy did I choose a fun one to start with. The piece is 4 feet wide and 2.5 feet high! This is the largest painting I've done on canvas...but I'm getting off the subject. I stretched the canvas a year ago, and did not start painting on it until later...much later. I worked on it the last month and finally put the finishing touches on it yesterday.
This one will not be sold. It is a gift to my lovely wife for our eighth wedding anniversary!

Fancy Meeting You Here SOLD!!!

Acrylic, latex and oil paint on 2 plywood panels (8'x4' ea.)

I completed this piece about 2 years ago. I wanted to try something new and eye catching, so I did two profile self portraits on eight foot plywood! To date, this is my largest work.

The Human Condition

High fired terracotta, life size, May 2009

Price: $300

I call this one The Human Condition because it is inevitable for us all. Not to be dark or anything, but it does help to remind me of my own mortality and how I don't really have any control over death. I just know that, eventually, this will be what is left of my physical state.

Scared Spud
This is a funny little scene I came across while cleaning my three-year-old's play room. I did a little editing to the image, but for the most part, this is the way I found it.
