New Work: dawn of man

This is the newest in my line of Petroglyph Prints, dawn of man: In the Dreamtime, long before the written word, a new figure appeared on the horizon that would change the world.

I'm having fun with my Petroglyph series of prints. I've always loved mythology and archeology and history, stories, and of course, art. So this series is really combining all my loves into one fun ride! Prints are sale, hope to have a website up soon with the entires series available for sale!

My dessert is beating me...

You know your dessert is huge when they give you the Green Giant's fork to eat it ...


Gnocchi and sausage. YUM!

Sunshine reaching out.

Mutant hand growing from tree.

Exploded shrooms.

New Work: Dragon Hunters

Dragon Hunters is the newest in my series of Petroglyphs wherein I combine an iPhone photo (or three) and ancient Petroglyphs to tell a story from the Dreamtime era of humanity. Deep within the caves of the dreamtime, hunters do fierce battle with a fire-breathing dragon.

I started with a spill on the sidewalk that looked to me like a dragon.

I had taken this background texture awhile back (not sure what it was supposed to be because it was so out of focus...

And then added a classic clouds at sunset shot to create the fire from the dragon's mouth.

Then I researched warrior petroglyphs and decided on four distinct individuals to partake in this particular hunt...

If you'll notice, hunting back in the day was pretty dangerous, as one of the warriors did not make it...

Contact me to buy a beautiful 8”x 8” digital archival print on Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper or a gorgeous framed edition that measures approximately 16.75 x16.75”. All prints are hand signed. I make each order up just for you, so please allow 2 to 3 weeks for shipment.

New Work: swimming amongst the stars

It's funny, swimming amongst the stars was not the image I set out to create. As I was exploring a new direction with my petroglyph/photography collage, I did some experimenting. While the intent was to only have a photo background, I found this beautiful image of two swans that I took awhile back. I decided to see what I could do with it as I played a bit. As the image progressed, it really started to take on a life of its own.

While the swans turned out well, I did have some issues with the water/starfield blending. It took quite some time to find the correct balance. But the image still looked a bit unfinished. I added the lanterns (hand drawn) and yet, something was still missing. Finally, I came across a constellation map and that turned out to be the exact finish to this piece.

BTW, if you like this image, I am selling digital archival prints (8"x8", 16.75" x16.75" framed), just message me for more information.
