I am exploring the Stroke language. It covers but can also reveal what is deeper, hidden and personal. It’s a splash of organic creativity. The open circle is like arms holding you close.
Wear it like it’s hot. Art on shirt. Art on everything.
I woke up Listening to @lildickygram love song “Molly" and it made me think about you. I know I am not supposed to dance by myself and tear up listening to Lil Dicky but I did. I have had the chance to meet amazing women in my life. I have "forever love" for you. You have made me smile and cry a lot too. I feel like "You can find an other me tomorrow and that is the hardest pill to swallow.” I don’t often share my feelings but this morning I felt this could help me.

This commission painting is almost done. It will be traveling to Texas to the home of one my collectors. I am so happy to be able to create and connect with people all over the world.
I am exploring an older painting as I am working on a new commission painting. I am relearning tools with a new perspective.
I looked down at my studio floor and this is what I saw. A beautiful and random combination of colors, textures and materials. I took this picture without thinking but now that I see it, I can’t help but be inspired. Luck is part of our life but we have to be ready to accept it. Good luck to you for today and every other day of your life.
An other great shot from my brother @samimages I always feel conflicted to post pics of me as it feel self centered and vain but I also know that people want to know about the person behind the art. I just have to embrace that my art is part of me and I am part of my art.
A part of me loves making art for the benefit of collecting. Creating new art is like adding a new thing to my collection. I am lucky that even when my works sells, I still feel connected to it as if I still had it. I am a producer, I am a maker, I am a painter.
On a long journey you have to go steady, never look back and breath when you face obstacles. This Elephant represents my journey. I wish you the best for yours.
This self portrait by vincent Van Gogh is the third painting in my Homage series. Like with Mona Lisa and the Girl with the pearl earring I try to show my admiration for the masters by the simplification of shapes and form.
The two sides of my personality are here on the canvas and in the room. The adult trying to connect with the outside world and understand it but also the inner child that is ready to leave the event to go back to imagining Pirate stories with treasures and adventures. I can only speak for myself but I am trying to get the adult and the child to be best friends.
The Master and The Fatalist (48x48 in) What do you get when you peel away our superficial layer? We all have this inner chaos, the voice in our head that is the worst roommate in the world but also we feel love and passion. It’s not pretty inside but there is so much life to be channeled to create our outside world. This painting tells this story for me. What is your personal interpretation of this painting?
What Master painting homage should I do next? What is the painting from a Master you connect with. I keep thinking about evolving all the time but decided to pause for a second and create a series around this Homage idea. My goal is to make at least 10. I am looking forward to inviting you to the process.
Do you think this painting stands on it’s own? Smiley face.
his is an other of my homage paintings. The Original is delicate and beautiful. It captures her soul in many layers of composition, color and subject. My version is mine and it is all I need. I loved painting this as it showed me the possibilities of my work getting closer to the human soul in a simple and straight forward way.
I am working of a series to honor the Masters of the past. I am using my Low Poly style to reduce Mona Lisa to it’s most basic shapes and dimensionality. The style is grounded in the early 3d games of the mid 90’s. I enjoy working with a limited toolset and creating art that dances in-between Abstract and figurative.
One of the most asked question I get regarding my process is: How do you do the circles in the background of the paintings? The answer is: I use a special marker called a drip mop. The model I use the most is the K60 from @krinknyc This tool has had a great impact on my work and it was a great first step to then use paint and brush back in my early years.
