Shooting Stars

A new painting ya'll... I've been thinking that I need to do at least one a month for the newt few months and get another batch together. Everything I've wanted to sell is gone now and I'd like to offer more for the people still wanting some of my work.

This one is small and affordable, and popped into my head this morning at the coffee shop. It's about the contrast we all feel in life. Crying and smiling at the same time... and how you may not know it, but the guy next to you that you don't know probably feels the same way. Enjoy!

"The Sun May Rise"

Hello all. Another painting... this one is titled “The Sun May Rise” None of us are guaranteed another day of life. It is my opinion that we should cherish life and the people around us and that THIS is the way we as individuals can make a difference in the world around us.

Life Amongst Us


This one is done with acrylic, oil pastel, oil paint and pencil… Ya, a little strange but that is how I get the effects that I want. It is about a family that I love. It pictures the positive influence that they will have on the people and the earth around them as they grow. We all have choices to make, positive or negative, it is my opinion that we should really try to make things better around us.

Sky and Stars

Sometimes life is kind of happy, sometimes it's kind of sad.

Ummm, don't think I'm too strange... it's sold anyway.

Tree on a hill


The big lonely tree on a hill... the older I get... the more I kind of want to be that tree.

More people or angels or whatever you think they are...


Believe it or not… you influence the people around you. Even if you think that you are not an influencer.


I was thinking one day what would it be like to see people shooting up into the sky?


Not really the way family was meant to be… It seems to me that our families are not surviving very well. It can be very hard on everyone involved and especially the children involved. It leaves people confused, hurt, and questioning what this life is all about.

By the Lake


This is the view behind my friends cottage… one of the only places I’ve been able to relax in the last few years.


My brother and I were very close growing up; we had to look out for each other through some hard times when we left my dad. I was older so I felt it was my duty to protect him.


Here is an oil pastel I did on paper.

I went through a phase where I did a bunch of paintings that had that kind of character in them.
