Here is a peak a private commission I finished recently. I actually remembered to take some progress shots of this one. I will share them as soon as get my act together and get them organized;) The client had a very specific concept for this which was alot of fun to bring to life! 18x24 Oils on mounted canvas -- More
I had the pleasure of being interviewed recently by fellow artist Mathew Kaminski. He makes me look like I know what I'm doing!..that's some skill as an interviewer right there;) -- More
After several months of work, I am very happy to announce that I have new website!! Many, many images and paintings for sale, as well as prints and other goodies:) I want to thank Calvin Seymour for putting up with me and not cussing me (at least to my face) when I suggest ...well ....all kinds of stuff;) Thanks for making everything work!
Please take a look around. We are still shaking some bugs out, so let me know if you run into a problem. So, without further adieu-

New cover art for the soon to be released 'Playing To The Gods' by Melanie Rawn for Tor Books! -- More
TBT: Spyro: A New Beginning. This project was a bit of a surprise to me when it came in. It's a bit more cartoony that I am used to and I wasn't sure they had the right artist at first. But, they asked me if I 'painted dragons', what could I say. Still, all in all it turned out to be a fun project! -- More
All finished signing these bad boys!I did a couple of quick doodles on the back of two prints. I thought I would slip them in the stack randomly:) -- More

Here's a new piece I did for the crew at Monte Cook Games:) I have alot of fun with this particular (Ruk) world in 'The Strange' universe. It feels to me like almost anything goes and my approach is more abstract that usual. 'Ruk Metropolis' -digital :) -- More
Back and somewhat rested from an incredible experience at MidSouthCon! Got to hang out with some old friends and made some new ones:) The Midsouth crew treated myself and my entourage (aka. the Wife;)! ) like royalty!...and I could never thank them enough! In short a great time, at fantastic con with wonderful people! -- More
I will be at MidSouthcon in Memphis this weekend! If you're going stop by and say hi...or anything else for that matter:)
I don't do a lot of covers that don't have any figures in them at all but, here's one. I alway enjoy painting crazy trees and forest environments. Done for the cover of L.E. Modesitt Jr's 'Recluce Tales' released by Tor books. -- More
So for those of you following along, Rune Blade is the one got in. It has been interesting hearing all your thoughts. It seems we are all 'all over the place' when it comes to trying to figure this out! I would have guessed either 'Movement In The Garden' or 'Spiral Landscape' but alas those judges are tricky:)..if I ever figure them out I'll let you all know. -- More
I know a lot of folks get upset (I've been guilty of it too) when something they enter doesn't get into Spectrum. I never seem to like the pieces that others seem to like and you can drive yourself crazy trying to second guess art, especially your own. I've adopted a more Zen approach in the last several years. Basically I take $100 (which is a fairly cheap promotional expense), pick 5 pieces I like and throw caution to the wind.
So, I thought I would try something different. Here are my 5 entries for this year. One got in:)! Can you guess which one?:) -- More
A few pics from Cathy's and my show at the at the Hudson Contemporary Gallery in Middletown DE. It will be hanging through the end of the month. The opening was a lot of fun!! Thanks to everyone who made it out:) -- More
