Paul David Hewson, otherwise known as Bono, lead vocalist of U2.During the pandemic, it created a lot of time to paint so I looked at other artists I hadn't done in a long time, if at all. Bono was one such name where I thought it was time to paint. You can probably tell, I... Continue Reading →

Eddie was a Dutch/American songwriter and, arguably the best guitaar player in rock. I painted this in the Spring of 2021, after his passing, I just neglected to share it with you! I captured Eddie during a live performance with none other than his EVH Striped series Guitar. In my mind, the best way to... Continue Reading →

Sometimes a project comes around that pictures alone can't carry the magnitude or level of effort and passion that has gone into it. My Physical Graffiti is such a project. I've shared pictures but looking at them, I am not sure it carries the story well. Why did I make it, how, why? So I... Continue Reading →

Creativity. I find joy, calm and passion in my work, especially wood working. It is something wholly different to any other medium.

Neil Peart

I read in the paper that Neil Peart passed away at 67 of brain cancer. His drumming was explosive, his lyrics transformed the band’s songs as a storyteller, creating elaborate songs such as Tom Sawyer and Xanadu. Watching him play is a musical experience. My admiration for the trio, inspired me to paint 2112 back... Continue Reading →

After 9 months, my second Physical Graffiti is complete! This was truly a labor of love. IF you haven't had a chance to see the progress I made previous to this, check out what I previously posted here. It tried my creativity, really pushed me to do better than the last Physical Graffiti. I am... Continue Reading →

December, last year, my most ambitious and detailed wood carving of a cover album to date had been sold. Physical Graffiti challenged me like nothing artistically had before and it hung proudly in my wall for 23 years. It was bitter-sweet. I was proud of my work and pleased that someone else was in love... Continue Reading →
