"Piecing Together the Past"
24 x 32 | oil on aluminum | sold
Painted for the "Homage" show at The Vendue in Charleston, SC.
Show opens April 6th.
Participating artists have been asked to select an artist that has greatly influenced us and then reimagine one of their works in a way that would make them proud.
I have been influenced equally by artists from the distant past and modern contemporary realists.
When I was teaching myself to paint, I replicated "The Old Violin" by William Harnett. This is when I fell in love with the trompe l'oeil style of painting. I soon learned of modern artists that had continued this style in a contemporary realm. (Artists such as Adam Vinson)
When contemplating subject matter for this show, I was torn on which era to pull from, so I decided to combine both.
The Old Violin piece had been such a huge part of my artistic development that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to play with it again.
Dear Facebook friends,
I am attempting to simplify things for myself with how I share my art on social media. Also, Facebook made a change some time ago that dramatically limits circulation of posts for "fan" pages unless the administrator pays for sponsorship. Facebook has otherwise been an incredible, efficient way to directly connect to fans of my work and I would love to keep it that way.
If you would like to continue to follow my work, I encourage you to send me a friend request!
I will be posting a lot less here.

I made a custom frame for this painting, something I plan on doing more often. Very enjoyable for me.
I started this painting about a year ago and put it aside. It came back into my life at just the right moment...
Although this painting sold a couple weeks ago, it will be on display at Robert Lange Studios for the "Attention to Detail" show opening Feb 3rd.
I've been invited by Robert Lange Studios to participate in what could easily be the most exciting show of my career. "Attention to Detail" will feature some of the world's most talented photorealist (no exaggeration). This show will include artists I have admired for as long as I have been interested in art. I never dreamed I would see my name on a list like this...
Show opens February 3rd. 5 - 8 pm
Robert Lange Studios, Charleston SC.
