Painter, outlaw, victim of squirrel treachery. Currently hiding out in Richmond, Virginia. And I am already ready to move again...

I am willing to work from photos of models; if you would like to see one of your images translated into paint, please let me know. Please be aware that any paintings completed by me in this fashion will be intended for commercial use, to be sold or otherwise reproduced as fine art prints, etc. As a result, please ensure that you have legal rights to the image and understand that I will require a written release from the copyright holder.

Any comments on my work are greatly appreciated. Please be constructive in your criticisms, but don't be afraid to state hard truths; pointing out my problem areas will only help me to improve my craft.

Thank you for visiting my deviantART page. I hope you will also take a moment to visit my gallery at and leave a comment, or my facebook fan page at and "Like" or follow my work there (my facebook page has regular updates, along with images of drawings and sketches not posted elsewhere).

Be blessed, and thank you for your time and kind attention.

Well, it's been an eventful, stressful and largely unproductive ten days.

I was rather unceremoniously ejected from both my home and studio; I don't even have access to my tools and supplies at present so everything I had in the works is on hold for at least the next two weeks while I make arrangements to get it packed and moved.

Meantime, I'm kinda outdoors. An ex-girlfriend was kind enough to take me in, but you can imagine the tension that's been causing (we both have a lot of very volatile unresolved emotion, and sometimes it's hard to look in her eyes).

Painting is the only stress valve I possess (I have some long term injuries; a life of violence and debauchery is somewhat overrated and nothing like what you see in the movies) so being separated from work for this long has been difficult, to say the least...

But this is just a low place that I need to pass through before I can start climbing again. I've learned that victory in living isn't won by being able to say how many times its knocked down. It's about how many times you stand back up.
