One Love

One Love

48" X 48" Acrylic, paint skin, glue, resin, and shellac. I was commissioned to paint this as a Fathers Day present for a family who had recently lost their two year old son to a tragic illness. The five intertwined circles represent the members of the family. It also says "One Love" and "all of our love channelled through him and all his love channeled through us" which was something of a mantra for the mom and dad as they held vigil for their sick child.

A Life That Matters

A Life That Matters

30" x 40" Acrylic, resin, stain and shellac on canvas. This was the first painting that I ever donated. It was for an auction at my sons' elementary school. The theme of the auction was "Peace". I was vey literal and painted an olive branch, a dove and a peace symbol. The painting now hangs in the living room of a very nice family from the school.

Fellowship and Sharing

I painted this canvas for my daughter's preschool fundraiser. It now hangs in the dining room of one of the parents from the school. To this day its the prettiest picture I have painted.

Prick from and Old Rose

Prick from and Old Rose

I used wood and glue on canvas to create this dramatic painting with a lot of texture. When you look closely below the rose you can see a large red gash (wound) from the rose. The most dramatic of my canvas work and at 30" x 40" it is a really good size.

Fuse

48" X 48". Plaster,acrylic, latex resin, stain and shellac on canvas. This was my attempt to translate what I create with wood (paintsculptor.com) onto the canvas.

7' x 3'. Acrylic on wood panel. Inspired by the art of Steph Han with some added decorative elements of my design.

Stay With Me

Stay With Me

I also painted this for a preschool fundraiser. Unfortunately I didn't get a proper photo of this before it was donated. I used plaster on canvas and then chipped the plaster off. Then painted it in acrylics and covered the whole thing in resin to hold the plaster to the canvas
