The Conquering of Sin

16" x 20" , 18" x 24" , 16" x 20"

Acrylic 2003

These three pieces make up one final piece. Like God taking form in 3 persons. Like all colors can be derived from 3 (yellow, red, blue). I get a ton of bad looks and comments from this one, let me tell you. I think it hits a nerve with people, Christians alike. In actuality I can't figure out if people get upset because it's a depiction of Jesus on the cross or because it's a depiction of a BROWN Jesus. Let us see him as how he most likely was. These three together on a wall make a powerful statement.

Hills and Valleys of Honey

18" x 24" Acrylic
The female form is a landscape to me. There are hills and there are valleys. Some have bigger hills than others. This is a tribute to the lovely shape of brown women everywhere

Segregated Man

16" x 20" Acrylic
Think we don't live in a segretated society? Think again. What we wear, watch, laugh at, listen to, agree with are segregated. Our schools are segregated. Our neighborhoods are segregated. Our cities are segregated. What we find beautiful is segregated. We are all the same but treat each other as separates, clinging to what we know and what feels comfortable to us.

Someone Call 911

48" x 60" Oil
I could create an entire blog on this one piece alone. The passage reads from Isaiah 29: 15-16 NIV. I omitted the airplanes for a reason and that being because they were not the cause for collapse. 51 and 52 should be obvious if you think about it.

Revealing What Seems Right

20" x 30" Acrylic
Sometimes what looks right on the outside and appears like the "just" thing to do is merely a front for what lies beneath the surface. If it is examined under the right light you can see the hidden agenda beneath.

Long Walk Home

18" x 24" Acrylic

David and Goliath

24" x 36" Acrylic (sold)
I'm not a climber by no means, but I respect those that do it


24" x 36" Acrylic (sold)
I suppose there might a "real" place like this somewhere, but this image came straight from my imagination.


24" x 30" Acrylic (sold)
If you have never see the mountains in Glacier Park, you are really missing something. I was excited to sell it but at the same time sad to see it go, but I know it is in good hands.

The Visitor

16" x 20" Acrylic
This is my "comeback" piece. This was done after 10+ years of not painting or drawing. The title should give you an idea of the perspective you need to take to understand it.
