Super Bowl Sunday!

For years I was a San Francisco 49ers fan. When they hired Jim Harbaugh, I got really caught up in their turn around and the resurrection of Alex Smith's career. After what happened with the team last year, I have mixed feelings. There are some great players on that team. This little painting is of Frank Gore, one of the best and most consistent running backs in the game. Oil on canvas, 24"x 24".

Grad School Miscommunication

I never intended on going to Graduate School. It sort of presented itself and seemed like a good idea at the time. When it started I thought I had a notion of what the experience was going to be, however my expectations and my reality were not the same. The department and the professors were filled with apathy, leaving many of the grad students to fend for themselves. It was sort of like being lost somewhere and all the people you are looking to for help and directions are just as lost as you are. I guess it could be summed up as, "the blind leading the blind."

This little oil painting symbolizes the miscommunications I felt. Oil on Canvas, 26"x 36".

Commission for the Jespersens

This is a recent commission I painted for a great family in SL. Anne is an amazing painter and it was a privilege to paint a painting of her painting. Oil on canvas, 22"x 28".
