One of Toil and Blood

One of Toil and Blood, 36"x 72" diptych, oil on canvas.

Paul Davis challenged me to paint the same thing twice, approaching one in a conservative manner and the other in a gutsy fashion. I tried it a few times, but never really committed to it. So after all these years I went all in on this one. I now understand what Paul was trying to teach me.

Helper, 48"x 48", oil on canvas

I became interested in paintings trains and laborers after participating in a show that was based on living in the small town of Helper, Utah. I have a lot of respect for those who get up everyday, roll up their sleeves and go out into the world to make a better life for their loved ones.

Took Thence a Stone

"Took Thence a Stone", 48"x 48", oil on canvas.

As I painted this piece, I reflected on the Aesop fable about the Lion and the Mouse. Sometimes the small or the weak are deemed inconsequential in this big world we live in. Sometimes, though, it is someone from that category who steps in and saves the day.
