First of all I would like to wish all of my wonderful, amazing followers a HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR! It has been an amazing and creative past year for me and I hope the same for 2015! I have produced the two magnificent, large scale oil painting masterpieces, "THE RAVEN" and "SACRIFICIAL LAMB", along with a smaller, but equally compelling piece, "LOVE AND DEATH"! These works of art are not only amazing due to my artistic talent and the spiritual meaning behind these works, but also because they were "created" under VERY difficult circumstances. My oil painting, "THE RAVEN" was painted day and night during a horribly cold winter in my freezing basement studio. My oil pastel drawing, "LOVE AND DEATH" was created while I was healing from an injured arm in a terrible fall. My painting, "SACRIFICIAL LAMB" was created during a period filled with personal problems and conflicts. However, ALL of these works of art were successfully executed and completed. You see a "true" artist will see these obstacles as a challenge to be "overcome" and NOT be "defeated"! Most important, if you have faith in God, he will stand with you and guide you through these obstacles and will be there waiting for you with a smile on his face because he knew all along that you would come out on the other side victorious! GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND STAY TUNED TO THIS WEBSITE! MARVELOUS THINGS YET TO COME!
