40 Days of Celebration: Magical Beast #3

 It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when the horned beings began to appear in my work. Xabal Enthroned really marks a beginning of sorts. 


Xabal Enthroned, 2013.48 x 48 inches (120 cm x 120 cm)  Mixed-Media on Linen.

At first they appeared to be crowns or some sort of ceremonial head-dress. Then, through several other paintings they took their true form.
Livol, 2014.  63 x 48 inches (160 cm x 120 cm)  Mixed-Media on Canvas.


Without question, a horned being seems bigger, stronger, and more fierce.

Today’s “Magical Creature”…




Magical Beast #3, 2015. 
Watercolor and Gouache on Paper. 
5 x 8 inches. $400.

40 Days of Celebration and "Forty Magical Beasts"

Greetings from Miami!

You know how some people aren’t into celebrating their birthdays?

I am NOT one of those people.


Yesterday was my 40th birthday! 

Every year I take a trip for my birthday. (New York City, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin…) This year I gave myself….. a month in Miami.


My beautiful, temporary studio near the beach.

And while every birthday feels like an amazing gift to celebrated, this year seems extra special. It feels symbolic. It feels important. It just feels……BIG.

Since ancient times, 40 has always been a powerful number endowed with mysterious, sacred significance. As I celebrate my 40th trip around the sun, I want to share something meaningful to mark this moment.



For the next 40 days I’ll be sharing images of
 "Forty Magical Beasts". Each priced at $400.


Magical Beast #1, 2015.  Mixed-Media on Paper.  5 x 8 inches.


I usually keep these small drawings for myself as a visual diary of sorts, but on the occasion of my 40th birthday I've decided it would be a joy to release them into the world.

For the next 40 days you’ll have the chance to purchase a new work which represents a raw, unfettered peek into my inner world. These sketches and studies are my way of working out not just formal and visual ideas, but also narratives and personal meaning.


The Details:

Each un-framed work measures approximately 8 x 5 inches and is composed of layers of gouache, watercolor, graphite, and acrylic paint on fine grain, cold-press watercolor paper. Shipping is free in the US (except for Hawaii and Alaska) and payment can be taken via credit card or by PAYPAL.


You can contact me by email or the amazing staff at Morton Fine Art for shipping and payment information.

In my experience, there’s an immediacy and vibrant energy that can only come from working quickly with abandon. Given the opportunity, power and beauty thrive in this uninhibited internal space. 

No noise. No censor. Only movement and pure spirit.

That’s where these works were born.

I can’t wait to share them with you.

BIG Love x 40,

Living With Art: Beyond "Art to Match the Sofa".

Last month my artwork was featured in DC by Design in an incredible kitchen transformation by designer Sheryl Scruggs, the owner of DC-based Bronze Interiors.
 It’s one thing to see my artwork in a gallery or museum setting, but I truly enjoy seeing how one of my pieces will live in a space once it becomes part of a person’s collection.



Amazing interior images by Washington DC based photographer Morgan Howarth.


Many artists and collectors thumb their noses at the idea of buying “art to match a sofa”, but for a designer the entire room becomes a work of art. Harmony and balance can be key elements in creating a painting as well as creating a beautiful living space. 


Solii's Journey Home, 2014.  Mixed-Media on Linen. 48 x 48 inches.  


Solii’s Journey Home is an especially lovely choice for this kitchen area. A painting with this much visual weight is definitely more than d├ęcor.  The larger works in the Guardian series really do become a physical presence in the room. Even while I was working on them in the studio I always had the sense that I was being kept company.



The entire point of buying original art is to be able to see and enjoy the artworks you own as much as possible. I can’t think of a better way to add beauty and meaning to the over-all environment. 

BIG Love,
