A horse with a white coat, mane and tail gazes at you with deep blue eyes. It stands in stark contrast to the darkness all around it. At it’s feet a shallow pool of water reflects the whiteness of the horse in it’s ripples.
Generally, my horse themed works are “loud” and “dirty” that is full of action with dust and dirt being kicked up. For this one I wanted pure and quiet. So I went with a white coat, and had the animal stand in water rather than on a dusty plain.

In the darkest part of the forest, a creepy green man with pointy ears and an oddly inhuman face reclines in a hammock that appears to be made from flesh. He is the fruit vendor in the Goblin Market. Around him are barrels and buckets full of his strange stock. Behind him a little blue dragon stands watch for shoplifters.
This is a work I had actually made made years before I published it. I started it, but then forgot about until I one day found it while trying to clean up my hard drive. It’s based on the poem “The Goblin Market” by Christina Rossetti. It’s about two sisters and what befalls them when one of them buys fruit from the Goblin market. The author apparently intended it for children, but the imagery in it can be construed as very adult.
I just published my latest wolf art. Entitled “The Staring Contest“, it features a trio of wolves trying to make the viewer feel a bit uncomfortable with their intense gaze.
This is the latest addition to my wolf art series. It was my New Years resolution to add a lot more works to that particular series this year and this is the second one so far. If you’re curios, the first was “Timber Wolf“.

Here’s a work I put together a few years ago. I’m including it in my blog today as I’m working on adding a couple of my ship themed works to the gallery over the next couple of days….
A fleet of heavily armed ships emgerges from the fog. Led by the massive ship of the line HMS Victory, they create a forest of sails in the ocean that dissappears into the distance. Around them, the choppy sea roils as they crash through the waves towards the viewer.
When I was growing up, my parents had a print of two ships shooting it out, and I always rather liked it. Marine warfare themed art is, of course, an extremely common subject. So I’ve seen quite a bit of it. I’ve experimented a bit by creating works featuring the HMS Victory, but this was the first time I’ve tried multiple ships.

Autumn leaves cover the surface of a board walk that cuts through a sun lit forest. It’s late and the afternoon and the low sun casts shadows across the hiking trail. The small trees that line the path arch over the wooden walkway with golden leaves that they seem reluctant to surrender to the fall.
This is an impressionist styled photograph of a hiking area of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area at Johnson Ferry in north Atlanta. Taken in the fall of 2017 late on a Saturday afternoon, I’ve done a ton of post-processing using Topaz Studio with the Impression plugin to give it that Monet/Renoir look.

Here is an impressionist styled artwork depicting Rottenwood Creek winding through the woods of North Atlanta on a fall day. The creek empties into the Chattahoochee river only a few hundred yards behind the viewer.
This is from a photograph that I took in November of 2017. The area is actually a dense urban part of Atlanta right where I-75 and I-285 meet. However, the areas around the river have been kept natural. This is a popular fishing spot in the north Metro Atlanta area as well as the location of a rather new park. To the north of this area is Bull Sluice lake which is created by Morgan Falls dam.
I heavily post processed the photo using Topaz Studio with particular use of the Impression plugin to give it the Monet -like impressionist painting look.
The Chattahoochee river winds through autumn colored trees in this impressionist styled art.
This is from a photograph that I took in November of 2017 just south of the Morgan Falls dam on the Chattahoochee river. This is a popular fishing spot in the north Metro Atlanta area as well as the location of a rather new Park. To the north of this area is Bull Sluice lake which is created by the dam.
I took the photo at evening just a few minutes before sunset when the sunlight was reflecting off the bottom of the clouds. There were a number of fisherman around me, but I managed to get an angle were they weren’t in the frame.
