The Water dance Series

Reverse paintings on glass, a popular technique from the turn of the century.  Paint is applied on the back of the glass so you are actually painting backwards.  Because I am dyslexic this came easy for me.  I take my photos and turn them into paintings. 

Spirit ride

     This project was the journey of a little girl who was told by mother earth through an angel to follow the river and collect 3 doves from individuals that were on their life's journey when they understood what there purpose was they received a dove, meaning their peace, and gave it to the little girl.  She was then to return to ruins in a wooded area by a stream were a ancient foundation still stood, no walls, but windows still hung with paintings of each person that gave the little girl a dove though the window their story remain. I weaved these black and white and some color stills into an art film but was never able to finish what was in my mind but still it  stands on it's own in originality and depth.  You can buy the DVD by clicking the red button or purchase the art. 

My Taylor Guitar that was stolen out of my house in Topanga Canyon on Christmas Eve years ago.  If anyone has seen this guitar, please contact me. You can't miss its distinctive oil painting of the WOLF.  This was my first guitar so it means a lot to me.  -Thank you

guitart = guitar art


I think I love singing and writing songs with my guitars more than anything else that I do, and I love vintage guitars.  So I went out and shot my guitars differently than you have seen before and I call this expose GUITART.

postcards from the APOCALYPSE​​​


Winter 2013, I had the good fortune of landing in South Carolina where four year old Isabella and thirteen year old Madison worked with me to create a mountain of art I call Post Cards from the Apocalypse. Together we painted images that told a story of destruction and chaos but through art and nature these two young artists find peace and calm through the storm.  My Great Dane, Cowboy, came to me from Isabella's grandmother, Dianne Gwinn.  Diane helped me find locations once she learned what I liked; she was so helpful and a joy to work with.

This is in my most artistic project to date. Working with this amazing artist for one full year, 52 photo shoots, 3000 images, all black and white film - no digital dance here. For now she chooses to stay anonymous.  Not to mention she took the whole project hostage.

This film is finished and many are calling it a masterpiece but it does not follow any rules.  I put my heart and soul into this film.  It is not out, as it needs to be marketed correctly and needs money behind it.  Watch the teaser and trailer on the web site which by the way is just the tip of the iceberg.  Also you can listen to the sound bites on the website with visuals that did not make it into the film.

            As you know, bodybuilding has been a passion and a path to my success.  David Paul has captured the essence of the sport and at the same time redefined it in a spectacular fashion in this book.  Raw power transformed to art – I love it.
