  I am an emerging artist striving to find "the light" in my paintings as well as my life. I am the father of three boys, husband of one wife and Keeper of the Flame.
       I have always been fascinated by the interplay of light and shadow. How our perception of an object is determined by the amount of light it receives. From the brightest highlight to the deepest shade, the gradation of values reveal its' true nature.
       My own true nature is likewise revealed by the amount of light shown on it. The source of my light is Jesus Christ. The dark shadows of my life are my own sins and the gradation of values make up who I am.
      The object of this blog first and foremost is to put into words some of the thought and process that goes into my art, hopefully resulting in a greater understanding of what it is I do and why I do it. Along the way I hope to share some of the things that have influenced me and whatever I might come across that might be helpful, humorous or just plain whack.
