This is a satirical homage to a Grant Wood painting, <i>American Gothic</i>. This is acrylic on canvas, 30x30 inches created in 2012. It is currently on display in Domestic restaurant in Shepherdstown, WV and was created with the farm-to-table restaurant in mind. In this version, <i>American Gothic IV: the Reaping</i>, I wanted to play with gender roles and tradition. The idea of the restaurant was to reinvision American classics. <i>The Emperor has no Hair</i>, 24x30, acrylic on canvas 2017, self explanatory. <i>Deus Sit Propitius Huic Potatori</i>, a title taken from the Archpoet, a still life created in 2013 at a bar I used to tend. 22x28 Portrait of my old puppy, Buca from 2013. Acrylic and oil on canvas, 18x22 <i>The inelasticity of demand</i> states that we will never be happy with what we have. Oil  and acrylic on canvas 30x24 from 2012. The infamous Rusty Squeezebox, oil and acrylic on canvas 22x28 from 2013.
<i>Smoker no. 1</i>, oil on canvas 18x24, 2018. A new series, in progress, of pretty girls who indulge in cigarettes. While this was once considered classy or affluent as recently as 20 years ago, it now ellicits a much different response from the viewer. <i>Smoker no. 2</i>, oil on canvas 18x24, 2018. Second in the smoker series, this is a portrait of Brody Dalle, formerly of the band the Distillers. <i>Permeablility</i>, oil and acrylic on canvas, 32x28, 2013. My heart is sensitive to outside influences. <i>Crabbing</i>, acrylic on canvas, 32x32, 2011. A work created for my sister to commemorate one of our favorite childhood events. <i>Courtship for Cuckolds</i>, oil on canvas, 28x24, 2010. Not a big fan of dating and the games associated. <i>Gnostics</i>, inspired by the Arab Spring and the impact of twitter. Oil on canvas 22x28, 2011.
This piece, 'Jazz Cigarettes' won second place at a juried exhibit at Shepherd University in 2014. iT is a first in a series concerning a post-humous collaboration between myself and my friends deceased grandmother. She was a newly active painter in her retirement community and her family was left with a surplus of canvases and work from before she passed away. Rather than totally erase her efforts, I wanted to incorporate some of her abstract and expressive work into some of my own. <i>PIGS or the shallow pursuit of wealth and fame</i>, multi-media on canvas 36x28, 2018. My favorite genre for painting is Neo-Dada. It suits my personality and view of the world. Wealth and fame are the guise in which the youth are being enslaved under. <i>High Society</i>, 28x24, 2013, oil on canvas. A project from college where we had to interpret a random idea for a piece. <i>OK Commuter</i>, oil on canvas, 42x24, 2013. This piece bothers me because the earlier versions were much better. One of the hardest lessons that I have had to learn as a painter is when to stop. My work is generally very expressive and painterly and is mostly better delivered when not over-worked. <i>Mecklenburg Inn</i>, 2012, acrylic on board, 18x24. One of my favortie haunts from college. <i>Carnivorous</i>, acrylic on board 18x24, 2018. A piece created for my vegetarian friend. <i>Brando</I> A portrait of Marlon Brando done in oil on canvas, from 2017,  that is very glossy and hard to photograph! I recently have returned to my roots of classical realism because I think that people forgot I could do such things. More of my recent work to this point has been very contemporary and modern and did not necessarily showcase my ability to work traditionally. I hoped this piece would serve as bait to attract more commission work.
