"...But A Lifetime to Paint Like A Child"

“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child” -Pablo Picasso (My new studio assistant, Erica McRay)

"In Memorial of the Lives Lost on September 11th"

"When the Saints Go Marching In"
acrylic on canvas 48x60

"When the Saints Go Marching In" was a large scale jazz piece created in honor of the souls lost on 911. When many artists chose to focus on carnage. In memorial of the lives lost on September 11th, I chose to instead view it like a New Orleans funeral where raucous music and cathartic dancing celebrate the lives of the deceased.

"They are Hung Primarily in Kitchens, Dining Rooms, Breakfast Nooks, and Over Computer Desks"

Today Bob picked up his painting, "Chocolate & Chocolate". For all those who think these "Aroma" paintings are hung only in coffee shops. Believe or not, they are hung primarily in kitchens, dining rooms, breakfast nooks, and over computer desks.
