Dj’s Truck, 2015
Acrylic on Panel
11″ x 19″
NFS…commissioned piece for my son

This is a painting of my son, DJ’s Chevy Blazer. I painted this for his grandmother who wanted to give it to him for Christmas. His aunt took the photo, which is great. I really enjoyed this painting. See how I created this painting in the Adventure to Art article Creating DJ’s Truck.

I’ve been practicing art in one form or another for most of my life and have been painting since about 2003. I do explore other medium but primarily use either acrylic or oil paints.

For me art has always been about the enjoyment of drawing and creating. It’s about challenging my eye, my brain, and my hands to recreate what I am seeing on a two dimensional surface.

So far, my paintings have been influenced by anything resembling old boots. In other words, anything that shows it’s character & history in the cracks and creases caused by use and abuse, weathering and age.

Other than that I paint things that are readily available. Anything around the house that looks interesting enough to keep me painting!
