  • Happy New Year from the Artist!

    A New medium for 2024!
    As many spray paint artists know, spraying in cold weather just doesn’t work very well. I live in the North East so winter weather often prevents me from painting. This year I decided to try something new in my downtime, painting with watercolors. I am still experimenting with this new-to-me medium and you will start to see some of my work on the website. I hope you enjoy these new paintings as much as I enjoy learning to paint them! Here are a few of my first watercolor paintings…

  • A word from the artist

    Artist blog – July 9, 2023:

    It is hard to believe that my online store now has over 300 paintings for sale!
    You may have also noticed some improvements to the website. I have setup a shop page that allows you to search for paintings by category, price range, keywords, or even in stock items.
    I have finally setup a mailing list so that I can keep my customers up to date with new paintings and specials. I plan to send out an email just once a month so you don’t have to worry about getting spammed. If you haven’t had the chance, please sign up so that I can ensure you don’t miss any of my new artwork.
    While you are here, make sure to check out my new category for laser art, I have been able to achieve some pretty cool detailed artworks on a variety of media with spray paint and lasers.

    Artist blog – September 11, 2021:

    Today marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, let us never forget. I know I never will, I still remember that solemn day like it was yesterday. While we observe this day, let us all take a moment to reflect on the lives lost and the bravery of our first responders who sacrificed their lives to save others. And yes, I did paint a remembrance flag today!
