I think it's about time I got caught up here, and to start off, I'd like to share a painting that is special to me. It is the very first painting of mine that was ever framed.

I painted it, in oils, when I was 15 years old. It was a rough time... and all that emotion and passion flowed out of me to the canvas through that brush.

My Mom recognized something in it... and took me to Aaron Brothers, in downtown Los Angeles, California, to have it professionally framed. It was quite the experience for me.

Happy Painting,


  1. Hey love that white tiger you have up! The circus tiger I got to stand with was the orange kind but they are just so majestic. You've got a great pose there too!

  2. Gee, forgot to mention the one in the post too. Wow at that age making art with that level of power, that is impressive.

    That really does deserve a frame for many reasons.
