Our bikes race up and down the gentle hills of Provence.  Everything has a distinct texture, the colors are vibrant, and the perfume in the air is intoxicating.  And every twisting road we turn down has countless rows of purple and blue lavender.  The heat of the Mediterranean sun presses against our backs as we pedal back to the village of Sault.  I'll never forget the fields of France.

This painting would look best in a space that is yellow, orange, blue, white, or beige

I have stayed here for several days.  Alone in the wilderness with only the things I can carry in my backpack.  I've been rationing my food and water to extend my time here.  There's an intensity to the evening sun that is counter-balanced by the darkness of the soil.  A delicate harmony to everything.

This piece would work in a space that is burnt orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or a neutral beige

I only fed him one time.  Now, I can't get rid of him.  He hangs on my screen door begging me for more peanut butter.  I'm no longer able to go in the backyard.  Yet, I find the whole thing entertaining.

This painting would great in a space that is light orange, yellow, blue, navy, deep red, or gray.

Where I'm From

Where I'm from reveals who I am.  A small working class town on the shores of western Michigan during industrial decline.  Families packing up and leaving for far off places just for the opportunity to work at a decent wage.  But that struggle has made the community stronger as it fights to revive downtown with new shops, residences, and breweries.  Sometimes it's best to be the underdog.

This drawing would look best in almost any space with it's neutral tones.  The paper is a light pink hue.
