Southwest Art Magazine
Wow, what an honor, my painting, "Will Work for a Better Future for My Family" part of my series, "Will Work For", was judged to be included in Artist's Magazine worldwide competition and highlighted in the January issue of Southwest Art. Please go out and find a copy :-)
Im very proud of this series and am so happy that the series is finding outlets for expression. Ive recently moved to Savannah, to teach at SCAD Savannah College of Art and Design and have started working on new images from the area.
Baker Mayfield Portrait
I was asked to help and be a part of this incredible project to celebrate the win of OU's newest Heisman recipient, Baker Mayfield, for Sooner Sports. It happened quickly. I received a call and asked if I could paint a portrait, while cameras recorded the process, so that it could be mixed with action footage of Mayfield's incredible season. I was excited, and felt it would be a challenge. I arrived at Headington Hall, on the top floor of the OU campus and started setting up my easel and canvas as the cameramen started setting up their equipment. The at around 10;45, I started the process and painted nonstop for about 2 hours until I placed my signature mark in the lower right corner. Not bad for a few hours work.
