After struggling internally on weather I should continue to do local shows. The problem I was facing was developing quality work. I would rush to produce work just to be in the show. A lof of these old pieces I am destroying/painting over. I realized that I didn’t like the piece and they would be better served for creating new pieces. Here is one of the new peices that I just finished and I am extremely happy with, hope you enjoy.

Here are a few more that have been done during the past year. One of my favorites is the GEO THERMAL, I was inspired by the National Geo Graphic Sat images of the rain forest, they had them in a 3D view showing the terra forms. Hope you enjoy

Sorry for the big ©RLF on the art work. I was a victim of art theft a while back. A group of art pirates from China had gone to my website and stole several images and posted them on etsy.com & Ebay. I received an email from etsy.com saying they had closed the account and were trying to track down the parties responsible. The lady at etsy.com told me that they probably took images from my site and had artsits reproduce my work (Rip off paintings of my work), then they would digitally capture the art and offer giclee prints at reduced prices. Apparently etsy.com has software that is like facial recon and will search the internet for images that match the submissions they get, that is how they found my pirated work on their site and they were kind enough to contact Ebay about the work being stolen and forged. I am working on a certificate of authenticity… more to come..

I have always loved FISH, they are colorful, graceful they come in every size, shape and color. Fish are one of the non abstract subject matters that I really enjoy creating with traditional methods (oil & acrylic – water color and Digital). Some of my biggest selling pieces have been my digital Koi. Here are few of my Fish, more can be viewed on my web site by clicking here.

Rarely do I share insight to my work before its complete, I will if I have studio visits or buyers who have commisioned a piece and want to see it as it progresses. This painting was started in spring of 2006 and has set in a quasi finished state waiting for completion. Lastnight the vision came for its completion. Here is a glimpse of the “King Arthur’s Succession” – soon to be completed. This is a partial view.

Rarely do we get to collaborate or work together on a project together and get better than expeted results. Fellow artist Jason Fondren brought over a painting that he hasd been working on and he felt that he could no take piece any further and asked if I wanted to see what I could come up with. “Sure!” , I set the painting up in my studio and looked at everday for about two weeks. Then one day I contributed what I could and called the piece finished. The end result has been described by some as woman from an ANN RICE book or woman who enjoys pushing her sexuality to the extreme. You decide for yourself, for myself I see a woman who has a smile that says you will never break me down and you will never own me.

With the Fall comes creative inspiration. The long summer days surpress the creative river that flows underneath always waiting to be unleashed. Then that first cold front that comes in unleashes the creative river. Here are a few paintings from my recent latenight painting sessions.

Started on a new series – Called “Picnic in the Jungle”, these have been greatly influenced by the Avnat Garde Band the RESIDENTS. There will be a total of 10 paintings in this series and each one will be direclty related to a paticular Resident song. This is the first time I have attempted this form of creative expression, my paintings are never pre-planed. I usually start painting and what happens.. happens. I have been wanting to do something related to the RESIDENTS for a long time and this avenue seems to be the best way for me to express this. I have been listening to the RESIDENTS since I was 8, starting in 1977 watching their videos on NIGHTFLIGHT (showed music videos and music based movies late night on weekends). Here is the first painting titled: “PICNIC IN THE JUNGLE” – Size: 48″ x 30″ – Medium: Oil on Canvas. Questions regarding purchase please email me by click here. Enjoy!
