One of the things these photos don't show you is how thick the paint is and how much texture there is in this painting. Many of my collectors have commented that they like this about my paintings and liked the paintings even more after they saw them in person.

The size of this painting is a standard US frame size so you could easily buy an inexpensive frame on line, or a photo frame at a drug store or thrift store or an art supply store.

Here's a quick bio:

I was born in Brooklyn February of 1965. During much of my childhood I lived in Brooklyn the Bronx, upstate NY, Sarasota Florida and Manhattan. (Both my mother and father divorced and remarried.) The real hero of my childhood is my older brother Marc who literally changed my diapers, taught me how to do all the things a person should know how to do.

I started to learn to paint and draw when I was six or seven years old.

As a young adult at the High School of Art and Design I dabbled in non-traditional relationships, drugs, museums. I also began to learn to paint in the classrooms of Irwin Greenburg who taught me how to oil and watercolor.

After dropping out of the High School, I worked construction demolishing the interiors and renovating buildings on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I was having a rough emotional time and once again my older brother and his partner Kirk rescued when they invited me to move to Cincinnati Ohio with them. I worked as a cook in a Pizza Place on Mount Adams, studied during the day and painted as much as I could. After a year of college at the University of Cincinnati I went back to the Bronx where I finished college at CUNY Lehman. A fantastic college.

After completing my undergraduate studies, I went on to travel to California and Ohio to complete my graduate studies.

Since 2014 or so I’ve stopped working galleries, mainly because I wanted to sell paintings at lower prices. I also like building a more personal relationship with my collectors. This change also allowed me to focus on themes that Hang Gallery in San Francisco, dropped me for, and the STRS Gallery in Sacrament censored. (Sexual charged paintings of men and women mainly from a gay/queer/homoerotic point of view.)

After 17 years of teaching art history and studio courses at Ohlone College in Fremont, California I retired in June 2016 to pursue painting full time.
