Enduring and timeless, my original paintings preserve and celebrate my ideals of beauty and honor the grace, strength, and complexity of the female spirit. I direct my creative energies at producing epic original fine art nude and figurative artworks on specially prepared canvas, metal, and mixed media. Most are painted life-size and larger, featuring a contemporary approach to the time-honored figurative and art nude genres. My imagery bursts out of traditional art forms, leaving viewers appreciating its beauty, detail, and sensual nature.
I met Barry in the late 1980s when we were introduced by a mutual friend. Our shared passion for art immediately united us as life-long friends; over the years, we’ve watched each other grow as artists. Barry’s art delves into the mysteries of the unknown, forever exploring color, texture, and the underlying emotions brought forth by art and the creative process.
Leave it to the crew at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson to create a fun-filled family event. Celebrity Illusionist Seth Grabel put on a great show for an awesome crowd, amazing everyone with his appearing Harley illusion, along with card tricks and his impressive ability to get out of a straight jacket.
You learn a lot about someone over a lifetime of creative endeavors in this journey we call life. Raphael, or “Raf” to his friends, has been a dear friend of mine and an inspiration since our first encounter when we were introduced by our mutual friend, artist Michael Cacy, in the late 1980s. Back then, I was painting the larger-than-life Hollywood Video murals. Raf was creating beautifully detailed airbrushed illustrations.
The best Super Bowl party ever. Not to discount previous Super Bowl parties because they’re all great in their own way, but this one was different. Mostly, in the past, I’ve gone to friends’ homes for Super Bowl parties. I always enjoy those. I’m sure you do, too… hanging with friends, meeting new people, and catching up. Although, in reality, a lot of times, they’re more party than a game. Good times, though – all of them.
