Twenty-twelve was a prolific year for me. Over that year, I created a stainless steel metal wall art (Ascension) and painted four canvas life-size and more giant fine art nudes, including; Truth, Ascendant, Jubilee, Premier, and Nirvana, and wrapped it up with a series of abstract artworks. Please read my post from 2012 for the complete list.
I love timelines. When it comes to telling a story with pictures, I can think of no better way to show the progression of something. This website’s Art Creation Timeline maps A.D.

Andy Warhol once said, “Art is what you can get away with.” Clearly, he was on to something. With his controversial pop art, he explored the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertisement – and he got away with a lot. Even with his passing in 1987, he is still among the best-selling American artists ever. And today, maybe even more so, he is everywhere in art.
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.
