New Painting - "Resting on the Ancients" & Post Spectrum

Hey guys, just came back from an awesome weekend in Kansas City at Spectrum Fantastic LIVE. Met lots of great artists and had some of the best conversations with the people at the event. Thank you everyone who bought prints and who came out to say hello, as well as the awesome awards ceremony put on by the Spectrum crew! It was great seeing old friends as well as meeting new ones.

It was especially great hanging out with great people and talents like Ryan Graff, Eric Fortune, Joao Ruas, Eric Joyner, Felipe Echevarria, Jeff Simpson, Keita Morimoto, Jason Felix, Justin Gerard, Cory Godbey, Jason Edmiston, Anthony Kosak, Wayne Reynolds, Travis Louie, Brandt Peters, Kathy Olivas, Doug Gregory, Greg Manchess, and Jean Baptiste Monge. There may have been many more, I apologize if I missed any names.

I am looking forward to next year when they put on another Spectrum LIVE event again. Things are busy after I got back and have a few deadlines, I will be posting and sharing some Spectrum photos that I took at the event, hopefully really soon.

Below is a painting I had at the event, that I can finally show now.

"From Then To Now" Oil Painting & Spectrum Fantastic Art LIVE!

"From Then To Now"
8'' x 10''
Oils and Gold Leaf on Wood

Here is a new Oil Painting I recently finished and varnished.


The idea of this piece is to juxtapose new and old culture, the traditional japanese elegant kimono with contemporary earphones as a western oil painting. How the times have changed, but some things remain to be remembered. 

Thank you to Spectrum, this will be included in their upcoming 19th Annual.
I will also be displaying it at the Spectrum Fantastic Art LIVE Event coming up in Kansas City on May 18-20 (This weekend).
