“Trinity” Comes Home – A Drawing With History

"Trinity" At Home

“Trinity” took me over 50 hours to draw and has always been one of my all time favorites. I sold it back around 2005 I think … maybe ’06 or ’07. I may not remember the date but I remember the lady who bought it and that “moment” clearly. I was happy to have sold it but sad to see … Read More

Party Barge & Car Surfing In Daytona Beach (1986)

It was 1986. Somehow I ended up with a group of guys at school sanding down an old short school bus two of them (brothers) had gotten as a Spring Break present from their Dad.

Resisting The Grace Police

While I am thoroughly enjoying my current season of learning more of the true depth of the finished work of Christ and grace, I am not enjoying some of the private interactions I have had with people worried that I am on a slow slide to heresy and hell.
