March Update

Hey everyone. Been traveling a bit and have been able to work with some wonderful people. Been making some good art out of it all so I’d thought I’d share some pics with you. All these paintings are 3ftx4ft acrylic paintings created within an hour in front of an audience…..



In Houston, I’ve been collaborating with a Catholic Ministry called Adore.  They put on a monthly worship event involving ancient traditions and contemporary practices. They invited me to join them and we got written up in the Houston Chronicle. See the images… Houston Chronicle Article


ABC is asking for fans of LOST to upload the art they have made based on the show. I uploaded my Saints of LOST images and you can see them with some other stellar work.    SEE THE WALL


My friend Margaret Feinberg interviewed me about my artist in residency at Ecclesia Church. Margaret is the author of many great books, including her latest “Scouting The Divine” which I just read and loved.   Read Interview


I’m putting into  play a project I’ve been pondering about for awhile. I’m going to Liberia and Swaziland this summer and I plan on doing art projects with orphans which will then be made into products that will raise money for orphanages over there. It’s a huge project and if you’d like to know more please click – orphanartproject

Thanks for caring!

February Ya’ll

Hey ya’ll. I’m getting used to Texan speak and “ya’ll” is a pretty common descriptor. So enjoy. I finally feel like I’m at a place where I can take a little breather so I thought I’d post some pics and play a little catch up.

Above is a pic of me painting at a Haiti benefit concert with Derek Webb at Taft St Coffee.  A really great non-profit in town called I Am Change put on the show and I offered my services to the whole event. It was great working with Derek again and the paintings raised some good money for a good cause.

Let’s back up a bit and talk about Urbana09.

At the end of December I worked with WorldVision ACT:S in producing an interactive art station that dealt with creative advocacy. Everyday, attendees had the opportunity to be a part of creating an art piece that corresponded with the themes of that day and also in response to what they had witnessed as they went through WorldVision ACT:S booth. It was an awesome time. The art pieces turned out great.  And I met some fantastic people. I’m working on a video currently and will have that posted in due time…..

Live Paintings at Youth Conferences…..

I did a couple gigs with students in Tennessee and West Texas. Here’s some images from that…..

Saints of LOST Opening At Xnihilo Gallery, Houston, TX

Even though the show was up for two weeks, we still had an opening for the Saints of LOST show in Xnihilo Gallery at Taft on the 30th. We decided this night cause the season premiere of season 6 of LOST is on tuesday…. so we wanted to build on the hype as much as we could. In order to sweeten the pot a little bit, i decided to make a new painting for the show. This one is about Charlie… and it turned out awesome. A better picture will be uploaded sometime…. but here it is….

It’s 5ftx4ft, acrylic on canvas. the title is still undecided.

It was a great night. We had a lot of people show up. It was pretty steady for 3 hours…. and i found myself talking to people non-stop throughout the evening. That’s about it. Go lost!

okay… this post is long enough. lots still coming up. i’ll try to post more often.
