Summer 2018

More wood burning from Williams Bay, WI. My latest pyrography is for my mother, I’m doing lake theme images on her wooden TV tables.


New Painting in progress:

I’m back in my original studio in Williams Bay. Hello from the basement!

I received a Commission from the Aurora University Veterans Association to paint a 6′ by 4′ canvass for Veterans Day. It will represent the Korean War conflict. I’m partially done and everything seems to be going well. Join in as I work on my largest military inspired piece.

I completed the piece one hour into my Alive Day. I was wounded on September 7th 2005.

One final inspection by Mazy D!, before the send off and delivery to AUVA.

Painting with ground Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan. I used material from one combat zone for the image of another. While I was deployed I collected several pounds of Lapis Lazuli. I ground the unpolished rocks into a powder. It was therapeutic, and I’ve been making paint from the fine blue dust ever since.
