Cheers, 2017. Thanks for most of the things -

Here's what I say Thank You for:

When I was "yay-high" I thought I was going to be a pencil artist. I wanted to draw comic books and live in stories. Something happened - life, puberty, the News channels... I don't know what, just 'something' and all that changed. 

I didn't find a platform for creativity - a place to drain my energy - until I was halfway through my career in the military. I realize now that I was waay off course back then.

When I say Thank You, I'm thanking you for lending me the means to get here. 

You know, Jim Rohn said that if you want to get ahead you've got to set a better sail, keep it maintained and stay sharp for course corrections. However, a ship doesn't vector without the wind and it sure as hell doesn't float without the water. 

Thank you for being those things for me. Your patronage and your support enabled me to create the eight pieces laid out below.

Cheers to uphill journies- the view is always better as you go.

I just can't stop falling in love with her and Avendasora. I captured this in Seattle but it feels like far and away. Keep reading...

Tree of Fire is one of my newest creations this year and my first image in medium format. There's no going back for me.

White Mountain Oh Canadian Rockies, I see you reflected in me. You deserve so much more than these small bits of justice. Read more.

Avendasora Leaf -

In everyone's heart there is a clear space that bleeds love and light. If you know not where it lie, seek it in nature. See more

Avendasora

It's the color of action. The color of love and the color of passion. It is the color or rage that blooms behind your eyes. It is the color of lust her hands leave on your thigh. It is the fire in a peace that's ready for war. It is the pounding of your heart ever more, ever more. Read more.

Eternity Beach

Eternity beach wasn't captured in 2017, it just took me five years to finish. Read about my first ever photograph >>here<<.

Eatings and Greetings - Turkey Day 2017

I have actually been practicing

being thankful. Admittedly, I'm bad at it. Bad at remembering to practice. Poor, even, at recognizing the gifts I have in plentitude. 

I am thankful for... A) that you have opened this email- you're part of a slim 20% that do. & B) That, for a change, I won't be eating spaghetti at home and watching a movie this year. Though, it's been a 'thing' long enough to be considered a tradition by now. 

While I won't be doing any sort of holiday sales this year I do have some things to look forward to for you. 

AVENDASORA - I am in love with this new piece and I will be releasing it in email and social media on the 1st of December. Some of you may have seen previews of her already. She has me in a trance and is certainly this year's masterpiece. 

DECEMBER 4TH, an inauspicious Monday, is about the cut off for ordering a piece for Christmas. After that, I'm not 100% positive that I will be able to get it to you by the big day, especially if you want it framed.
