This past monday we decided to put our dog (son) Oliver to sleep. He was 10, had an ear infection, a large tumor growing under his left ear, skin allergies, and cancer. It was a hard decision but a wise one. We wanted to let him go as long as he could, but in the end I think that was selfish on our part, just not wanting to let go. The last few nights we notice he could not get a good night sleep he would constantly walk around to find a comfortable spot, sometimes disoriented walking into walls. He also slowly start losing control over his bladder urinating up to two or three times on the floor in one night. Because of his ear infection he had a strong odor which I'm finding that I am missing, who knew the thought of a strong odor would make you have such wonderful memories. If all dogs go to heaven, the angels owe us BIG time. To Oliver you will be missed but not forgotten.

Here are a few of the images that were taken on our vacation in the mountains. I'm working on one day being able to shoot for a magazine like Travel + Leisure. Wishful thinking huh, well until that day I'll just stock pile images just in case I get that call. I will add more photographs from this trip later.

I 've never been to Coney Island, New York. It wasn't what I thought it would be kinda deserted, but I'm glad to have experienced it. I even got the chance to eat a chili dog from Nathan's, pretty tasty. Here's a few images out of many I took.

I've been doing a lot of Photographing. Shooting Models, Food, Landscapes, Old Houses, Churches, etc. etc. . But my favorite is photographing Children. Recently I got the pleasure of meeting Ms. Betelhem Lowe. The daughter of John & Ikeda Lowe here in Savannah, GA. The day I went to her house for the shoot, she started off kinda of shy. When I mention I had cupcakes and balloons for her the deal was on. We shot in her backyard on a day that was very hot due to direct sun light, so I cut the session short. Here are a few from that day. Also be on the look out for Betelhem in some of my upcoming paintings.

Finally I'm back, to be honest I don't know where I went. But I do know I experience my first what some would call being "Burnt Out". One of my problems is I'm always saying yes to people, when it comes to my art. I'm o.k. with that except I stock pile too much at one time, then I find myself forgetting what I agreed to do in the first place. I'm learning now to pace myself and to spread myself out evenly, allow space between each project. I apologize to everyone on the receiving end, blame it on my head and not my heart. I'm not going to keep rambling , just know I back and I'm human ( which I'm just figuring out myself ). The cape has been folded, place in a box and stored away.
Here's one of the pictures I took while I was in NYC for a solo show at Dillon Gallery. I chose this picture to post, because it kind of reminds me of how I felt during my burnt out period.

I've been meaning to post this photo for some while now. I got it from this savage place in Savannah. I often wonder how can people throw away or have no interests in their family pictures. Maybe I'm the opposite because my family didn't take as many photos. I've always been envious of people who have loads of family pictures, and the ones with the home videos just blows my mind.

Here's a painting I have hanging in the studio. I sure wish I could actually have an old Model T. They look like they were very fun, although they might not have been that much of a comfortable ride. Oh well sometimes comfort is over rated (smile).

Here's some pictures I took at my favorite Bakery. "Back in the Day Bakery" in Savannah, GA. It was fun shooting, also seeing what really goes on behind the scene. I would've never thought they did so much work in one day. It makes you appreciate ever bite of those delicious cupcakes and sandwiches. To Cheryl & Griff I say that's for the experience, one I will not forget.
