My new group show is going to be great!  So Many awesome artists bringing all styles to O-Town!  I’m working on some mixed media pieces on paper - should be something different and exciting … (I may even bring out a large painting and let it go at the $100 or less price.)   I’ll [...]

Now showing Sundays at the Orlando Farmers Market, at Lake Eola

So, I’ve decided to take the Icons out again - this time to the Orlando Farmers Market at Lake Eola, in downtown Orlando.  You can find me there on Sundays from 10am-4pm.  I will have the Icons, (you can see my some of my selection on the gallery page,) and some other special pieces.  The [...]

“Looking good, Billy Ray!” “Feeling good, Louis!”

After my much beleaguered attempt at printing earlier this week, I decided to get myself a press.  Being the way I am, (that’s read:  an impetuous pain in the ass,) I had to have one immediately.  No catalog ordering, no traveling a ba-jillion miles to go get it…. no, no, I had to have it [...]

However, in the time since the [...]

‘Icons: #3 through,’ is a success and is still running!

First, I have to say thank you.  Thank you to everyone who helped and supported me as I was working through this project and the lead up time before the installation - my wife and parents, especially.  Thank you to all of you who showed and kept up interest in this idea.  Thank you to [...]

Each piece is painted on metallic leaf over wood panel.  The images are singular ‘iconic’ images meant to transcend their individuality and singularity by recalling archetypal meanings.  By relating to the viewers’ personal and collective meanings ascribed to these universal images, the paintings can serve as a sort of translator that overcomes the boundaries set [...]
