    To this day (painted this about 12-13 yrs. ago), you can still find Jack high up in the mountains of Colorado running an old fashioned general store, and making some of the best steaks this side of the Rockies.

    Painted this as a gift for a friend. He allowed me to sail to Europe on a coal ship when I was 19, so it was just a really big 'thank you'.

    Painted this while living on a farm in the midwest, I added our barn cat to give it some life. I don't think I was quite 19 yet, as I remember being pretty anxious to get out and see the world.

    This was my first major piece, I did this when I was around 16 or 17 years old (I think). I remember the brush I used wore completely down to a nub, the guy that bought the painting requested the brush, so I gave it to him.

    old mural I did way back in the day (not sure what day)..

    This oil piece was done when I was about 21. Sad but true story, while living on the farm, we accidentally hit the bird used in this piece with a car. Got two uses out of the pheasant, a painting, and a really nice meal! poor thing.

    I struggled with this oil piece greatly and had to get help from my folks at the time, because I'm color blind. I finished this painting when I was around 17-18 yrs. old. The fun part that I remember was plucking a hair from my head and using it to detail the rifle!

    This is another old oil painting I did back in oh, I'd say around 1996-1997 I think. Sorry about the bad picture quality, I'll try to get a better pic sometime.

    Here's another old painting I did called Taos. It's Alkyd on masonite, and was done when I was about 18-20 years old. And oh my, the camera I have right now is not made for this, but I'll change that soon.

    Here is a small (7"x9") oil painting of Yellowstone National Park. A natural fire was cleaning house during my visit years ago to that wondrous place. I hope you like it! It's just a simple fast little piece.

    Here's an older pencil piece I did when I was about 21 (bad photo of it though).

    holy shit.

    very nice, and incredibly detailed paintings.

    i hope you'll post more, and such skill at a young age

    when did you first start painting?
    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    Dope Fiend: Thank you! I started doing actual commissions when I was 15, but only in black and white. In order to learn the fundamentals of lighting, I stayed in b&w for years, and then started in on color. I had all these huge aspirations of being one of the youngest professional artists out there, but life has a way of taking young aspiring people and flinging them into the oddest corners of the universe. Anyway, all these years later I still dream about being a full time painter.

    These are tight, maybe too tight. I looked through your SB and saw so much life in there and wonder why it doesn't show here. Your little landscape is the liveliest picture. Please use what you do in your SB in your paintings and also watch how hooves tread on the land.

    I laughed at the story of the bird; road kill tastes great.
