Greetings from the studio, thanks for joining me, hold one moment please lets out on some music
Come….lets talk and take a little walk.
Come with me back to the mid-80’s
I do my first large piece on Masonite
Styled after Juan Miro
Later 1986-1987 Pollock comes into focus:
And a few random explosions
Can I get you something to drink, no? Okay let’s move to the 90’s and the oils things start to get interesting.
Still one of my favorite pieces
Oh and let’s not for get the 100 yr piece
Very few piece remain from the 90’s as most were sold it given away, so we’ll walk quickly stopping to chat just a moment
Start of mother and child series, I used to be 4 FT x 4 FT
Another take on mother and child
And we’ll leave the 90’s behind with something for my Father.
Then what happens you may ask? Benjamin disappears for 10 years? Kinda. Ya know life corporate jobs get intense, raising kids 😀
Then 2010 comes I’ve been working 60 hrs a week for 20+ years and my body starts getting really stiff, sore I’m fatigued all the time lol I joke that I’m getting old. Oh no life has something else in store for me. Jan 2011 hits and I can barely believe the amount of pain I’m in all of me hurts every morning like I’ve been hit by a truck. This goes on for 7 months finally I’m scared lets stop sucking it up and go to the doctors, sheesh guys go to the doctors ok? From July till November I’m poked prodded, X-rayed, MRI’d more blood is taken in multiple times than the human body has in it at once and they come to the conclusion on 11/4/11 hey you’ve got Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. Well the other shoe has dropped. So what do I do… I sleep,dream and remember who I was destined to be from birth.
Stay tuned for the last 2 years..
