My work is 100% influenced by my 30 year career as an advertising art director. The pieces are oversized TV commercial storyboard frames or print ad comps. The medium is fresco mixed with liquid and dry pigments. The drying cycle allows the medium to be sculpt and burnished before it sets . I use old boards from a barn as my canvas. I embellish the pieces with historical or contemporary object that improve the image.

FYI Pieces are durable enough to hang outdoors.
