Good ol James, 
Was a good ol' soul.
And a good ol' soul was he. 

 getting ready to launch the Virgin River

Virgin River. 


A lazy Sunday afternoon, two friends decided to float the infamous Virgin River.
With two Walgreen's weekly special pool floaties, the expert river-navigators braved 
the late Summer run-off.

Two Red Bulls in the equipped drink holders. 
35mm film camera.

The warm rays kiss a tanned, once fair, skin.
Between young fingertips the Virgin skims.
Perfect moments under the Sun.
That cool, blue river water runs...

Soft river bottom,
Under toes.
Shining down, looking up,
Summer light shows.
And showers avoir kisses, drowning life's woes."

If it is to be, it is up to me.


Note: This is the first public release of this work entitled 
"O Death, Fear". There exists only one real print of this in the World. Sizing in at a whopping 48"x62". This piece is highly desired and is made to make people stop and re-think Life. 

"The emotions that can be found in the piece will change your Life forever.

Think about it for a minute.
For some reason you chose to come here.
Out of all the events and happenings of this day,
You chose to visit this website.
You chose to read these words.
Is it Destiny? Is it Fate? Or is it just mere coincidence?

I am about to share with you something very special that exists in the world today.
It is called the Now.
This exact moment when you read these words is this Now I speak of.
The moments you spend looking at the artwork are all part of this Now.
It is the encounter when nothing else matters.
Only You and that thought/experience you are having.

Bills, life’s problems, a past death of a friend or loved one,
Schoolwork, the weather, turmoil, struggles, heartache,
Suicidal thoughts…. Love. Puppies, a beautiful sunset, Mother’s or a Father’s kisses,
The cool breeze of Spring, the warm touch of Summer,
A selfless, charitable act…
What you see and feel here will stay with you forever.
And by here, I mean Now.

The only question now is if the Now is forever?
O Death, Fear.
             Things to ponder while looking at this piece; Life, Love, Death, Heaven, Hell, Purity, the Now, and 3.


Inspirational Quote at your front door-

35mm film.
The photograph was taken just after dusk, while driving. (Ssshh! Don’t tell.)
A hillside with amazing blues and the last bubble of light setting down to rest.

An old art print I made in honor of 25 and Main in St. George, Utah.
How about a "Hooray" for cupcakes! :)

It was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June,
and a jews-worth haulin' cross,
Straw sandals under feet, 
Pure blood from scalp dripping down...

The Earth.

    When all is said and done,
      When this "life" comes to an end,
        What will you have to show for your existence here on Earth?
          Will you have regrets? Bitterness? Doubt?
Or will you remember the best times, the unforgettable moments, and the "now" moment we all presently live in?

Never forget the GIFT you have to be alive on this Earth and the ability you have to create. :)
