create the art you want and nourish yourself within that art, You Suck at Photoshop

Great art is not the product of genius or produced by people with greater talent. It is what you see and how you see it that makes great art great.

"Making art is not difficult, but it can be frustrating. Often the work we have not done seems more real in our minds than the pieces we have completed. Most artists live with doubt and uncertainty, worrying whether there is an audience or reward. The result is the artist does not having a secure grounding before beginning to create. You must set aside your doubts and fears and push though YOUR own negative beliefs. Then YOU will be able to create the art you want and nourish yourself within that art. "

my new store,


My art hints at a story and then invites you to finish the narrative. My style has been called Inspired Expressionism, which combines impressionistic brush strokes and a touch of realism to create the atmosphere and lighting woven into my work.

Extra (not for everyone…potty mouth)
You Suck at Photoshop

“You Suck at Photoshop” tutorials by Donnie Hoyle. They are dark, hilarious, and surprisingly informative.
So watch them, laugh your ass off, and call it “work”. These tutorials are hysterical, maybe too crude for some, still educational.

- watch a poor guy’s marriage fall apart before your very eyes while you learn some useful Photoshop moves. ...rumor has it that Dane Cook is doing these (the voice does sound similar).
