Over the course of my life, my drawers have become full, overflowing with flyers, doodles, scraps of paper that for some reason I've had trouble throwing away.  When I hold them in my hand I understand the lack of practical value that they hold, yet they still hold some sort of power over me. I struggle with OCD, so I admit, that may be a factor, but at some point I came up with the idea of incorporating them into my artwork.  With this piece, I really took that to the next level by first covering up the entire canvas with  pages from my unpublished novel, clippings from ads from 30 years ago, stickers that I've had since I was 6 years old, doodles and even an extra registration tag that the state of Massachusetts send me for my license plate.  All of that created a rather colorful tapestry that was difficult to tie together, so I found it best to use black, white and grey paint to tie it all together.  I love this piece because the longer you look at it, the more you'll find to discuss and think about.   If you have any questions on this piece, or would be interested in commissioning me to do something similar, please contact me directly at soma79@soma79.com. 

This is the largest painting canvas I have ever painted.  In fact, the when I bought this huge 4 foot by 4 foot canvas I was surprised to find out that it wouldn't fit in my car. Luckily, the art store was only a short walk to my house, but while I was carrying the canvas home a gust of wind almost picked the canvas and I up like a kite.  When I got it home, I immediately knew what I was going to draw on it.  This image was inspired by a basketball documentary I saw.  Basketball is the only team sport that I'm a fan of.  What I like about this painting is how it looks abstract to some, but to others who see the image in full, they see the overall message of teamwork.  Order it today and I'll get this huge canvas delivered to your home right away!  If you have any questions on this piece, or would be interested in commissioning me to do something similar, please contact me directly at soma79@soma79.com.

This means you can use the camera on your phone or tablet and superimpose any piece of art onto a wall inside of your home or business.

To use this feature, Just look for the "Live Preview AR" button when viewing any piece of art on this website!

For proper scaling, stand 10 feet away from the wall.
You can also drag the image to your desired location.
