Each year, my work grows and evolves into something bigger, more interesting, and better. As an artist, there is no greater pleasure for me than finding genuine growth and improvement in my projects. As I have grown and matured, so has my art. Below are some of the pieces I recently created in my studio.

THE GARDEN TROUGH

SOLD

This is the back yard of the house on my family farm we called "the old house"
I'm not sure how long this trough in the foreground has been in that location, it is concrete and too heavy to move.  It is a wonderful cool place to water plants, chill a watermelon or a beer on a hot day.   This painting is a study of how light effects form, and the interplay of cool and warm on the objects shown.

WHISTLE STOP LAKE CITY SC

2009

My home town of Kingstree SC is just up the road from Lake City, the city with no lake, has many memories for me.  This painting was created on location on a hot summer day after a rain.

FRENCH FARM HOUSE

January 30, 2025

This continues to be a controversial piece with mixed reviews from art critics. To me, Chaos of Humanity represents an incredibly powerful theme that permeates our daily lives. With the use of color and abstract expression, I manage to evoke both the positive and negative energy of humankind, its selfishness, but also its incredible resilience.

DRINKS AT SIX

2015

The painting is an interior of a home built in 1810 on a plantation in Summerville SC.  It is a wonderful house to paint in and I used it as a studio for a while imagining all of the many cocktail hours observed within these walls was the impetus for this painting.  I also had these wonderful martini glasses.  Again the light reflected against the surfaces in this painting is the real subject, convincing the viewer to determine what is warm or cool solid or liquid, real or imagined.  This makes for an especially fun exercise after a couple of cocktails.

Uncle Manley's Cabin

June 2020 35 x 45 Framed Oil on Linen $12,500

The painting is done from the backyard of one of the oldest of my family’s homesteads in Cedar Swamp, a small farming community near Kingstree. My uncle Manly McCullough, upon returning from WWI moved into the home with my two unwed aunts, Daughter and Dorothy. Manley suffered from what we now refer to as PTSD from his terrible experiences at war, and the aunts were forced to move him into the unused kitchen house in the backyard. Despite the serene beauty of the cabin against the agrarian backdrop this painting depicts a lonely tale of a lost generation. Uncle Manley turned to drink as a last resort which ended his suffering in an early demise. Despite his tragedy his memory will always be woven into the fabric of this place. The trees covering the house and dark windows create a solitary tone which hints at the actual meaning of the painting despite the promising future indicated by the bright blue sky, summer green, and flourishing cotton crop.
