Hey!  Thanks!  I really really appreciate you.  And… I know we’re gonna get along great.  Don’t worry, I hate spam more than you do, so… I’ll never spam you.

Could you go like my Facebook page while you’re here? (It will open in another window)  https://www.facebook.com/TheArtofOri– It’s the easiest way for you to check out my new art as I create it daily.

Here’s a selection from my body of works to give you a taste of what I do… More awesomeness coming to your inbox.

I used to be (guess I still am) a photographer… and I do the occasional photo-art.  This one’s from 2007, before I was painting on a regular basis.

This is a recent set of examples of something that started with a photo:
