Installing "The Journey" mural by Kreashun here at the Operation Smile headquarters in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Posted on October 20, 2015

A view of “The Journey”. A 20 panel 6′ x 20′ mixed media @kreashun mural which was created “LIVE” during the @operationsmile “International Student Leadership Conference” at Chapman University in Orange County, California has made it safely here to the Virginia Beach, Virginia headquarters. Students from the Virginia Beach City Public Schools Technical & Career Education Center are currently developing a moveable structure so that the mural can be enjoyed in different locations throughout this amazing building. It’s an honor for Kreashun to be here in Virginia Beach working once again with this awesome organization.

Many new works flowing out of the San Diego, CA studio.

Posted on October 6, 2015

So refreshing to actually find minutes between projects to spend time in the studio bringing visions to life on various surfaces through multiple tools. I’ve been following up on written “Moments” in my journal which match with taken photographs on my phone. I constantly feel moments in Nature and within my CORE that I simply know will become works of ART… The “Nature Series” and “Core Series” have been developing for years and I am pumped to share the newest additions with you from both series of work. From so many moments felt in Nature to the vibes that rattle my CORE, they are all so very appreciated, they CREATE the PATH!  #alivethroughart #everymomentchangeseverymoment #thenatureseries #thecoreseries

Featured above are: “Moment #13” Montana Gold Spray Paint on Birch Panel 14″ x 14″ x 1.5″& “CORE #5″ Liquitex Acrylic and Montana Gold spray paint on Birch panel 16″ x 16″ x 1.5”.

"The Nature Series" is constantly flowing in many new directions.

Posted on August 25, 2015

It’s always a great feeling to capture moments in your mind and turn them into a visual experience on a surface. “The Nature Series” which kicked off in early 2014 with “Visuals in the Park” has truly become my newest way of taking in nature’s landscapes and relaying them through color, shape, and geometry. Over the last couple years “The Nature Series”  has been constantly evolving in it’s own way and there are many new visions in the works. Nature has always been such an important part of my life and this journey of taking images from nature and turning them into moments such as “Moment #11” and “Moment #12” below, truly allows me to be in that certain moment and relay it to others. Here’s to many many more, “Moments” in Nature.

Years & Years & Years sitting in this chair at this same table. From town to town, studio to studio, coast to coast, you’ve traveled with me for twenty years. Pencil, brush, or spray paint to the canvas, panel, product, or wall, you’ve been there through so many creative times supporting me along the way. It’s crazy when you step back in a moment and recognize the objects that have been in your life and with you for the longest periods of time, through it all. Thank you table, I seriously don’t know where or what I would be without you. Here’s to the rest of this Artistic Journey together!

New works hitting walls!

Posted on July 16, 2015

There’s nothing quite like being HOME on the East Coast with family and creating at the studio nestled in nature. This past month in Virginia was filled with creative moments all over the state.

A little writing at sunrise on the shores of Virginia Beach, Virginia

Posted on July 3, 2015

“Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue.” -John Muir 1911

Virginia Beach Sunrise

Taking time to enjoy a few moments of writing along the shores of Virginia Beach, Virginia. It’s always an awesome feeling to come sit and take in these waters where I was raised. I think back through the years of my childhood and remember so many amazing moments with family and friends, it’s as if I never left. #‎johnmuir‬ ‪#‎nature‬ ‪#‎ocean‬ ‪#‎sunrise‬ ‪#‎virginiabeach‬ ‪#‎virginia‬ ‪#‎loveva‬ ‪#‎writing‬ ‪#‎everymomentchangeseverymoment‬

Nothing like cruising back through "FARM VEGAS"

Posted on July 1, 2015

I made a pit stop through Farmville, Virginia  on this past Sunday to visit with friends, meet with a few spots, and deliver “Reading Between the Lines” for the Virginia Children’s Book Festival. I revisited the “Warehouse Triptych Mural Project” which was done almost exactly a year ago. It’s just truly hard to believe sometimes how quickly time passes. We must do the best we can to enjoy every moment.  Go Get CREATIVE!

Getting a little frame work on with Dad at home in Virginia.

Posted on June 27, 2015

Nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning in VA to the sound of birds chirping and wind whistling through the trees as the sun peaks through to bring in a beautiful day in nature. Spent a little time on the front porch taking in this beautiful place and it’s surroundings while enjoying a little morning coffee with my folks.

woodframewebWhynowframeWEB

Dad and I popped to it and started building a new floating frame for “WHY”, an original work of mine from Mr. Edmonson’s painting class at Longwood University in 1996. It’s hard to believe that almost twenty years have passed since creating this piece. I’ve decided to make it a permanent piece in one of the guest rooms at my parent’s home. It will be fun to re visit these memories every time I return home to VA!

HOLY COW! It’s hot here in Virginia.

Posted on June 22, 2015

Punching through this Virginia humidity and getting at new birch panels, wood blocks, and skate decks in the studio. Being surrounded by ~Nature’s Song~ and the palette of “green” is so powerful. It speaks, asking to be utilized through creating. It feels so nice to be nestled back in these woods of this state where I grew up. I once built forts and played in creeks here, I now use this land and Nature’s offerings to create from. Thank You Nature!

Visiting Ben and Jen in Las Vegas to see "Moment #5" in it’s new Home!

Posted on June 16, 2015

After completing the KREASHUN mural in Las Vegas at the International Licensing EXPO on June 9-11th I was able to roll over and catch up with Ben and Jen at their home outside of the city. “Moment #5” from “The Nature Series” is in their collection. Ben is the son of Randy Edmonson who was my painting instructor at Longwood University. I last saw Ben over 15 years ago when he was 10 years old running around in Bedford Hall at Longwood. Ben is now also in the ARTS as a  Graphic Designer and  I am honored for “Moment #5” to be in his personal collection. It’s so awesome how years pass and “The PATH” continues.

Ben and I with "Moment #5" at his home in Las Vegas, NV

*Read a little about Randy Edmonson through the link below. Mr. Edmonson has retired from Longwood University now and is currently creating beautiful pottery, sculptures, and paintings in his mind blowing Farmville, Virginia based studio. After all these years, I continue to have an awesome friendship with Mr. E! I look forward to soon visiting his studio and creating together once again!

The "Eastern Rays" mural from Longwood University featured as Pat McGee’s new album cover

Posted on May 12, 2015

My longtime friend and former classmate at Longwood College, Pat McGee, has completed his 10th album which is released today! I’m honored to collaborate with @patmcgeeband from an artistic standpoint on this project. Pat is using visuals from the “Eastern Rays” mural in Bedford Hall at Longwood for the cover and packaging of his new album. A few color alterations and a “distressed feel” have been added to the original mural images to bring the classic 70’s flavor into the design. The new album is being printed on vinyl as well as digitally. Pat recorded with his dream musicians, Artists that were on some of the most classic albums of all time. The band of legends includes: on drums- Russ Kunkel, on bass-Leland Sklar, on guitars- Waddy Wachtel, Jeff Pevar & Danny Kortchmar. There are also some amazing special guests including Pat Monahan from Train, John Popper from Blues Traveler, Paul Barrere from Little Feat and more, as well as Pat’s long time band members. This album is a return to Pat’s songwriting routes heavily influenced by 1970’s singer-songwriter/classic rock genre.

Awesome moments is San Francisco, California

Posted on May 10, 2015

After finishing the custom artwork for the Paddle Surfboard project in Placerville, Ca., I decided to cruise on over and visit San Francisco. It was an awesome few days in SF visiting friends, hitting galleries, and just popping around in the city. I made the  journey through “Muir Woods” to connect with that amazing place once again, and camped at “Kirby Cove” campground which has now become one of my favorite spots. The views looking back across the Golden Gate Bridge were so inspiring and I will never forget the moments…. I am so thankful to be on this artistic JOURNEY!

A little *SUNDAY FUNDAY* with the "Nature Series"

Posted on May 4, 2014

•SUNDAY FUNDAY• Popped up with the sun this morning to get rolling on new panels for “The Nature Series”. This entire series kicked off last week with “Moment #1”, which can be viewed in the “Gallery” – 2014. The series is based on patterns, elements, and colors in Nature. Could be a flower, could be moss, could be a butterfly, fluttering through the trees, maybe even something I thought I saw…

Sunday Funday at the Studio in SD,CA.

Combining these natural moments with my emotions, gives me an edge of creating on completely how I feel and what I saw at a certain moment in the lands where I was raised. I can’t really explain a more core feeling in creating. The series will continue until my last days…

Warming back up to the "Left Coast" studio in SD!

Posted on April 18, 2014

Bringing some smaller versions of the •Eastern Rays• mural @longwooduniversity to life on panel here in the studio on the •Left Coast•. Re-visiting through color… #longwooduniversity

Studio photo 2014

I can’t lie…. The brutal winter on the “Right Coast” in Va was fun, but the sunshine in San Diego sure is nice! Feeling good to be back in the studio and creating. Until next time VA! Much LOVE at Ya!

Original works find new homes from the Left Coast to the Right Coast…

Posted on February 11, 2013

Super pumped for so many Original works to find amazing new homes on both sides of the USA.. One of my favorite recent stories is that I reconnected with my 7th grade Science teacher, “Ms. Cheryl Harris” over the Holidays and now I am super stoked to say that after years of not letting it go, I know now that “Into the City” has found the owner and HOME that I was being very specific to wait for after such a long time….into.the.cityIt’s so awesome when old friends, new friends, folks you’ve only met through the web, and even just on the street at events for the first time, come back around and into your career, to become a “COLLECTOR” and a part of your passion, a new part of your life, what a feeling!! I so APPRECIATE all of YOU!! Very recently, “Battle Alone”, “& What Why”,  “Wall Fly”, “Into the City”, “Airplane Mode”, “Take off”, “Honestly”, “White Sofa”, “Hot Date”, “Lipstick Buildings”, “Unwind”,  “High Octane”, “Humming”,  “2 Late”,  & all 8 of “The ORIGINAL HUB CAP Series” are hanging safely across the COUNTRY. THANK YOU, to all my Collectors and Supporters. YOU fuel me to continue every single day!!!!

I can’t believe that 12 years have passed since I drew this sketch in a sketchbook.

Pumped to have crossed paths with JFeather in San Diego, Ca and now be launching the next vision!! ***kreashun***

Here’s to hiking through the Sequoia National Park and how "John Muir" changes LIVES!

Posted on August 29, 2012

I haven’t admired a person as much as I do this Man, “John Muir” for a long time! Today changed my LIFE! Standing in front of and around the largest tree on the PLANET does something to you that you just can’t explain!! Hiking through the Sequoia National Park is something every person must do in a lifetime!! Thank you Mr. Muir and Sequoia National Park for all the BEAUTY you possess!

“Everyday opens and closes like a flower, noiseless, effortless. Divine peace glows on all the majestic landscape, like the silent enthusiastic joy that sometimes transfigures a noble human face.” August 31, 1869. -John Muir

Super pumped to announce that  “KREASHUN” is ALIVE…. After over 10 years as a sketch & idea in one of my books the right situation has found it’s way into the path… I bumped into Jason Feather about 3 years ago in San Diego, Ca. and after working on various projects and exhibits with or around him we began to come up with ideas on teaming up! It started out with an exhibit at the THREAD show in San Diego, Ca. and has already spread through more Exhibits and massive “LIVE” murals in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas with plans on starting to move through the USA soon…. J Feather and Monty Montgomery team up to create dreamlike murals that allow the viewer to enjoy the ride…. Oh YEA!

Bringing images to life!

I recently crossed into the land of doing my first portrait style painting of something that actually had blood flowing through the body! Honestly, I’m not really sure why I have never attempted this, but when situations present themselves, well, I guess we all push a little harder. Below you see an original photo and what I brought to life in my way!

Baily

I am now offering this as an option. I am currently working on my first photo of kids as well so we will soon see what that turns out to look like, hopefully not aliens. If you are interested in me pumping out your pets, kids, friends, places, moments, etc.. “Connect” with me and email me a photo that has all of what you want and I will bring a little of who knows what to it!
