20" x 30" oil on canvas


When the one you hold most dear has been in chronic pain with no end in sight, lack of sleep and no sign of lasting help, can't remember the last time there wasn't any pain, rational thinking and reason has temporarily been itched away. Watching and listening to your most beloved moan and cry, with sights and sound you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy, claws at your very soul. When the one most positive, optimistic person you have ever met has lost all hope and has attempted to exit the stage. Sideline judges speak in shadows out of ignorance and cast reasons why, out of their houses made of glass. The raw grit of like won't let you run. Selflessly giving, you are the eternal optimist for the other.

Dark and lights  24"x 24" oil on board
Urban daily life in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. Beauty is everywhere if you widen your lens of perception.
Pit stop 8" x 10" oil on panel

Looked like this hydrant was either new or just painted, either way I had to stop and paint this little bright beast. I'm just glad no dogs came around.

Back lit 20" x 20", oil on canvas
My wife was kind enough to pose for this one. We have some frosted windows in our apartment and the light was wrapping around in such a delightful way  I increased the blue pushed the saturation, while keeping the shadows simple due the complexities that confused my senses. I have this for sale straight from my store at my website. Unframed at the moment but I will ship it for free.

From the top 8" x 12" oil on panel

I painted this at Kenneth Hahn Park. 

Sunday, March 02, 2014

Trying to stretch and grow as a artist, in doing so I have to try new things. I have always wanted to paint on some wood and have the wood grain poking through. I also wanted something that had a old folklore, fairytale vibe going on as well. Therefore I submit to you my latest piece. Rather large for a experimental piece. So fun to do.



Love the demon
36" x 36" oil on wood panel
Everyone has their own shadows. And some people call those shadows, demons. Denial, separation, and projection are the main signs of such hauntings. One must befriend and love their own demons then one finds those demons are there to show you how distorted your beliefs really are.

I am selling prints and some other goodies at society 6 of this piece.

But if you want the real deal original contact  me at kresoja@gmail.com
