fROG

fROG is the alias I painted under from 1992-1999. It was a nickname given to me in my Army days. During those years, it was natural for me to sign my paintings as fROG. This makes for some interesting tracking of my art over the years, because up until now, I never had a webpage dedicated to this time period of my work. In addition to the work you see here, there are approximately 200-300 undocumented works also out there from that time period. And not everything was abstract. There were a lot of landscapes and surrealistic pieces that led up to the more abstract work. Over time, I hope to reconnect with some or all of those works, since I'm sure they've all had their own unique journey since I painted them.
