A new story of gratitude from TRUNKS ART: Mike Ferg, a tribute.


Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - January 30, 2021 - This is a story about my college friend, Mike Ferg, who did the most selfless and thoughtful act that anyone ever did for me up to that point in my young life.  Not only did it come at great expense to him, it's something I've always been grateful for, even after all these years.  It can be accessed from the 'about' page on my website. 💖💖💖

TRUNKS ART can brighten up a muted, earth-toned space!

 

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - January 21, 2021 - If you're like me, then you appreciate how colorful art can make a muted, earth-toned room come to life in dramatic fashion.  This is what my "Under Pressure" composition would look like in this space.  Thanks for taking the time to contemplate the very important subject of home and office decor. :) 💖💖💖

TRUNKS ART shows how it comes to life: the making of "Your Choice," the first composition in the Nature Series!

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - January 14, 2021 - Here's something a little different.  How about seeing how my artwork comes together over time?  This example is of "Your Choice," the first piece in my Nature Series.  It takes 3 to 5 weeks and 40 to 60 "sessions" to pull it all together.  In one of the pictures, you'll see my first attempt at a ladybug.  Hope all is well and that you have a great day! 💖💖💖

TRUNKS ART offers high quality prints through Riverworks Imaging in Boise, Idaho!

 

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - January 13, 2021 - Well, this is fun.  I found this nifty lil' app that does, well, THIS.  I don't mention it often but I offer high quality prints of my artwork through my partnership with Bob Pleasure of Riverworks Imaging down in Boise.  Bob is SO awesome that I wrote about him in my Art Bio (My Holy Grail) which can be found on the 'about' page of my website.  Don't worry - we can all STILL have a great day despite not having a cool last name like Bob.  💖💖💖

Number 5 of 12 from TRUNKS ART! "Mother Earth" is the latest composition in the Nature Series!


Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - January 11, 2021 - "Mother Earth" (#5/12) - To me, the most valuable assets I have are my physical and mental health.  Thankfully, I realized that at an early age and managed to maintain these important attributes necessary for living a meaningful and purposeful life.  Besides knowing this intrinsically, I see it all around me when I'm out walking, hiking or riding my bike; and this rings true even at the largest of scales.  Our planet has only two natural resources - the Earth itself and children - and both need to be exquisitely cared for.  If I could instill just one thing into the minds of young people all over the world, I would offer them a quote from Hubert Reeves, a Canadian-French astrophysicist who said, "Man is the most insane species.  He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature.  Unaware that this Nature he's destroying is this God he's worshipping." 💖💖💖
