Gen-e-sis
Gen-e-sis // 20 in x 20 in // 4-Color Silkscreen Print on Woodstained Panel // Not much of a painter, I'm more of a multimedia artist. This piece was selected for the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Citywide African American Artists Exhibition in 2017. It's a portrait of my son at the age of 3, yet ironically, it continues to grow with him. I named it "Gen-e-sis" which represents the beginning of fatherhood and our journey together.
