“Semper Paratus” isn’t just a fancy saying for the United States Coast Guard, it’s their core. Whether in the middle of war or during peacetime, they stand up to protect this land by upholding the law, stopping illegal smuggling, and providing humanitarian relief. What makes “The Guard” unique is that they are the only armed service in the Department of Homeland Security with both civilian and military responsibilities. We respectfully thank all of the U.S. Coast Guard military personnel for serving non-stop and always being ready.

In LA, there is always time to play! Whether in the sunshine or the rain, this beautiful city is packed with so much color, excitement, and people that Eric knew painting Los Angeles would be a challenge worthwhile. After all, it is the biggest city if you’re counting how much land it occupies. But LA is known for being called the “city of angels” or a “dream city” where dreams can come true for many people here. See if you can find the not-so-traditional ‘angel’ in the painting.

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah in the United States. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon, which despite its name, is not a canyon but instead a collection of giant natural amphitheaters along the eastern side of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The Bryce Canyon area was settled by Mormon pioneers in the 1850s and was named after Ebenezer Bryce, who homesteaded in the area in 1874. One of the most well-known features of Bryce Canyon is the many hoodoos, said by the local Paiute Indians to be the indigenous Ancient Legend People who were turned to stone after displeasing one of their gods, Coyote, saying, "You can see their faces with paint on them just as they were before they became rocks. The name of that place is Angka-ku-wass-a-wits (red painted faces). This the story the people tell."

FINALLY! It has been requested by people for years but finally Eric has created a folk art piece about cats. The title was his youngest son’s idea and so “Kitty Wampus” was conceived. This piece is a tribute to cats of the world. This makes sense as cats are the most popular pet in the world (by almost 3 to 1.) Have fun getting to know these cat characters. You may even find your feline friend in the mix. Take a little time and go Kitty Wampus with us. Purr-fect.

Eric captures a delightful historical view of Lake Tahoe in this painting.
Paris, City of Lights is another example of how Eric loves to take a historical city and show how it keeps its heritage and character of the past while blending in modern day architecture and culture.

At 324 meters high, it is now permanently outfitted with twinkling lights and rotating floodlights, making it visible from miles around.
