I’m slowly going to be adding my prints to this shop over the next few days. Until the shop is fully operational, feel free to email me if you want one.
I have the next few days off from tattooing so I will be posting some paintings!

Finished with inventory. And made some grand decisions.
I’ll be selling new works directly through this site; from now on you will see a little “buy it” paypal button next to things I am selling, or the image itself will say “click to purchase”. All new art I make from now on, will only be for sale here, through my own site. Once I get a handful of new things finished I will set up a page for each series, and a directory/shop page, so you can find them more easily.
My rocks, sticks, moss, logs, and skulls will still be for sale at this shop; I’ve decided that for these things, etsy is still an ok venue. This may change later but for now, there they will be.
I think this will make life easier on me in general. I went through and took stock of all the finished art I have made, originals, prints- and I’ve got quite a bit of it. Everything I have on hand now, all my past work, will be for sale at this shop, so if you liked a piece you have seen me post previously, that is where it will be.
I took a few pictures of the inventory space, man I kind of enjoyed numbering and arranging my art, but I also hate using excel to keep track of it! what a pain in the neck that is! luckily, my friend Deb is going to help with that part.
If there was a print or piece you wanted that you do not see anywhere, email me! I can invoice you, and send it to you. My email is resonanteye at gmail, dot com.

The world is a very grey and dismal place at times. There are deaths, horrors. We are all alone in these little bodies, floating around, disconnected most of the time- from each other and from the ground we stand on. Most people DO live quietly, desperately, working and thinking and amassing a thousand new worries each day.
Most people walk around afraid, nervous. Or angry. Or just focused on the task at hand, which for more people all the time involves merely surviving the vicissitudes of economy and thrift, of bad jobs or no work. Of struggle. Life is mostly struggle and concern for most people on earth, and for the rest it can be even worse.
It’s our job, as artists, to show people that there is more. I am not a religious person, nor even a spiritual one. I do not believe that there is a sky-man or any kind of conscious entity watching over us carefully, or interested in our problems. I do not believe. BUT- I do believe that the world itself is a being of grace, and by truly seeing it, and being within it, we can lighten our weight. This entails details.
When one is in a chain gang, there will be a beautiful weed sprouting in the ditch. When one has lost hope and is starving, there will be the smell of dry morning air, and the sunrise. When the worries about the future become too much, there is still the present.
I know this doesn’t make up for any of it. I also know that there are times for all of us when we realize our solitude, when we are alone and in pain, in the dark. Cold and possibly hopeless. In those times it is art’s job to expose the alternatives, to bring the world into us and that way bring us out of ourselves.
Art doesn’t have to be “good” or skilled or perfect or even beautiful to do this. It will be a different view for each artist and a different piece that speaks to each viewer. Sometimes the crude and the ugly do this much more effectively than the pretty and the sweet- actually for me, when I am alone and in pain in the dark, it is the reminder that others have been there as well that helps. And art that speaks this way is often NOT beautiful to look at.
I need to sell art to live- to pay rent. To eat. If I could give it away and not be homeless I would. But the necessities of the world insist that my work must be valued at a number. I know that for some the value of their work is low and their hours are long and hard; that they must do work which is difficult, upsetting, dangerous. I am lucky to be an artist, I am privileged in ways not many are. I love my work. That alone is a stroke of fortune.
People who hate their work but must do it deserve my best efforts, because I know that at times my work, seeing my work and interacting with it, is their release and their reminder. Artists have an obligation to try their damnedest to do that, and to do it as best they can every time.
