The Eye of Apollo: a acrylic painting By John McKinley Pride Jr

This is my first work in paint; I have never really painted before so it's a whole new world for me. I love how paint is forgiving in so many ways and it moves so lovely off the brush and mixes like magic. I can work on one piece for like a month and it will change every day. This painting is also featured on the front cover and inside of a book sold on LuLu.com called "Secrets Revealed in Lunchbox of Memories" By Pattimari Sheets-Diamond and Charlotte Huston-Johnson in 2011.

Elijah (Elijah's Comet) By John McKinley Pride Jr

Elijah (Elijah's Comet)I named this painting after my son because it reminded me of him so full of life and color. My wife thought it looked like a comet which even gives more of a reason to remind me of my son because every thing he does is so up in the air and every thing must be done fast. So I hope you love this painting just as much as I love it.

Three is a crowd By John McKinley Pride Jr

I called this silly painting "Three is a crowd" which is a feeling I get when in big crowds or really busy places. I am sure there is many other paintings with the same name but I really could not think of a better way to get the point across.
