David Perry

For those of you who don't know this guy, well you should. David Perry is a wedding videographer and I recently had the privilege of spending some time with him. I was so impressed that I just decided to do this painting for him and his business. What goes around comes around.

Christmas Card 2010

For those of you who were on our naughty list that didn't get a Christmas card, have no fears because you get to see it here. This is the third year in a row that I have painted our Christmas card. My inspiration comes from whatever our family is going through or things that are a part of our lives and I am able to bring it out in some form or another. So I guess for this year, being now that we have an additional member of the family (little Naomi) it was expressed through three caroling penguins. So from our house to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Wortley's.

Jail break

So many lights, so little time.


This is an oil painting I did of my sister. I got this idea from Jeff Hein so I wanted to try it out for myself.

La Boheme

It's finished! This is in a hallway backstage of Capitol Theatre. I was asked to paint the mural for this production when it came to town. All the cast members signatures are around it. This was a big project. Its about 4' long and 3' wide. Your looking at about 30 hours worth of work.

Con Queso!

This painting was inspired by a trip that I took to Lake Powell with some friends that were trying to teach me spanish, and the only thing I could remember was the phrase "con queso" a.k.a. "with cheese". So here's to the Smith's....Con Queso!!

Song bird

Tweet tweet. I'm continuing my painting in photoshop. I finally got something I think I like. I am still struggling figuring out the texture that I want, but it's coming together. I hope he's at least singing in tune, he could be way off for all I know.

Sun glasses

This painting may be familiar to a lot of people. Jeff Hein, a local painter, was the original artist of this work. I like Jeff's work a lot, so I tried my hand at one of his paintings

El guitarrista

This is probably one of my first real paintings ever. I saw this painting in a store and liked it a lot. I thought about buying it, but then I decided to just go paint it myself. The original artist of this painting is Justin Bua.


This guy and the lady below were painted for the bountiful parade a few years ago.


This is the biggest painting I have ever done. It was six feet tall and four feet wide. I was asked to paint this for the Bountiful parade.

Happy Birthday monster

This was an image that I had done previously, and turned it in to something I am a part of right now, which is Riser Media. I think at the moment this is my third photoshop painting, still a work in progress.

Backwards Day

Recently at my internship with Riser Media I was asked to create this scene for backwards day, which was on January 31st. Swim fast sharky...swim fast.
