"Man with a Fish"


The big feet symbolize that I never want to forget where I came from, no matter how different my life has become. It can be dangerous to forget your roots. Your ego takes over, and you’ve got wings on your feet. If I got to full of myself, I wouldn’t be the man Susan fell in love with and married. I wouldn’t be the father of my children.

"My feet are firmly planted on the ground and that’s where I want them to stay, totally grounded. It’s important never to become bigger than your shoes." Mackenzie Thorpe


"I’m trying to use color to get back to that place where I can draw with feeling and emotion, a place where it is impossible to make mistakes."
