There's nothing like frolicking around on a summer day... a fresh breeze, the warm sun on your skin, grass between your toes. It's important to take time to enjoy nature's wonder, whether it be a simple flower or each other. After all, we are all examples of nature's wonder too. So in your day to day haste, take a moment to appreciate the nature that presents itself to you. Because if you're not mindful, before you know it... oopsie daisy, it's gone.

My work is usually influenced by the season, though inspiration manifests in many ways. The ringing in of the new year, and the arrival of warmer weather, both signal to me a shedding of the past and a fresh new beginning. Or maybe the fact that I worked on my Christmas piece in September has thrown my internal clock out of sync.

Agree with Talltexan - the perfect artwork to turn up the heat in this deep-freeze winter. These guys' rugged and ruddy bodies provide warmth against the blue sky and green field background. Their handsome faces, esp the deep lidded eyes -- esp the blond -- are so playful. They seem really connected; in fact, the right arm of the blond seems to blend into the chest of the dark-haired guy. If either of them were counting daisy petals, the answer would probably come out the same -- he loves me.

He loves me...he loves me not! This image takes me back to my youth. I can remember a time, with my first lover, being outdoors, nude, like in this picture, and you've captured it! Your work is stunning & I'd be honored to have a piece to display with pride!

This reminds me of my first love. We were on the football team together in high school so long ago. No matter where we are we get together every few years for a football game, a steak dinner & an episode of "rowdy weekend rodeo"! Still to this day think of him as my best friend ever.

WOW! This work is an AMAZING piece......such beauty in the faces of these gorgeous men, to the one little daisy in the grassy knoll. Oh, how I hope to have such a wonderful partner like this one day, and to be able to lay in the green grass with the one I love is simply a dream I have often. Thanks for allowing me to keep dreaming with your work!!

Really like the playfulness in this one. Two guys in love messing around on the grassy hillside, who stop to admire a single daisy amidst the flowing greenery. What a reminder it is to cherish something; and, to give hope that Spring is just around the corner. Makes me wonder if they would, in real life, pick it to press in a book to for a reminder of the day. Great work on all that grass BTW!

I love this print. It's been a long winter here in New England and can't wait for my perrenials to start growing. This piece shows great weather, free love, and stripping down and enjoying nature.

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do, I'm half crazy to stick my $%#% in you. It won't be a stylish marriage - I can't afford a carriage, But you'd look sweet up on the seat Of a big dildo built for two.

For me, this is as beautiful as "Early to Rise" because it portrays two men in love and being totally at ease with each other because it IS the most natural thing in the world! I have "The underwear Drawer" and "Jock Noir" At some point I'd love to have "Fresh Linens" I am absolutely an admirer of a beautiful ass and you have captured so many of them! Thank you

When I first looked at this print I thought 'oopsy daisy' without realizing it was the title. You named it right as far as I'm concerned =) But you captured the warm sun on the back, cool grass beneath and hot love in the middle.

This piece is perfect to usher in Spring; blue sky, puffy light nonthreating clouds, green grass, flowers and young lovers. It reminds me of the Tennyson quote: "In the spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." These young mens thoughts have clearly turned to love, with a little lust thrown in.

This is such a fun piece :) ... love and laughter which is how it should be, pure, simple and basic love. The single daisy is very significant in that it represents them as one in heart, mind and body.

I almost giggle when I look at this print. The expressions as they speak to me are these 2 young handsome bucks were on a horse ride through the fields and stopped for a little "roll in the hay". In the midst of their passion they both look over and see, at the same time, a single solitary daisy; indicative of their connection to each other. To be as one.

I'd surrender my Daisy-Dukes to either of these handsome men. It's Splendor in the grass personified! I especially love the clouds in this painting. They really evoke the feeling of Spring turning to Summer.

This piece reminds me of the early part my relationship with my husband. We would roll around naked with grins on our faces, just enjoying each other as much as possible. Of course it was usually in a bed or the living room floor and not outside in the grass like these two adventurous studs. Nonetheless, this work encompass that joy of sexual solitude that only two people in love can share.

This brings back sweet memories of my first experience as a teenager with my best buddy on a camping trip together. We could not believe how easy and how simple sex was to experience so much pleasure. Oopsy daisy, I'm in you again! Oopsy daisy, you're in me again! What a beatiful weekend we had together exploring and stimulating each other's bodies with the overwheming joy we had being together in such an intimate way.

After a cold and gray winter, the trees bare and naked just as the bodies of these two young boys need to be in contact with each other, the nature and all things around, between earth and sky, to draw heat, energy, light and color , joy and love to return to smile and flourish. SPRING IN UNISON!

I love all your work but I think that this is one of my favorites...wishing I was one of those guys. The boys are enjoying a warm summer day. They are outside just horsing around frolicking.... a bit of wrestling and big smiles. The blond guy has just wrestled his buddy to the ground and has just whispered in his ear how he wants to make love with him right there right now....boys will be boys as he picks the daisy and gives it to his lover
