statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

Usual Dinner party? The painting really tells a story :) I want to know more about the story behind the painting.

your images are mesmerizing, tell me do you paint every day? This dinner party looks most intriguing and I think what is not said is almost as powerful as what is said, not always an easy thing to do.

thanks so much.....
I do not paint everyday, but I try
to at least think about what is happening with my canvases, I do that every day.
I always want you to say "why?"
as for the story, my little sister dated a 2nd conductor the the Cleveland Orchestra, I took artistic license in painting it...
but the outcome makes you ask the questions that I want you to ask
thanks
