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.

we have a small tradition......

On goodfriday we go fishing for steelhead trout. usually it's a small group we fish most the day then end up in a local tavern and tell war stories, this year the fishing was so good we stayed late and never made it to the tavern, as fun as it is, you actually get worn out.....

here is a beautiful 9-10 lb. steelhead I caught and released unharmed.

I'll be back to painting as soon as the steelhead run dies down.
