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.

After the War

acrylic/canvas

large... about 5.5ft x 3.5ft

With all our warriors returning from the" field of operation"(as they call it), when they get home, and are alone with their loved ones, and their thoughts about what went on, what they had to do, what they were ordered to do.....I can only imagine there is a break down point......

This is what the painting represents, a young persons anguish and coping.... trying to hide behind a vail of duty. Only to be found out by the one that loves that person the most.

I am a vet. not a combat vet. these are things I do not know about/but can only imagine.

well its been a while since my last post,......lost camera (replaced) broken computer....(replaced)

I'm afraid to see what breaks next

This painting tells lots of stories, makes you wonder what kind of stories. I like the bright but soft colors also.
