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.

Baptism

acrylic/canvas

Seems I have always had a problem with organized religion......

I'm not sure where it came from, maybe as a child, being forced to attend church, or listening to the sermons or just being told what I should believe and not belive, or what I should always do or not do.

I always wanted to be my own person, and have my own set of values, right or wrong they would be mine. Not something jammed down my throat.
