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.

American Soul

acrylic/canvas

about 4ft X 2.5ft

I painted this about 15 years ago..........

In my mind it was a cautious commentary on life liberty and the pursuit of happiness and freedom of religion, in this country.

What a bunch of crap! here we are years later........ nothing has gotten any better" anywhere" let alone this country. I might be a bit jaded after 8 yrs of the Bush regime

this is a really good work ...

8 years of bush made everyone in this world get a little bit more hoppeless and cinic .
but good artworks survive all this .
even so , America still is in this world the place closest of all the freedom values .
as i se .
