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.

Speaking in Tongue's



acrylic/woven canvas

aprox. 12"x16"

When I was a younger I saw a documentary on Appalachian churches or sects that had a preacher that would dance,sing and pray with a venomous viper. all the while being protected by the holy divine

This is a small painting, painted in a crude style (that appeals to me) paying tribute to those people. That I always found interesting.
