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.

Expanse

acrylic/canvas
31"x34.5"

These are the type of paintings I work on in between the ones that are a bit more dark..........
They help me out of that place.... The one I really would rather not stay for any length of time. But "that place" helps me with the work, at that moment.(confusing I know)

Anyway this one has found a new home, its going to Atlanta soon. to a Friend on mine to have the prime space above her mantel.

Lois hope you enjoy it

I love the colours, especially the bright red on the front. A dreamlike landscape and i love to dream (but that was already clear i suppose ;-))

jbkrost said...

thanks momo,
thanks alot...
if we don't dream, we don't create.
if we don't create, people like us are miserable
