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.

Industry
digital photo

Dusk...... North of the steel flats, I love the grainy grimey image's of black and white photo.

I've been working on a large painting that's taking a bit longer than expected, still working out some of the composition and detail

I love black and white photos, I think it's easier to see the simplicity in the world when you take away the color.

is it the morning or does the dust make it serene? i dont know maybe just the colour.
but its a great picture no doubting that.

Kay; I always try to create somthing with a bit of erieness or of questionable feeling, I tried to get real close a few weeks ago and was nearly arrested.

EO; good to see you! yeah its good with color, but I find it more, when its all striped away.

Raj; thanks for your positive comment, I apperciate it.

Thanks alot for all your comments,
I apperciate them and enjoy the thought that we all enjoy the same types of images, although we all get there in diffrent ways.
Our challenge is to keep finding our way back.
