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.

Small World
aprox.  3ft. x 4ft.

I did this serveral years ago, I still like it....... sometimes I can't figure out what I was thinking or doing when I look at an older work. I guess this one passes the test of time.

I'm in the middle of a painting that been giving me a bit of trouble, as we all know, "these things take a little time"

How's everyone doing?    Good.

Hei hei JB
I enjoy your work
I see that you have strong "outside" influence.(guide¿)

when I create I wonder, "what is this painting telling me?"
its always a learning experience.

layers said...

yes, this painting really does conjure up some thought provoking-thinking-- you were definitely thinking some surreal things back then.

jbkrost said...

D fusion......
yeah, still learning, I figure I'll be where I need to be in about 200 years.
enjoy your work

Part of my problem is trying to turn off the thought process.
alot of it just does'nt apply to the real world.
