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.

digital photo

Hope you guys and gals are not getting tired of the industrial motif, I'm just creating images that are here in my area, that are at arms distance. This is my world for better or worse, as I said in my statment maybe looking at my world will make you pay a little more attention to yours.

This is one of the photos I was able to escape with, when the police got me for snooping around in a restricted area, They made me delete most of that mornings work. So I feel lucky to have this one.
I like the composition in this one. The subject matter is both beautiful and repulsive at the same time.

I enjoy seeing pieces of the world that are so unlike the one I live in. It gives me another perspective. And the photo is amazing.

thanks, yeah it can get bad, luckly I dont live real close to the place, I have to travel about 6-7 miles to get here.

thanks apperciate it, I keep trying to learning the ins and outs of photography, I think it will eventually make me a better painter

hey eva....
thanks, yeah I used to live somewhere in your neck of the woods,(wyoming) I loved it there, and I know what you mean, about gaining diffrent perspective, if you dont learn from others views, you dont really grow
thanks again
