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.

Earth Day
digital photo
40 Years

20% awe 80% disgust
I shot this, this past winter I'm sure some of it is steam, but most of it is just awful! it is before sunrise and freezing cold, sometime around Christmas.
It was shot just East of the industial area I find interesting and like to snoop around.

Dont forget to turn off the lights when you leave the room!  thats all we can do to counter this.

Wow I love how dark this one is. It feels like a secret moment of running through the night.

It seems there is always some little good thing that we can see in the bad.It's killing us, but the scene is fascinating.The repetition of the smoke and the lights and velvet darks make this a great photo.
