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.

Grey Dog
digital photo

Late Winter

After about 7 months w/o any time off.....
Its time to go fly fishing, will be up in N.E. P.A. in a mountain area full of trout streams, and martini's.
If I don't get one I'll get the other!

I really love the starkness of this, and the design of the building its in the near East side of downtown, god only knows how many shadey deals have transpired here.

Thanks yeah love the stark grainyness of the photo, will think of you guys while in the mountains

will do, thanks, I really do love the stripped down starkness, to me its very honest, and is easy on the eyes though not really pretty, it has its own beauty

The building reminds me of the art deco buildings in old Miami. Great photo. I loved going trout fishing with my late husband. In fact we spent our honeymoon camping along a stream in Northern California. It goes without saying vodka martini's were also a favorite.
