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.

What a grand statement you have made with a lone sea horse. I like this and sea horses. They make me wonder why they look so much like a horse.

Great! I love seahorses. Especially because one day i was allowed to be a guest on a small french fisherboat. And while they were sorting the fish, one man came to me and gave me a tiny little seahorse. I was delighted to see such a wonderful creature so close and i was amazed by the strength he had in his tail. He wrapped his little tail around my finger. I was very sad too because he was caught. So i carefully let him slip in the sea again, hoping all turns out well for this wonderful, strong little creature. Against ones better judgement i suppose, but i couldn't let him die in my hands. The sea is his home....
Well, that's why i love seahorses so much!

Momo...
Very nice!
they are lovely creatures... I have had this one about 20 years.
it sits on a shelf for all to see.
unhappily it is not alive, but I do enjoy it.
