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

This is an area in the industrial flats of my city. it almost looks inviting.
it's not, so I guess I need to get away!
I'm going to Canada, to Northern Ontario for 2 weeks in the wilderness, there's only two ways in...
either float plane, or boat.
I 'm going by boat, armed with several canvas's, digital camera, and fishing gear.
as of now I'm going totally by myself.
it's something I've always wanted to do, a bit scary with the wild life (lions and tigers and BEARS) oh-my.
So I'm going to bit the bullet and face my fear.
if you don't hear from me... send help
