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.

Near West Side

digital photo

This is a typical view of a street leading to an industrial area in my city....

And they say that there's no frontiers left to explore...

What a haunting scene you've captured. I see more & more to look at as I stare down the road. And the black & white just adds to the mood & feeling. And once I zoomed in, I can see, it is the "wrong way."

Nancie..
so glad you picked up on the "wrong way", your right one has to click on the photo to get all the gritty details.
thanks

Nice cars, though, and no parts missing. Interesting photograph.

The picture has a timeless reminiscent quality of work done on Tri-X, which I think is no longer an option.I'm also looking for, lets say alternative subject matter, maybe it's December! Cheers, Thea
