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.

Still Here...
From the Last Time I was Here

34"x 28"
acrylic/fluted sbs

This is a new painting that is originally for a new project :"glimpsing the eternal "

It is a project that Laura Ferrara and myself have started.  Addressing visions and dreams be it asleep or awake.   it is a open ended collaboration, one that I hope will continue to address all these things that appear in our lives that just can't be ignored

I have been very interested in Laura's paintings, they are very well done, original and thoughtful, and have intrigued me from the first time I saw them, they are dark and mystical and always seem to make the viewer "Ask the Question" to see her other work Larabee and Liza
