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.

Discharge 6 (bakers dozen)



















Mixed Medium

all aprox. 8.5"x6"


I belong to a small but active group of mostly digital artists
Discharge 6

I have been contributing to our blog for about a year maybe a bit more.....
I have been lucky enough to be invited and included in the Discharge 6 community.
They are a proactive and encouraging gang that has included a crayon artist like me to contribute.

Occasionally there is a chap-book published, but it is electronic and can only be viewed through the web.
This time around one of the members has come up with the idea of creating a hard copy that will be bound and covered....
The deal is that each member that wants a copy, must submit a piece of original art work for each book that will be bound.
For this project there is 12 books being bound, for the 12 members that are involved....

The books are compact 8.5"x 6" but I am sure pack quite a punch...
The works above are my contribution to the project, there are 13 posted, I'm going to pick one for myself then send the rest to Germany where they will be assembled and sent out.

My work, like theirs, is not for everyone, but if you take the time to look and feel the message that's being sent... you usually will warm to it...
And maybe expand your view a bit to art and thinking

Momo...
Thanks so much...
unfortunatly, the book is not for sale... it is just a project of original work, that each artist that submits to, then receives their own copy. the cool thing is that they are all diffrent.
Thanks again


Kathleen...

Hallie...
Thanks, glad you like... there really pretty crude, but I have always apperciated the naive and outsider work..
and this has given me a chance to loosen up, and not worry about the finer points
