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.

This painting almost has a voyeuristic quality to it. It is a perfect mixture of soft lines and strong feeling. I really love it.

JBK,

I've been bad in my neglect of the blog world, but it's good to pop back in here and see that you have been painting your ass off! That's what I love to see!

Please know that my admiration and respect remain even though my presence isn't always apparent.

Thank you!
Brian
